Just as we were expecting to see, a renewed swarm of earthquakes has now occurred in North Central Oklahoma near the Kansas border.
The largest earthquake, measuring M4.0 , occurred just 1,000 FEET away from the nearest fracking injection well.
Renewed craton pressure , coming from the West / Northwest United States, as well as pressure coming from Central America.. has caused new movement across the whole of the North American Craton.
Overall, this renewed pressure was forecast to cause new activity across the United States. The forecast was issued on August 8th, now 6 days later, the movement has struck the areas which were warned.
Oklahoma was warned for new M4.0 activity to occur in the forecast. See the earthquake forecast video here:
