6th Earthquake in 4 days reported in Oklahoma

The U.S. Geological Survey says a 3.2 magnitude quake struck just before 6 a.m. Sunday about 27 miles northeast of Oklahoma City. The Logan County Sheriff's Office says no damage was reported

On Saturday, a 2.4 magnitude tremor was recorded at about 7 a.m. about 50 miles northeast of Oklahoma City near Sparks.

Sunday's earthquake is the sixth in the area since Thursday, when a 3.7 magnitude quake was recorded near Prague. Three more were recorded Friday.

A 5.6 magnitude quake, the strongest ever recorded in Oklahoma, shook the state Nov. 5. That quake damaged dozens of homes, buckled a highway and caused other damage.

What an amazing coincidence. This has NOTHING to do with fracking. The Big Oil geologists and the university geologists the frackers have given fat grants to are united in claiming this.

Do NOT listen to those stupid Brits calling for fracking ban for fear of earthquakes.

1. Brit poll on fracking: 68.3% vote to ban it.
Should fracking be banned in the UK?

A report has concluded that the controversial gas extraction method of fracking was 'probably' to blame for two earthquake tremors near Blackpool. As protesters call for its banning, do you agree with them?
