I just experienced a 4.0 earth event in OK @ 4:20 AM CST

I don't know for certain, it's too soon to tell. However, several years ago we had several 4.0 + events & this was similar.

I have a wonderful 4 post bed & it feels like someone has grabbed the bed post & started shaking it.

We'll see ...

2. Three earthquakes shook up Oklahoma Friday

The first was a 3.4 magnitude earthquake that struck at approximately 4:57 p.m. Its epicenter was located 17 miles northwest of Fairview, 38 miles east of Woodward, and 45 miles west of Enid. It was only about a mile deep.

The second, also a 3.4 magnitude quake, struck at approximately 7:20 p.m. Its epicenter was located four miles west of Medford, 27 miles north of Enid, and 41 miles west of Ponca City. It was also about a mile deep.

The third, a 3.1 magnitude quake, struck at approximately 10:08 p.m. Its epicenter was located six miles northwest of Perry, 24 miles northwest of Stillwater, and 27 miles east of Enid.

No injuries or damages have been reported at this time.

3. Well, I'm absolutely sure it has nothing to do with fracking.

4. My first thought was fracking

Been getting a lot in my locale as well - a region without a history of seismic activity on the scale seen since fracking began.

6. Earthquakes were happening long before fracking

9. Truly stunning logic

So, if I live in a small town where there has never been a murder I can now kill someone because people in that town were dying due to entirely natural causes. Therefore, I'm innocent of murder.

Or we can follow the evidence. So while it's not the fracking itself, it is the injection of wastewater from fracking into the earth that is causing the earthquakes. So, yes, it's due to fracking. No fracking, no earthquake.

11. If an earthquake causes no injuries or property damage, is it a problem?

12. That's entirely up to the people affected, isn't it?

I'm not the one having to put up with it. If they say its a problem, I'll back them. If they say it doesn't bother them, then I've got no problem.

However, should this practice cause a larger, more destructive earthquake then we all have to reassess the situation.

13. We all know fracking can't cause earthquakes.

Just like we know it can't contaminate the ground water. Until we find out it can. Who pays for destroying the usability of the ground water when we find out it does? the tax payer? Or the people that have to find a different water supply? Or the people doing the fracking?

My guess would be that the people doing the fracking are special corporations with limited assets and a Million dollar insurance policy. Thus eliminating any liability of the oil/gas companies.

So it is going to either be #1 or #2.

5. Oh, good. what fun!

I've been aware of 3 or 4 very small earthquakes in different places I've lived -- Missouri, Georgia. I'm sure they would be terrifying if big, but the small ones are just kinda interesting to me.

I'm sure you can thank your local frackers. I sure hope none of them wake up the New Madrid fault along the Mississippi. Probably won't -- it's a whole state away. But still, it's a mother, which is why it always worries me.

10. Cool. Around here a 4.0 doesn't rate getting out of bed or turning the lights on, unless...

...it happens right under you.

14. Isn't fracking causing those earthquakes? I have not felt one out here in L.A. in such a long time

 

We are definitely due for a major shaker sooner rather than later....our last one was in 1994!!!! We're WAY past due for some stress relief!!
