Hi deadeyedick, I live in NW Louisiana area of Shreveport. There was a 4.9 earthquake around the same area of Texas in late summer or early fall of
2012. Folks here in this area actually felt that one. I felt it here also. This most recent quake in NE Texas was listed as a 4.1 at usgs but was
listed as a 4.5 at RSOE-edis. I didn't notice this latest one.
Fracking does occur in that area...in many parts of Texas and Louisiana actually. I truly believe that the fracking process can/does cause seismic
activity. I have had 2 properties in Louisiana where fracking took place and had to leave the area. When they drill and introduce water into the
ground at high pressure and break into the shale, all of that has an affect on the ground, air, and water. They often slant drill. I can remember
feeling the house shake/vibrate from these procedures. During fracking, one can "feel" the power being exerted during the process. Explosions are
They are not supposed to drill within 500 ft. of homes but it seemed to me, they don't follow the rules very well. I could see wells from all 4 sides
of my property and more. When one witnesses the "flames" expelled from the top of the wells, that is powerful chemicals being released. Powerful
chemicals are used in the fracking...some are "secret formula" but personal research reveals some nasties such as Americinum, DU, and much more.
I believe there is trouble ahead for Bayou Corne because of the fracking done in that part of Louisiana...the salt dome collapsing and such tends to
give evidence that the procedure does affect the ground and could very well cause siesmic events. I believe local seismic monitoring has been
recording such in that area...an uptick of same and there is concern that more events may be in the future...perhaps more powerful and destructive.
Will see. The fracking process is powerful, I can personally attest to that. Many areas throughout the country/world where fracking is taking place
seem to be having more seismic activity...even places that usually did not seem to be prone to such before. Thanx for listening.
