Nobody in Oklahoma responding to USGS felt map

It's funny.  I guess after hundreds of these things you start to ignore them.  This was a sizeable M3.8 right under Medford, and nobody felt it (or actually bothered to report it).  Time to get some strong ground motion instruments there.  I recommend a broad-band, high range seismometer, but that would cost real money.


Sunday Takes the Cake

11 significant earthquakes.  This beats the previous record of 7.  Again, the main mechanism is dead unless we get a large earthquake on the thrust fault.  I have faith that it will come, but who knows when.
