It was the worst of three large quakes to strike the area over several days, and it still as ranks as the worst Oklahoma has ever experienced. Since then, hundreds more have rattled the state, racking up millions of dollars in damages and unleashing a political and financial maelstrom. Until 2008, Oklahoma typically had one or two earthquakes of magnitude 3.0 or greater per year,...

The site includes an interactive map that plots not only earthquake locations, but also the sites of more than 3,000 active wastewater-injection wells.The website coincided with a statement by the state-run Oklahoma Geological Survey that it “considers it very likely” that...

    Folks, after South Park, Battlestar Gallactica is the closest mirror to current society and political topics of all current TV shows. Great acting, great writing, fair and balanced. Tonight, the show returns, with the colonists under control of the Cylons, while Adama and the fleet who fled before the Cylon invasion, ponder whether or not to attempt a rescue mission. Its good stuff! Dont miss it. 7pm Central time.
