Four days ago, on March 12, 2015, a noteworthy 4.2 magnitude earthquake struck just South of this Kansas location, near the Oklahoma border.


It is not a coincidence that we now see a 3.5M strike just North in Kansas.  Most certainly this movement in Kansas is due to this past weeks 4.2M in Oklahoma (at the fracking operations there).
