Oklahoma earthquake - M4.2

I think this one is underrated, since it is a deep normal earthquake.

And the beachball is tension, which is usually a prelude to a larger thrust.

This just came after a big New York Times article showing the corruption.  The comments are great.

My local correspondent reports that this was biggest one yet for him.  Sure hope his bricks are tied in.  :)  Normal earthquakes are weenies, so he must have been right in the zone.

Update:  Just what I thought, this was underrated, since most normal earthquakes hardly give out any PGV.  Distant monitoring puts this as an M4.9.  If my dilation theory is correct, then there should be no earthquakes for a while.
