Oklahoma earthquakes back at full blast
A series of earthquakes that may have given out the seismic energy of an m6. Who knows what's worse, a big thump or a whole bunch of them? Lucky for everybody, these earthquakes were very deep and with a 'normal' mechanism. Still, it puts the seismic energy rate on par with the Spring, and we can expect a 'real' m6 soon. So far, all the m6's have been deep normal. There is no physics supporting that this should continue. It's like flipping heads in a row, although each flip is 50/50, you know this run can't last.
I suspect the gas frack waste is now rolling. The price of natgas is up, they know we're going to have a bitter winter, and OK is where the action is. :)
ps. you can see here that the aftershocks describe a fault 3 km long, which is an m6.
