The only Oklahoma well that has been definitely linked to these small quakes is the Lone Star well.  The first few rounds concentrated around the triple-junction rift, but they seem to be moving out from there.  And that would be consistent with fracking.

We just had a 3.1 quake only 3 miles from here!  Not quite an hour ago.  Loud bang; sounded like an explosion.

OK is always having earthquakes of small magnitudes all the time. There is an app that keeps track of that. I just check it daily.

Twenty is not normal, tho.

Odd you don't hear much about earthquakes in the middle of the US.

Oh yes, and there is a huge oil boom in SW Kansas. That could be helping the quakes.

The nemeha uplift is the one I have seen mentioned with regards to quake zones.

Earthquake swarms aren't unusual at all. Perhaps one of the fault lines in southern Oklahoma is becoming seismically active?

That's been the talk for several years, along with fracking.  There has been a lot of drilling in this area of late.

Fault lines are sort of like volcanoes in that some have periods of inactivity and periods of activity. Sometimes, quake swarms are indicative of a fault reawakening or even a new fault coming into existence. An example I can cite of that I have first hand experience with was a series of earthquakes of the northeastern coastline of the South Island of New Zealand which hundreds of quakes occurred on what appear to be two different fault lines that were previously unknown to geoscientists. It's possible that fracking could be the cause of these quakes or the fault lines have re-awakened.
