here is the fault line i think has something to do with it.. the strange thing is the EQs stop almost right at the kansas boarder. the nemaha ridge or the humbolt fault zone.

i dont think the problem is this one EQ ..its with the thousands of 2.0 and larger that have been escalating in the central/north central area over the last eight years and it seems they are gradually getting larger
i agree with the hope it is fracking because i understand the bad things that could happen . my fear is it will be put off on fracking and when people hear about it they will just go the the fracking thing and not worry much about a "big one" until it happens.
im looking for all the data i can on locations of frack sites vs the EQ sites atm and will post again when i find more info
What i am hinting at is what if there is something deep that has been overlooked by past geological surveys? The continental divide was once in oklahoma. mostly eroded away and buried except as hilltops, and granite nubs a branch of the apalachians higher than the himalayas was here before the rockies were even born. buried deep here and occasionally brought up in oil well tailings are gold and gems from those mountains buried alluvial fans and fossil rivers and watersheds.
The wichitas, arbuckles, kiamichis and outichitas and other hills and ranges are remnants of a long eroded but humongous mountain range that something surely caused to poke up.
