After well over a month of “silence” a new earthquake has struck in metropolitan downtown Dallas Texas.
The epicenter of the earthquake is again VERY close to a gas / fracking well. The nearest drill point is located just a few hundred feet away.
This movement was EXPECTED to occur, and was forecast to take place this week.
The forecast calling for movement along the South (midwestern) edge of the craton was issued a day ago, on July 17, 2015.
Specifically talking about Oklahoma, Kansas, and the Southern United States fracking operations at approximately 31 minutes into this video below.
