Earlier today (April 2, 2015) I issued a full website post, and a separate video covering the earthquake activity happening in the Midwest United States – including the 4.0 magnitude which struck the New Madrid Seismic Zone (NMSZ) early this morning.

Watch the video update and forecast here:

Specifically covered Texas, and their fracking earthquake unrest on this post here:


Ironic that the Texas Railroad Commission (TRC) , those tasked with approval of the fracking / oil / gas operations in the state, actually still DENY fracking induces earthquake activity.  Even up until the past few months, denying hydraulic fracturing leads to noteworthy earthquakes.

Even though the USGS has already determined fracking does induce seismicity, the Texas officials are in denial for some rea$on , or another.

Watch the above video for a forecast of areas to watch, along with expected earthquake magnitudes at each location over the coming week.
