Irving earthquakes rattling homes and nerves
From an Irving resident:
Irving has had 3 frackquakes in the past 24hrs with lots of rumbles and small jolts. Our houses are in constant motion on days like this. Last night it felt like I was in a bumper car, oh no, that was my house?
Many reports came in the afternoon that the 2.8M was by far the strongest frackquake felt yet. The largest was a 3.6M on Jan. 6, 2015 the day we had 12 frackquakes in a 24 hr period. Hmmmm, why did the 2.8M feel so much stronger? Is it the way the plates are shifting or the fact that they are so close to the surface the magnitudes feel different each time? The 2.8M yesterday was closer to the surface than most at only 4KM deep and the largest 3.6M in Jan. was 6km deep. There have been hundreds of quakes felt in NE Irving over the past year.
Where is our Mayor? Too busy traveling around the country touting her Sharia Law phobia. Why does she not go to bat for us like Linda Stokes of Reno did for her city to get the injection wells shut down? We have only one injection well at DFW airport.
Interesting that last year the same thing happened over the holidays. The week of the holidays no frackquakes. Then we get pounded the week after Thanksgiving. Over Christmas and New Years no events last year. On Jan.6 when everyone went back to work the day before. Yep, you guessed it. Assaulted by 12 quakes in one day!
This is criminal to have our livelihoods, safety and homes at risk.

This map from a peer-reviewed study in 2010 shows the injection wells on the DFW Airport. The well at the south end was closed very quickly after a flurry of frackquakes. After closing it the frackquakes immediately ceased.
Why hasn’t the injection well at the north end of the airport been shut down?
