Last month, on May 31st, a 3.4M earthquake struck at this very same fracking operation, also happening around the same time as the large landslide in Western Colorado.

Each time we see heavy movement to the Northwest of Colorado along the edge of the Craton (Yellowstone, British Columbia, and Alaska), we see movement follow up at the fracking operations, and volcanic chambers along the edge of the craton (Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, Nevada, California, Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, and Arkansas).
The areas which normally show movement along the craton edge AFTER heavy pressure is placed on the plate from the Pacific are weak points at places such as fracking / injection / drilling operations, and natural volcanic areas with somewhat shallow magma chambers.
The craton (plate) is being displaced due to pressure coming from the Northwest. The subduction process apparently does NOT release the pressure from the Pacific plate when the pressure is coming upon the North American craton from an “angle”.
The pressure transfer “spills” or “flows” down the edge of the craton from the NW, causing displacement (fracturing) at deep well operations, and dormant volcanic tube / chamber locations.
After such heavy movement in Alaska, I would expect movement at (or around) Yellowstone, and British Columbia fairly soon. Salton Sea normally shows swarm activity, with a few heavier earthquakes near Los Angeles after these types of Pacific unrest events.
Don’t rule out Japan to the Philippines on the other side of the Pacific plate unrest in Alaska.
