The Largest Manmade Earthquake in History

It’s now official. Seismologists have just announced that Saturday’s earthquake was the strongest ever felt in Oklahoma. The 5.6-magnitude quake struck early Saturday morning, rattling Pawnee, Oklahoma and the surrounding area. If this weekend’s quake is directly linked to fracking in the state – as we believe it will be – it will also go down in the record books as the largest manmade earthquake in history.
