Big Spray of Earthquakes Hits Oklahoma

Actually of more interest to me than a super quake in Iran, is this unbelievable spray of M4's and 3's in Okie-land.  They continue to inject and are now setting themselves up for another M6 right under the city.

These earthquakes have captured more strain energy up the megathrust.  In other words it is growing, just like a baby New Madrid.  If they can inject 30 km of the fault, we might break the record for a triggered earthquake and get up to an M7!  The church bells will ring in Boston!  Don't you just love pig-headedness.  :)

Update:  And still they come.

Update2:  Another 3.6!  These aren't aftershocks, this is something new ripping.
