In the wee hours of the morning, North Texas was rocked by a 2.7M earthquake, the 7th since June 5th. All the quakes have been in the same heavily drilled area.

I’ll put up a map later today.

A reader gifted me with this map and additional information. The dots with API numbers show the injection wells and the other dots are earthquakes recorded within 35km around Cleburne, the quakes started in 2009.


Record of earthquakes in that area since 2009.
