Series Of Oklahoma Earthquakes A Sign That The Next Big One May Happen Sooner Than Expected? [DETAILS HERE]

There is another Oklahoma Earthquake recorded Tuesday at 8:15pm. The series of Oklahoma Earthquake may be a sign of the next big one happening sooner than expected.

According to Tulsa World, the Oklahoma Earthquake happened 12 miles northwest of Medford on Tuesday. The recent Oklahoma Earthquake measured Intensity 3.7 on the Richter scale.

This Oklahoma Earthquake is the second strongest tremor recorded following the Intensity 5 that happened near the city of Cushing. This earthquake believed to have caused some minor damages in the crude oil storage pipelines.

The Oklahoma Earthquake may be considered as a warning that the next big one may happen soon. This has been happening in Oklahoma, away from the US Pacific Coast which is part of the Pacific Ring of Fire. Earthquakes happening in Middle America is uncommon however it is happening more often than usual.

As reported by IB Times, the Pacific Ring of Fire consists of countries surrounding the entire Pacific Ocean coast. Countries such as Japan, Philippines, Indonesia, US West Coast down to Chile belong to this part which is known to produce the biggest earthquakes in history.

There have been numerous disastrous earthquakes particularly in San Francisco and Los Angeles as it is also near the San Andreas Fault which is one of the most active fault lines. The Oklahoma Earthquake as earlier reported is far from the fault line so it is considerably weaker than that of produced near it.

The biggest question is when is the next "Big One," something that may be twice or thrice as strong as that of the Oklahoma Earthquake? There is no exact apparatus to measure and predict the next big earthquake.

The Oklahoma Earthquake is a reminder to be prepared at all times. It doesn't matter which part of the world. Preparedness is the key.

It is also important to note that countries in the Pacific Ring of Fire and the Anatolian Fault line that passes through Turkey and other Middle Eastern countries are considered most vulnerable. The earthquakes in the Anatolian Fault line have also resulted in mass destruction and claimed a lot of lives.

The next big earthquake may be as strong as Intensity 9 which happened in Japan back in 2011, Chile in 2010 and Indonesia back in 2004. This is literally double the strength compared to the Oklahoma Earthquake which measured Intensity 5.
