Large m5 Oklahoma earthquake

OK earthquakes have been on the general decline since the price of natural gas tanked, but there is still some fight left.  This was an oblique strike-slip, normal fault mechanism, which means it is one up on the 'Whimpy' scale.  It also means that it is underrated, so that's why I am calling it an m5.  An Intensity of 6 should mean at least one chimney down.  This might be the last hurrah before the Spring.
