I'm afraid the earthquakes are going to have to start centering from out in the middle of nowhere, like 12 miles west of Perry, to directly under Oklahoma City before state legislators or the Corporation Commission will get more aggressive about taking actions to try to make them subside. Probably until that happens, Oklahomans are simply going to become more and more complacent toward taking the earthquakes as a serious threat.

New earthquake report puts state's risk in plain language

Seriously, since most Oklahomans are not sensing these earthquakes, why should they be vigilant about it? They're usually so weak, a lot of people can sleep through them.

Recently I took the top piece of my storm door frame and repositioned it. The door frame has shifted enough the door wouldn't shut and hit at the top. The inner wood door won't be so easy to fix if it does that. Yes, the house settles with rain, but it didn't twist the frame. The door was replaced since an earlier quake made it impossible to latch the door. When the wind blew, I put a heavy table in front of it.

I'm from California and I know that quakes will come now and then. But you actually get MORE damage from the small ones which are more frequent than the occasional big ones. We had to fix the door frame there too. But we had two train tracks running behind our yard too, and they ran once an hour. They shook about as much as the small quakes, and lots of doors and windows were put out of shape with the shaking. That house was twenty years younger than this one and normally on a dry spot of ground.

When some quake comes, triggered by the abusive policies of the oil lords, and it undoes all the work on the capital or knocks it down, I wonder what they'll say, or is that what is needed to make them be responsible.

I say Stillwater pass its law even though the state says it doesn't apply and goes to court and follows it all the way until they win.

How about an earthquake followed by a tornado?

No, but one sure happened during a severe thunderstorm warning in 2011. It was an after shock from the 5.6 earthquake. I heard a thundery noise and upon first thought, thought it was from the storm. But then heard my french doors rattle and thought that was an earthquake.

The problem we have here in Oklahoma, we are now sailing through uncharted waters, And our governor is screaming, "full speed ahead"! How do we know we're not going to have a big one that really knocks the heck out of Enid or Stillwater? Could Oklahoma really afford to rebuild Oklahoma State University? Our government would first blame it on Obama and then run to Washton begging for money!

Include Cushing in on being worried about. The experts don't seem to know how strong of an earthquake the tanks can withstand at the Cushing oil tank farm without bursting open.

If I'm right, OSU is self insured for damages but doubtful it it's sufficient to cover a large F-5 tornado or a record breaking earthquake centered near OSU.
