For comments on the M3.3 frackquake in Irving 11/22/14 click HERE.
Update: I see three notices of earthquakes. One 2.1M, one 2.8M and this 2.7M. I’m not sure if there were actually 3 quakes last night or if one is a correction. I will try to sort it all out and get back to you.
Update 2: None of the earthquake notices are corrections, all are preliminary. I bet people in that area will need extra coffee today. What a night that must have been.
There was an were three earthquake after midnight in the same area. By my count that makes 9 11 for this same area since June 5th. I saw some tweets last week about a quake that “rattled the china” but I found nothing on the USGS site to confirm that.
Correction: see the comments for better information from a resident in the area. The USGS is whacked!

From State Impact: More on the Science Linking Fracking Disposal Wells to Earthquakes. Another State Impact article has some nice maps of the area.
Again, I urge you: Gas Patch residents who live in zones of extraction should routinely document the condition of their foundations and walls. This documentation may be important one day for a class action suit like the one in Arkansas.
