Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

Another Swarm of Earthquakes Strikes Oklahoma

Posted by feww on May 9, 2014


19 Quakes Strike OK in 6 Days

The events include at least 6 earthquakes measuring 2.5Mw or greater in the last 24 hours with the largest quake measuring 3.5Mw.

Centered at  36.566°N, 97.616°W the M3.5 quake struck at a depth of about 4.3km (2.6mi) on May 8, at 20:40:32 UTC.

  • 6 earthquakes measuring 2.5Mw or greater have struck OK since yesterday
  • The largest quake measured 3.5Mw
  • 50 Percent of the quakes measured 3.0 or greater.
  • At least 19 quakes measuring M2.5 or greater have struck the state of Oklahoma in the past 6 days.
  • More than 108 quakes have occurred in the state during the past 30 days.

USGS Acknowledges Heightened Seismicity in OK!!

“The rate of earthquakes in Oklahoma has increased by about 50 percent since October 2013, significantly increasing the chance for a damaging quake in central Oklahoma,” a report quoted USGS as saying earlier this week.

However, there was no mention of WHAT, WHY, HOW, WHERE, or WHEN!

  • WHY would the smaller quakes lead to a major quake?
  • HOW, WHERE, or WHEN would a major quake occur?
  • WHAT would be the magnitude of the forecast earthquake?

USGS has correctly identified what is NOT the cause of hundreds of quakes that have rattled Oklahomans in the last year or so.

“The recent earthquake rate changes [in Oklahoma] are not due to typical, random fluctuations in natural seismicity rates,” said USGS.
