Another one in Snyder Texas. I think this was was caused by the Big Gas Mafia trying to spin the EPA’s finding that fracking has contaminated drinking water.

Who’s drilling in that area? How close to epicenter of quake?
Snyder has had quite a few earthquakes in the past year. One was a 4.4M. I posted about the 4.4M quake here: http://www.texassharon.com/2011/09/12/4-4-fracking-earthquake-in-snyder-texas/ and it has a link to a previous post that includes a map. You can also do search on my blog for Snyder. I haven’t posted about every Snyder quake though. I can’t keep up.
