Windows 7: Oklahoma Earthquake?

I think after a moderate quake, they can go on for a year or so. After a major quake, I believe it can be decades. Obviously it will differ depending on what type of fault it is, and geology, etc. A Guy

Ahhh...I see someone has developed a good grasp of seismics . Indeed it much better to have smaller ones, than have the energy released in one go - a principle exploited succesfully in underground mining support.

It has now been 4 weeks, and there are still a few small quakes in this area. While those still happening are relatively quite small, I have been wondering how big a quake would have to be to be felt living atop the epicenter of the tremors? Only 2 of the early quakes were felt where I live, but since I'm as far away as I am, I'm sure that the people living in that area felt a lot more of them. I bet it is unsettling to feel the ground shake every day for a month.

The people who live in The Geysers area of Northers California could probably tell you.

Earthquake in Northern California
I was awoken by a significant earthquake at 3:20AM this morning. It was a pretty good rolling, then a few strong jolts, maybe 15 seconds. No damage here, just an exciting ride.
