And it’s not stopping. The quakes in the state have been making news lately, especially within the last few days.
And now just this morning, New Years day, another shake has hit the state. This one a 4.2..
According the U.S. Geological Survey’s website, the quake happened at 5:39 a.m. in an area 3 miles northeast of Edmond and 16 miles north-northeast of Oklahoma City.
There were no immediate reports of injury or damage.
There used to be a few dozen quakes in the state prior to 2012. After fracking took hold, there have been 800 in 2015. 800..
And surely more in 2016 to go.
Not that fracking would EVER do such things…. (Remember, at one time when those against fracking said earthquakes would be a danger, they were called kooks and loons.) Who’s kooky now.
