Oklahoma rattled by state's largest quake

A 5.6-magnitude earthquake struck central Oklahoma late Saturday night - the largest to hit the state since record-keeping began.
The quake struck 4 miles east of Sparks in Lincoln County at 11:53 p.m. ET, the United States Geological Survey said.
There were no immediate reports of damage.
It was the same area where a 4.7-magnitude quake struck at 3:12 a.m. ET Saturday. By 8 a.m., geologists had recorded more than 30 aftershocks from it.
The strongest quake previously reported was of magnitude 5.5 on April 9, 1952, according to the Oklahoma Geological Survey.

  6. As EQ's devastate, you jerks crack jokes

    Has anyone else noticed that since earthquakes began coming out of their closet, gays and those who support them act as if these EQ's are 'normal' no matter how many occur? If sodomy produced little turd butt-babies, they would say that they stink naturally, and that their own god made them smell that way.

    @as eqs devastate: yeah, we're pretty devastated. If the pats win, it'll be all better. And that chile one? 639 miles from the nearest recognizable big city? How will they ever pull through?

    Is fracking maintained by government backing ?

      The government will maintain the backing of the fracking, only if they do the tracking.
