Unfortunately, reading some articles on that fault line, I agree that if you use historical time difference between major quakes, that area is overdo.

BTW, I don't think you could 'run' fast enough. Best hope is that you are high up after it hits - didn't get taken out because the mountain you are on 'fell'.

Agreed. Anything at sea level up to 100 feet is going to be under water....unimaginable really. a 9.0 would be horrendous along the fault line and towards the coasts of Oreon, Washington and BC.

Default Earthquakes 2012

In 2012, USGS records show that earthquake activity was down. Although there were two quakes above 8. (same as 2004 and 2006, but fewer than 2007 when there was four). There were 12 quakes above 7. in 2012, which was less than all the years since 2000, except 2005. 2012 also produced the fewest Earthquakes between 6. and 6.9 in the past 12 years.

How many 5.6 earthquakes have happened in Oklahoma that you know of in the recent past? You folks can feel free to make your best guesstimate on what's going on but there is enough free flowing scientific data that clearly shows that we're very close to getting our royal asses kicked real good before the 2013 rolls in. I can't wait to see the looks on all the smug faces when the stars start rapidly rolling across the sky....LOL OK! Back to cookies and milk and another episode of Monk before bedtime...(love that guy!) Sleep well. Goodnight.
Actually, Oklahoma has a long history of significant earthquake activity. I'm just sayin'.

Basically, you can take all the precautions in the world to protect yourself, then some A$$hole will run a stop sign and T-bone your car killing you.

Enjoy your life instead of wondering "What if", stay off the obvious stuff like playing on freeways and running with scissors!

I am a person that will pursue what want to do after I've investigated all things regarding that desire. I certainly would NEVER let a past history keep me from moving somewhere. If lava was spewing out of the crater in the neighborhood in the area then that might change things a bit but earthquakes predictions are still not very predictable. Hey I even run with scissors at times and I am still alive Never play by or on freeways... can't stand the smell of carbon monoxide ...
