Second Oklahoma earthquake wave starts


This is on the main line, a highly directional M4.5, which has been registered as a 5.4 in the direction of the hammer.  We should expect a bunch of these, and this will be the #2 attempt on the 10-chamber Russian Roulette gun.

Once we have the 4 or 5 major quakes, then there will a slow diffusion of the strain field, causing many quakes in the OK mechanism, and possibly tickling New Madrid again.  Last time I gave a Yellow Knick-Knack warning for all those people on soft soil in Eastern North America.  I don't what I'll do this time.

This was a shallow shear giving the highest intensity yet for a strike-slip.  Every time the strain shifts, all the injectors give a little cheer, since it opens up the rock a bit more.  They better hurry up and make their money now, you never know when it will end.  The Tragedy of the Commons.

To repeat, this will be the second strong signal for a New Madrid-type sequence.  However, the signals could go on a long time.  I give each signal a 1 in 10 odds of being right.

PS - The great experiment.  I sometimes use the expression 'Too stupid to live'.  But how stupid?  It would be great for those Repub candidates to have a debate OK at right time.  Then something good will come of this.  :)  And we look at the trump, who would answer our question.

UN - FRIGGIN - BELIEVABLE  This earthquake was actually 'upgraded' to a 4.7  I've never seen this.

This ONE WAS FRIGHTENING! We can expect more? Oh Boy, I can't wait, I did wrap up and pack away all breakables that I couldn't replace. Thanks to you Harold, as I have said before, I'm glad SOMEONE is worried about and paying attention to our little injection induced rumblers!

This one had the gun pointed directly at Tulsa. There should be some bigger ones this week, but they might not be felt as much.
