Just as we were expecting, due to activity showing along the West coast of the United States 2 days ago, an earthquake has now struck Southern Colorado at the fracking operations near Trinidad.

Western craton pressure produced a 2.9 magnitude earthquake in Southern Colorado (Trinidad) directly below a fracking operation exactly on schedule.

This event was forecast to occur in the earthquake forecast issued on April 24, 2015.  Calling for moderate movement to strike Southern Colorado within 3-5 days.   Now on day 3 of the forecast the area is hit.
