Default Earthquakes!

Last night 2 earthquakes rattled Dallas, TX. Quakes were 3.4 and 3.1

http://www.nbcdfw.com/news/local/Earthquake-Shakes-North-Texas-171963191.html

Two earthquakes rattled North Texas within 10 minutes late Saturday night.

The U.S. Geological Survey confirms a magnitude 3.4 earthquake occured at 11:05:01 p.m. The USGS listed the epicenter at 32.847N, 96.956W. That's just southwest of Las Colinas Country Club near North McArthur Blvd. and West Rochelle Road. It was southeast of DFW International Airport.

The second earthquake was a magnitude 3.1. It happened at 11:09:03 p.m. The USGS listed the epicenter at 32.768N, 96.915W. That location is Loop 12 Walton Walker Blvd., just north of Interstate 30 in far West Dallas. It is northwest of the city of Cockrell Hill.

I think it's funny that everyone starts freaking out about these little quakes we're having around here.
With all of the drilling for natural gas over the last 8-10 years,you'd think that they'd figure out it (Earthquakes) are happening because we are pumping millions of gallons of water back down into the ground everyday from the production of natural gas.
Water makes things shift around down there.It has to go somewhere when it's pumped back into a 14,000 ft hole in the ground.
