Oklahoma slides towards the thrust - M3.8

This last earthquake is split exactly between a thrust and a strike-slip.  It is at the exact intersection and will be the trigger point for the M5 thrust coming soon (maybe).

Addendum:  This junction point has absolutely nuts since then.

This doesn't mean anything in terms of when we expect the M5, but this sort of activity brings in a 6 in the far regions of the uncertainty fuzz.  A pure thrust 6 does not bear thinking about.

Add2:  Still nuts.  I guess 20 M3.8's might be equivalent to a 5.  :)
