2/07/2015 — ANOTHER 4.0M earthquake strikes Oklahoma — fracking quakes out of control

It should now be obvious to even the casual observer that there is an out of control seismic “situation” taking place in the areas which have fracking operations.

Another near 4.0M event (3.9M revised)  has struck central Oklahoma. This makes over 13 different 4.0M+ earthquakes (ranging from 3.8 – 4.4) over the past 2 weeks.

Nearest well is UNDER 1 MILE away, and appears to be older (rusted out), possibly neglected.

This past week (first week of February 2015) the Oklahoma government authority which oversees these fracking injection wells decided to put a STOP order on the fracking operations located near the previous epicenter where the flurry of 4.0M+ earthquakes occurred last week.

Video report on the flurry of 4.0M+ earthquakes in Oklahoma which led to this new fracking stop order near the Kansas border:

On top of the recent swarms of mid-4.0 magnitude earthquakes in Oklahoma, in the recent past we’ve seen multiple large earthquakes strike fracking operations across Colorado, Kansas, Texas, Arkansas, and Ohio (just to name a few states who have had seismic increases due to this drilling / oil pumping / gas extraction process).

This past earthquake activity, reaching back through 2011, lead to a series of mid 5.0M+ earthquakes across Colorado, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Virginia (5.9M hit after the other states moved).
