Coyle shaken again by another earthquake

The latest earthquake to rattle northern Oklahoma was recorded late Wednesday night near Coyle.

The 3.1 magnitude quake was the second to shake residents of the small town in Logan county this week. It struck around 10:45 p.m. with an epicenter only 0.2 mile northeast of the town.

Scientists continue to blame oil and gas drilling activity and the extensive development of wastewater injection wells for the earthquakes. However, Corporation Commission action to restrict the use of the injection wells has lessened the number of earthquakes.

The U.S. Geological Survey indicated the epicenter was also about 3 miles deep.
