Thanks for making your post and jump starting me on checking the seismic today; and yes there is a very, very fine line.
Thanks for all of your kind words also. It's good to know that you understand that earthquake detection takes place days and sometimes weeks before
I'm just doing some background research right now getting ready for the future. I suspect that whom ever is creating the earthquakes around Oklahoma
City, Oklahoma is partially responsible for the M7.2 earthquake that struck Baja California, Mexico. I also suspect that they will be responsible in
the future for one or more major earthquakes along the west coast of the continental USA before it is proven that their high pressure injection has
caused people to loose their lives and damaged others property.
As for your question about the Oklahoma earthquakes that took place today:
here is what you posted.....
"First, it seems that you indicate a connection between the Oklahoma quakes and the 7.2 on the coast. Would this then mean that these recent Oklahoma

...could again be a precursser to another, larger release in the same area as before? "
Here is what I found when I checked the USGS site, it only has two earthquakes in Oklahoma now instead of the 4 they must have reported earlier.

But.... getting back to your question: "Would this then mean that these recent Oklahoma quakes today... could again be a precursser to another,
larger release in the same area as before?"
The answer to your question is.... No. These M3.2 and M3.0 earthquakes actually took place and Quaked in Oklahoma. Its when they build up pressure
and then don't quake, that is when the larger earthquakes like the M7.2 Baja California, Mexico earthquake will strike.
What this really means, is that when those two earthquakes struck they instantly released their latent energy. But if they turn into "slow
earthquakes" and don't release their energy in an instant earthquake on site, then their energy is transferred to another site in the far
As to the M7.2 Baja California, Mexico earthquake, you will notice that I stated that there was an earthquake cell somewhere near the edge of the West
side of Wichita, Kansas. That cell did not quake, it released it's energy as did the other earthquake cell down by Oklahoma City that I couldn't
pinpoint because the earthquake cell wasn't stable. When an earthquake cell starts to become unstable, then it usually doesn't quake, but instead
releases its energy to another distant area.
I have made the connection between the two areas: the area N to NE of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma is fault linked to the area of Wichita, Kansas. If
earthquake cells loose their energy in those two areas without quaking, then their energy has been transfered to the area along the West Coast of
Mexico and the West Coast of the USA as per my 22 videos that I made last year. Usually the resulting earthquake out west will be rather large, if
not a major earthquake.
So... as long as all of the earthquake cells in area of Oklahoma City loose their energy as real earthquakes, the west coast has nothing to worry
about. On the other hand if the earthquake cells in the area of Oklahoma City, loose their energy without quaking, then watch out west coast.
I'm very flattered that you have understood my information, Thanks very much westcoast.
