The moderately strong quake struck at 3:50 a.m. Saturday and lasted a couple of minutes before subsiding.

According to USGS data the quake reached just over a mile deep near Plainville.

The quake is the largest in a series of Rooks County temblors recorded recently by the USGS.

Yes this is indeed most probably fracking…

It pretty much fits with the facking maps below, no?

More than 1000 people reported their shaky experiences on the USGS homepage, any where from 50 to 200 miles of the epicenter of the temblor.

While no other earthquakes were recorded in the past 24 hours in central Kansas, at least six recently struck off the coast of Oregon, two of them registered a 5.4 magnitude. Keep safe!
