I am from and my mom (and ATS reader) lives in Hazard Ky, which is only about 25 miles west of Whitesburg Kentucky. This quake is suppose to be west
of Whitesburg, so in the morning I will call her and report back with more information. For now, those who are curious, look up the WYMT television
station which is in Hazard, Ky. They have streaming news and are decent with their website for a small station.
The area is saturated with shaft and strip mining. This was due to happen with the area being unstable. I think it's ironic that on my Facebook I
have been having to read all the anti-Obama posts from people I grew up with cause he is "anti coal". Now you have a major quake, for that area,
which in my opinion could have something to do with mining.
Also, for those who might remember, this was the exact same area that had the alleged meteorite/UFO crash a few months back. Not saying there is a
correlation, but two weird events in this area not normal in such a short time period.
