A sizable 4.2 magnitude (4.1 M revised) earthquake occurred in North Central Oklahoma at another fracking operation.
This area showed excessive seismic movement 2 months ago, which led to the injection wells in this area to be SHUT DOWN.
Literally a series of greater than 4.0M earthquakes occurred back to back over a few weeks time in this same location, which led the government of Oklahoma to temporarily ban the injection processes at these wells.
Here is the video I made from February talking about the shutdown, and the swarm of 4.0M+ earthquakes.

An uptick in activity is certainly expected after yesterdays X2.2 solar flare, which sent a blast of particles out on the Earth facing side of the Sun. Predicted to be giving our planet a “glancing blow”, this incoming blast of particles always causes increased seismic unrest.
