Quake Rattles Central Oklahoma



The same week that Oklahoma regulators announced new earthquake rules stemming from growing fracking operations in the state’s two big oil plays, the STACK and the SCOOP, central Oklahoma experienced a 3.2 magnitude quake Thursday morning.

The U.S. Geological Survey recorded the earthquake at 8:21 a.m. with an epicenter about 4 miles east-northeast of Edmond. It had a recorded depth of less than 4 miles. So far, no significant damages have been reported.

Technically, the quake did not occur in the targeted SCOOP and STACK zones since they are located west of where the epicenter was located.
