Oklahoma earthquake rate back to high level
One reason that I closed my Earthquakes g+ collection was that OK had totally shut down, and I had nothing to say. :) Now, it's cruising again with one m4 a day, and one m5 a week. I had been worried about the pause, since I saw no reason for it, the oil and gas fracking seemed to be at their normal levels for the year. I do expect a pause when Winter hits because the gas frack business in Penn. shuts down. This year, however, Texas is going full blast on Permian oil fracking.
This rate should give us a 6 once a month. Perhaps the 7 has to wait until next year. Nobody will care about a 6 unless it is a shallow thrust near the city. I had joked that the pause was a conspiracy to make Grumpy Trumpy look good until the election.
