Oklahoma Residents Voice Concern Over Quakes

-
What's the deal with Oklahoma?

Hundreds of concerned residents showed up at the town hall meeting to talk about all the recent earthquakes and the potential harm they're causing

Seismologists say Oklahoma has more quakes than states further west.

Experts say for 30 years, our state averaged 1.5 a day but since January first through now, we've had 231 earthquakes with a 3 point magnitude or higher.

Experts say they understand the concerns about fracking and waste water wells causing the earthquakes and there might be a correlation. But it still would not explain the cluster of quakes in the Jones area where no fracking is taking place and there are no wastewater wells.

But many residents say they left with out clear answers.
