4/16/2013 — Oklahoma 4.3M earthquake and swarm — inside fracking operation

Yet another Oklahoma induced seismic event.

An injection well / fracking earthquake swarm — happening inside a working operation embedded in a residential setting.

Beginning with a 4.3M quake, followed by subsequent 3.0M, 2.0M, and 1.0M earthquakes in the region (within miles of each other)… I would expect to see several more earthquakes here before all is said and done.
