M3.0 earthquake Oklahoma - along the ridge

This is in a new cluster.  Note the more rugged national forests, since I believe these are along the 'spine' of the megathrust.  OK is such a mess now with disturbed stress that perhaps there won't be another big one.  Who knows?

Afterthought:  It's quite possible that with lots of injection that this will resemble the Toronto pattern, with the major fault under Ok City, and a disturbed hanging wall to the east.  I expect that things will remain fractal up to M6 or M7.  That is, the usual curve of 10 M3's for an M4, etc.
