4/03/2015 — Noteworthy 4.0 Magnitude (3.7 revised) Fracking Earthquake strikes Oklahoma

A noteworthy 4.0 magnitude earthquake ( 3.7 revised ) has struck the Oklahoma fracking operations located in the North Central portion of the state, near the Oklahoma / Kansas border.

Also, a 2.9 magnitude has just struck directly at the Kansas border , due North of this larger 4.0 (3.7M).

Just as expected, a followup earthquake has struck DIRECTLY on the Kansas / Oklahoma border:

This earthquake in Oklahoma comes on the heels of new movement beginning to show near Yellowstone earlier today, as well as multiple earthquakes in Dallas Texas at the fracking operation located in the downtown metropolitan area of the city.

In addition to this new larger 4.0M earthquake in Oklahoma, there was a 4.0 magnitude (3.7M revised) along the New Madrid Seismic Zone in Missouri, and a 4.0 magnitude at the dormant Pisgah Volcano crater complex located East of Los Angeles California.  All this in just one weeks time.

In my most recent earthquake forecast (issued April 2 2015), the fracking operations were a specific topic I covered in depth.

See the video report here: (talk about Kansas / Oklahoma border at about 11min 30sec into this video)

850pm CDT.. we’re seeing earthquakes bounce back and forth over the course of MINUTES.
