In addition to this Western US fracking / oil well earthquake, , and the undersea volcanic earthquake off the shores of Oregon, an event struck in South Utah at the Markagunt Volcanic Plateau just a few days ago (May 31, 2015).

All signs of greater West coast / Western United States seismic unrest — still building in the region.
