Oklahoma: It sucks to be you

Sure, we've always known Oklahoma was famous for its tornadoes and people called it either "Tornado alley" or knew it was part of it. Now? It seems Oklahoma is on a fault line. Did you know that? (The Meers). I didn't. That and it USED to have about 50 earthquakes per year. Now? Since 2009? It's increased. 2010? Way more. How about 1047 of them? Yeah, that many. And the thing is, much as these Oklahomans love their oil money and all that, ever since "fracking" for natural gas has taken hold down there, there are more and more earthquakes. Many more. Coincidence? It wouldn't seem so, would it? We'll see.
