11/4/2013 — Fracking Earthquake SWARM in Central Oklahoma

Over the past 7 days, we’ve seen a large increase in movement across the South to Northwest edge of the North American Craton.

The transferred pressure (coming from the WEST), is having a ‘spillover’ effect, cascading small to moderate earthquakes across the defined edge of the North American plate.

Oklahoma, already a weak spot, now further weakened by literally thousands of deep injection / extraction wells, which penetrate the cratons edge — attempting to extract natural gas from the shale deposits, also DISPOSING of waste water via old oil wells.   Add in a bit of carbon capture into the mix as well, all combining to form a “perfect geo-seismic storm”.

We’ve seen this activity before, in Oklahoma, Arkansas, Colorado, Illinois, and Texas.

First, we see single, moderate earthquakes in the 3.0M to 4.0M range occur at the fracking operations in OK, and AR.  Then, following the moderate movement, we usually see a series of individual smaller 2.0M quakes, subsequently followed by a swarm as we’re seeing now.  Ultimately, following the frack quake swarms, we usually see a few borderline 5.0M events occur anywhere along the edge of the plate, from the East coast through the south-midwest (OK and AR), all the way Northwest .

Over the past several months, Yellowstone has jumped into the Craton Edge earthquake mix.  Showing mid 4.0M activity across Idaho, and Wyoming (again, following midwest fracking earthquake swarms).

  1. Greetings, Thank you for your efforts. This is a particularly concise, well thought, and presented article. I was fascinated to see the lower right hand map having the northeastern event upon it. On occasion, I have felt small rumbles over the years that I have lived in NY, (Upstate) Canada, and off of MA. On the 29th October, 2013 there was a HAARP ring event which If I had the Tech I would have made an image that is just as you have created, encompassing Maine, New Brunswick, Quebec, and the northeastern part of New Hampshire. Granted this is not from the same time line but it is centered exactly where the recent event registered. Within 24 hours, weather events began first to echo the rings presence, followed by intensified weather over the next 36 plus hours. There not have been a tornado or earthquake but it was quite clear that there was an action reaction relationship. Best in life to you and yours, That Which IS aid you in your continued, needed, efforts. o… 4th November 2013 10:50 AM – EDT
    P.S. I am posting it, as is, with your header and thus full credit, on one of the two social sites I use. You, I am sure know the recently acquired by Yahoo site to which I am speaking from past notations… As you say “much love”…
