On USGS i just saw it post as a 5.0, 1 minute later, downgraded to 3.8

This is not an uncommon practice for the USGS. They'll post the data from an initial reading, then pass it through a couple more computers for analysis and comparison from other instruments and then revise. Generally this means it'll go lower, though rarely it'll be an upward revision.

And if an 8.9 hits Oklahoma of all places we're in serious trouble. Probably kiss the Oogalala (or however it's spelled) aquifer good bye and you'd be having devastated areas from the Gulf all the way up into the Dakotas due to the geological makeup of the area.

A while back when the 4.7 hit down there we actually felt it here where I live and I'm pretty far away. Monitored the waves as they came in on a seismograph one of the school's hosts. Was pretty neat, but scary when you think about how much more powerful an 8.9 would be compared to that 4.7.

I'm familiar with the downgrades and even lack of reporting. : )

I just wasn't aware that one of these recent OK quakes initially registered as a 5.0.


What's this talk about an 8.9??
