6/24/2013 — Oklahoma 3.0M Earthquake — Inside large fracking operation / injection well cluster

South Central Oklahoma is now showing seismic activity.  June 24, 2013 , a 3.0 magnitude struck inside a different frack / injection / pumping operation.

Over the past several months, we’ve seen multiple moderate earthquakes occur to the north, near Oklahoma City, inside a very large fracking operation just outside of the downtown metropolitan area of OKC.

Now the movement is spreading southeast — producing this earthquake today (3.0M near Coalgate, OK).
