Oklahoma earthquakes - getting close to a storm of 4's
Ok, just 2. But I'm waiting for 4 or 5 M4's. That would mean something really big. This was a shallow strike-slip under the poor old Anthony courthouse. It can't take much more! We've also seen a fair bit of activity along the OkCity thrust fault. It's all primed for a 5 or 6 thrust, which will shed some bricks for sure.
Because of the deep earthquakes, we're cruising with a 1% chance per month of an M7 thrust. This would make some parts of the city look like Nepal. But it will never happen .... Don't worry, be happy!
Third 4: This just in. Shallow thrust, intensity 5. Ok, we can now call it a storm. Expect one or two more, and then a fiver or six. Dilation Theory Rules.
4th 4: That's enough, get on with the show.
