Earthquakes at fracking locations — this has been an ongoing (and building) problem for the pumping / injection / fracking operations to the south, specifically in Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Texas… also to the West at the Border of Colorado and New Mexico.

This movement in Kansas is indeed out of the ordinary.  With this movement occurring, we need to be aware of the possibility of further movement in the midwest in the near term.  Possibly at OTHER fracking / injection well operations.
What is causing the movement?
Simply put, excessive craton movement due to pressure from the Pacific plate. See my most recent earthquake update for a full overview :
UPDATE : 137am CT 9/15/2013Before I could publish this article, indeed ANOTHER earthquake just struck central Oklahoma at a fracking operation (just to the south of the previous earthquake in Kansas).
