Oklahoma earthquakes fixated

Recently, they have all been at one spot.  This was a 4.3 that just happened.  Most appear to be quite deep, as their intensities are quite low.  I have no idea as to what could be happening.  When they are this deep, no fluid is touching them, they are a response to regional stresses.  I had expected earthquakes to propagate up to the NE but this isn't happening.  We'll have to wait.

There is a limit to how much strain energy can be released at one spot.  This just has to mean something ominous.  :)

ps.  deep normal earthquake, indicating compression and longitudinal cracking.  Every earthquake here has been like that, they just had an m3.5
