How devastating and news worthy.


Real game changer here.



Why should anyone care about this weak quake?


Because some people may want to hear about it. It may not be "earth shaking" news but its something to talk about if you live in that area.

Yes and there's this as well that's being talked about:

The largest recorded earthquake in Oklahoma history was likely triggered by the injection of wastewater from oil production into wells deep beneath the earth, according to a study published Tuesday in the scientific journal Geology. The magnitude 5.7 earthquake, which struck in 2011 near Prague in central Oklahoma, is the largest and most recent of a number of quakes scientists have tied to wastewater injection from oil and natural gas production, raising new concerns about the practice.

It's very interesting stuff as far as geology goes. Again hopefully it calms down.

Woke up to the one around 2:00 a.m. My wall art was clanging back and forth and my house felt like it was going up and down. Only one of my dogs sleeps on my bed. Woke up with three on my bed this morning.

I was watching this go down last night. I have a hunch that these quakes are due to the continued use of fracking by the oil and gas industry in Oklahoma.

Just sayin'...

I logged on just to mention that story, it was released last month I believe, so thank you for bringing it up in this thread.

From my understanding we get about 200 small earthquakes a year, on average, in Oklahoma. It's very interesting to me how the 5.7 was linked to drilling and not fracking.

I live in the city and I didn't feel any of these quakes either but I am grateful for the thread. 5 quakes, within a 3 1/2 hour _..in Oklahoma, is pretty newsworthy.

Barely noticed 2 of them.

I did feel the 2011 5.7, that was a pretty good shake.

They have discovered some new (and mostly shallow) fault lines around here. They have become active when in the past they were not. I doubt it's due to fracking....possible, but most of the area it is coming from isn't as petrol active as other parts of the state.

I just noticed that another one happened about 40 minuets ago. We didn't feel it out in eastern OK like the mag 5 that happened about a year ago, but we do have family in the OKC area and are keeping an eye on it. Thanks OP for posting this thread.

No, but I live and work on the West/NorthWest side of OKC and all this is east of the city. So it's not as noticable where I am than to people I know that are on the east sides.

It's not good situation there ..

Oklahoma geological survey


I wanted to share this link for anyone interested.

I agree that is strange but it is Oklahoma. We can get everything here.

Swarms like this usually end with a larger quake. I'm pretty confident this isn't over yet. I've asked all my friends here to stay alert, not to worry and to be careful.

as to fracking, how r they handling the waste water?? if they re-inject it to get rid of it then that does cause quakes. provenin china /japan. usa will never admit it here.the fracking releases pressure the re-inject adds it somewheres else. today aint a good day for shakes anywheres.could get worse fast.

Like I was saying last night. We have had a few here (vancouver island) When we get one I make sure everything is half-assed secure and prop a stack of empty cans up where I`ll be able to hear them topple over if the big one hits in the middle of the night. Every second counts when things get rockin and rollin.
