For all we or they know, these quakes in OK for example might just be small, intraplate faults responding to the tremendous forces the entire North American plate is under. The plate is moving continuously, and that is naturally going to cause faults on the interior to respond sooner or later.
The same could be the case for Virginia, Arkansas, and Utah, too.
