Just sort of curious~it seems like they've been discovering several new faults recently. Surely they aren't new, are they? Wouldn't they just be coming to light now because of better instruments and equipment?
They are brand spanking new! They still have that "new fault smell" too~!

Just kidding. It was a good article. Who knows how many fault lines there are splintered off the larger fault lines.

I felt it here in Tulsa Ok! I am not joking. The kids were outside playing and I thought they might have thrown something at the house because things on the walls were rattling, but they werent near the house and then I found out on the news that it was an earthquake shortly after!

Looks like your quakes are back... A little stronger than the ones you were describing a couple of years ago. Thankfully not a 7.0 though!

Stay safe and hope the preliminary reports of no damage are true.
