Earthquake Swarm Continues

Arkansas Still Having Odd Earthquake Swarm

The earthquake in Arkansas still continues, and within the hour of this writing, there was yet another small earthquake. These earthquakes are not scattered over a large area at all, but are very pinpointed in a very specific location. You can see that when looking at the map. It is still a mystery on the nature and cause of the these numerous earthquakes, but researchers have not come to an agreement and conclusion. They may not have an agreement on the cause, but there is a controversy still buzzing, where some claim that local drilling for gas is the cause. That will likely be debated for some time.
