Here's a real nice Earthquake page.  An example shows quakes for my state Oklahoma:  http://earthquaketrack.com/p/united-states/oklahoma/recent

Also the 2nd home page using modified AltDashboard 6.95 at http://stillwaterweather.com/2ndhome.php

It's easy to tell where the fracking is on any earthquake map.  Especially OK and AR and OH

Saturday's swarm of earthquakes made me kinda worried something is trying to build up to a big one the media can't ignore.  I haven't been feeling any.  The one tonight near Choctaw registered 3.3.   This page shows a couple of seismographs of a recent one:  http://www.weatherspotlight.com/quakes.html  I tend to doubt that fracking is causing them since Texas hasn't been having them as much.

I was wondering exactly the same thing about the western coastal faults!!!
If the left coast falls in, will it swamp Hawaii????

There's more fracking going on in North Dakota than any other place in the country.  And yet, no quakes in the past year.  Nothing even near being called a swarm at that.

Basically the western third of the state, more focused on the NW quarter should have all kinds of quakes if fracking was a cause.  At least in our area...

Here's another cool earthquake page with numerous comments about the recent earthquakes. http://earthquake-report.com/2013/11/02/minor-earthquake-edmond-oklahoma-on-november-2-2013/ We who have earthquake pages on our sites need an update to keep up.

Last month in Oklahoma,  it was decided a disposal well site had to be shutdown, because it was associated with earthquakes.  I don't believe those type wells are directly associated with fracking:  http://stateimpact.npr.org/oklahoma/2013/10/03/disposal-well-shutdown-after-swarm-of-earthquakes-in-south-central-oklahoma/.

For a look back to the big one, 5.6, from two years ago, here is a frantic video of it as it happened.  It didn't shake that bad at my house, but then I was around 50 mi. from the epicenter. I guess the video is for real:  http://ulocal.koco.com/_Earthquake-in-Edmond-2011/video/1656558/63269.html
