Texas has its largest earthquake -- nobody around


This is a 5+ normal (extension) earthquake, caused by injection.  

It's in the middle of nowhere.  No geology is known, but it looks like an ancient impact crater with circular edges.  I can't see any growing mechanism, but the earthquakes will get bigger.  Next will be a 6 encompassing the whole fracture fault area.  A few people will feel that.

Until it gets a spur, I can't see it going to M7.  However, continuous injection can do anything.
