Still not serious on Oklahoma earthquakes

The New Madrid seismic network just located an M0.9 earthquake.

Now, there's nothing happening there, so this great detection is a waste.  But it's run out of Memphis and they have money.  After all, nothing scares up government money as 'The Return of New Madrid'.

Now, despite the warnings that OK is the new California, they still don't report anything below M2.5.  Is that just because of the map I use?  I doubt it because their depths have a huge uncertainty.  If they could get down to M0.9 and depth accuracy of 1 km, then they would see something they don't want to see.  Well Mr. Senator?  Forget your task force, just cough up more money.  :)
