Oklahoma Earthquake Size Argument

The Fed's want to keep this as an M4.3.  The local guys want to pump this up to an M5.1.  Article.

OGS research seismologist Austin Holland said continued analysis of the survey data showed the epicenter was about 8 miles southeast of Norman, south of Lake Thunderbird near E Post Oak Road and 84th Avenue SE. Initial reports rated the 9:06 a.m. quake as magnitude 4.5 or 4.3, but Holland said further analysis showed a consistent magnitude of 5.1.

I think people really want to pump up  their local earthquakes.  :)

ps.  Right under an artificial lake.  Could this be water related?
