4/17/2015 — ANOTHER Rare Colorado Earthquake at Oil / Fracking operation !

Yesterday, April 16 2015, a very rare earthquake occurred in Northwest Colorado at an oil / gas fracking operation.

Yesterdays movement was odd to see in itself — move forward 24 hours to April 17 2015, and we now see a GREATER magnitude earthquake strike at the same fracking location in Rangely, CO.

This time the event was a 2.8 Magnitude located directly above a large pumping operation:

At this point it should be obvious to even the casual observer that things are picking up seismically speaking, and the need for careful attention around these operations is self evident.

California officials still in denial about fracking earthquakes, luckily the main stream media is catching on to the facts that the “officials” are ignoring deliberately.

Notice the reporter mentions Colorado in this news from CNBC  issued earlier this week.
