2.7M Earthquake in North Texas this morning.

Event Page

In this map you can see the extent of development in the area. For those who insist these quakes are only caused by injection wells, I have marked the nearest injection well using a 1/2 mile circle. The epicenter is marked with a black arrow.

For more information about earthquakes caused by fracking click HERE and scroll down. To track the fracking earthquakes in the past few years, click HERE.

UPDATE: The map above was made using the Texas Railroad Commission GIS map. I put in the coordinates of the epicenter and, of course, it’s a little bit off the mark. Sometimes using coordinates on their map will take you WAY off the mark.

Thank you to a reader for these more accurate maps.

 

Injection wells from Google:

Some when Texas Representative Dumbshit propose H.B. ILUVDRILLING to keep people from taking pictures of drilling sites will they place tin foil hats over the drlling and injections well sites so Google can’t peek?

That made me laugh so hard. I need a photoshop of well sites with tin foil hats.

Now, Oklahoma has one right near fracking wells:

Literally right on top of the Earthquake epicenter — we have multiple injection / frack wells within less than 1/4 of a mile:
