Damn, that site took over chrome on my phone pretty fierce. (and rendered so horribly I couldn't get most of the text of the article)

Nice subby, my Mom is actually from Oshkosh and grew up on the street of the family who started that company.

They never have fun earthquakes and stuff in places that rhyme with "Garanimals."

well played subby, well played. In all seriousness, this might be a prelude to more deep quakes as the plates continue on their mission of crushing each other. What does it mean ? I dont know, but I suspect the damn Russkies have their time and weather machine set to eleventy.

seismologists don't understand how massive earthquakes can happen at such depths.

If I remember correctly, the tectonic plates of past eras get folded over and pushed into the mantle by superceding plates (there is no point in the ocean that is older than 180-220 million years old so they do this frequently), and they're still there, like layer cake, and they're still getting squeezed and pushed around by heat and pressure. Anything that moves within the Earth -- doesn't matter where or how far -- is going to cause an earthquake.

Headline made me giggle. I grew up in Osh Kosh Bgosh too, especially the overalls.

OK, that looks about like what Cthulhu is going to look like just before he awakes from his eternal slumber...

Um... isn't the core of earth molten?  Do tectonic plates not melt?

What is your reason for thinking this way?

FTA: One possibility is that water or liquid carbon dioxide somehow seeped into the crack to lubricate it, thereby allowing the two slabs of rock to slide past each other more quickly.

Awwwwww, yeaaaah.

Heh. As a long time Oshkosh resident, I got a kick.

Worth mentioning, my grandfather owned 5 NAPA stores in WI, one in Oshkosh of course, and my Uncle has worked for the EAA-filming videos. Haven't been there in a while, hopefully will head back to visit my cousins next summer. Family has an old cottage on lake Winnebago. I love Oshkosh.

You should come back for a visit.  There has a been a lot of improvement along the Fox river.  Besides the EAA, the city hosts 2 huge music fests (one country, one rock) and a weekly music concert along the river.

Because it was scientifically verified?
