3.4 Magnitude Earthquake In Nebraska

A very rare magnitude 3.4 earthquake struck North central Nebraska near the border of South Dakota.

In the 5 years I’ve been covering these events online, this marks only the third time I’ve seen an earthquake in Nebraska.

Upon inspecting the area via Google Earth satellite imagery , as of the date of the photos, there is nothing at the epicenter of any noteworthy mention.

The date of the images for the area  is from 2013… thus new activities could be taking place at this location…. activities like FRACKING for instance.

There was recent debate as to whether or not Nebraska would begin doing fracking / wastewater disposal.   The “officials” became paid pets of the industry, and went against local residents wishes, and began doing wastewater disposal injection / fracking as well.

The officials said there would be NO dangers to having fracking operations in Nebraska.

As I warned when then all happened in Nebraska.. we would see earthquakes begin to develop in the state.

Now we see an earthquake strike after years of silence.   Does this mean they are fracking near Valentine, Nebraska?!  Maybe so.

  1. I live in Valentine and I can assure you there is no fricking fracking going on here…although…I wish there was…we could use the jobs and the lower gas prices.
