New earthquake report puts state's risk in plain language

Oklahoma Earthquakes
They got their chance today. The reporters on tv all look a bit uncertain, and with three quakes that strong they have real damage. The poor critters at the shelter too. I'm guessing someone is checking out the capital very very carefully.

The news reported several reps have said they need to do something about injection wells. Just now? When a swarm hit OKC? Lots of very rattled people?

Not a big surprise. Guess it takes a surprise wakeup and some unsettling moments to get it.

That Edmond-Guthrie hot spot acted up too soon from a lull, since the state legislature isn't in session yet. Maybe that hot spot will still be active for the legislators when they will soon get back in session. But it's not too soon for people to get riled up enough to complain to the legislators until then, to try to make sure they get the impression that doing something more aggressive to try to stop the earthquakes is far more important than voting for a move that would restore the Ten Commandments monument back to Capitol grounds.

That Ten Commandments Monument can serve as the gravestone when the state capitol disappears in the first major quake to hit OKC.

I'm thinking a lot of people think the first major quake has. Try something closer to a 6.something.

In the early 1900's a lot of people left Iowa and came to California. They settled predominantly in the same area, and built as they built in Iowa. When the Long Beach quake hit, entire buildings crumpled and crashed. My great aunt and uncle lived in one on an upper floor. She grabbed something going out the door. It turned out be be a frying pan...

(The long beach quake was also caused by all the drilling and leaving empty space in unstable ground, which eventually fell.)

It will be a lot more than the capital which crashes.

I'll bet the oil companies buildings are very carefully built TO earthquake standards.

Perhaps last night's "activity" will alert them. Friends in Tulsa felt the aftershocks throughout the night.
