Cushing OK earthquake highlights concern with fracking dangers


The Insurance Journal has reported concern about the connection between fracking and the epidemic of earthquakes in Oklahoma, the latest a rather significant one in Cushing, north of Oklahoma City.

The article notes that Cushing is near one of the nation's largest oil trading hubs and that the swarm of quakes is a potential national security issue for a Trump administration.

The other obvious question is covering the damage to homes, and especially to their resale values for people who have to move.
