A 4.2 magnitude earthquake just struck the Oklahoma fracking operations located in the North Central part of the state.

In the above screenshots from Google Earth, you can clearly see the nearby fracking operation , also a wind farm in the same fields as the fracking injection wells.

Clean energy generation next to dirty, earthquake causing energy extraction.

Anything over a 4.0M could cause damage to these windmills (due to their height).


This location in Oklahoma has experienced MULTIPLE large earthquakes, upwards of mid-4.0M range.  These previous 4.0M+ events led to the state of Oklahoma issuing a temporary ban on injection wells at this location.

I made a video on this banning here about a month and  a half ago (February 4 2015) :


Ironically, this event comes on the heels of a report released earlier today, calling for greater earthquake threats in Oklahoma.

Also, this large midwest earthquake follows a major solar storm which hit today (march 17 2015).

Today there was also a borderline 7.0 magnitude in the West Pacific.
