    Yes, they showed up on the Earthquake monitor.

    This site updates every so many minutes. For future reference. You can tell that there are a lot of injection wells in Oklahoma. When Arkansas was having their issues with quakes, they were showing up every 5 minutes or so. Funndy thing is, they banned the injection wells within a 1500 mile radius of Greenbrier, AK, and voila, no earthquakes. Youngstown, Ohio, same thing. Imagine that!!!! And, those Oklahomians still love their Senator Inhofe who is the biggest Koch brothers (you-know-what) and could really give 2 hoots to his residents in Oklahoma. So sad.
