Skip to comments.Swarm of Earthquakes in Oklahoma [past 30 days
Posted on 05/05/2014 12:17:43 PM PDT by topher
The URL shows the swarm of small earthquakes in Oklahoma. I have not heard any explanation for these.
The URL lists all 2.5+ earthquakes in the past 30 days. There is one just across the border in Kansas...
According to USGS, there are 123 Earthquakes in the past 30 days in the Oklahoma area.
These are all very small earthquakes or better termed tremors.
You have to:
(1) Set the period to 30 days.
(2) Set to zoom in on Oklahoma
(3) Click on the map to Zoom in as much as you want...
Had a dream about my Aunty Em last night.....
um... that was a tornado. and kansas.
You’re not in Kansas anymore. XD
Frackinjg! We’re all gonna DIE!
The liberals have been saying that recent earthquakes hqve happened due to fracking.
until they put in some high tech equipment, these little babies probably went unnoticed.
I know, I know...but she wound up in Oklahoma and sputtered...what the frack was that!!
Fracking is an earthquake stopper!
Fracking lubricates faults and causes them to slip slightly and more often. This decreases the chance of a large earthquake by relieving pressure on the fault.
I’m surprised the Rats haven’t stacked this on top of the minimum wage issue to rally their supporters, it’s such a load of hogwash.
Stupid. Scientists have known since the ‘60s & ‘70s that injecting fluids into the ground causes ‘earth tremors’.
That there’s even a question that fracking is causing these earthquakes is beyond me, as I’ve known since I was a kid.
The problem is that the lefty enviroweanies jump on the fracking issue and use it against the oil companies. I’m not against fracking here in any way, just stating the facts. The issue of ‘what’ they inject into the ground is a whole other issue...
Our first politically correct earthquake warning.
Yup, I see no mention of the old fault zone these seem to be coming from in the article, just a chance to blame fracking.
Nearly every year we get an article about the “swarm” of earthquakes in Oklahoma.
Yes, the regular “Panic!” story.
This year has been far, far worse though. OK has had as many earthquakes in about the first 3 months than it did all of last year, which was already alot for Oklahoma. I'm not trying to be an alarmist but it is cause for concern that this old fault zone has apparently gotten more active.
