We had another earthquake this morning at a little after 2:00am. There wasn’t much to it, rattled the house for a few seconds. Nothing was broken. But seriously! Two earthquakes in Oklahoma in my lifetime? The first one was sort of interesting; the second one has me thinking, if we can have little ones we could maybe have a big one someday.
I know every region has some kind of natural disaster that people have to worry about. Here we have tornadoes, hail, flash floods, drought, grass fires, extreme heat, extreme cold, and ice storms. Adding earthquakes to that list is just a bit much don’t you think?
UPDATE: We had another one Saturday night! Here’s a local news article about the quakes. To answer the question in the comments, a University of Tulsa geologist says that it was not caused by fracking. I do not know if this geologist has any connection with the oil industry but his explanation sounds plausible enough.
