The 837th Quake Strikes Oklahoma in 2014

‘It feels like the earth is opening up and you are falling’

At least 837 earthquakes measuring magnitude  2.5 or greater have struck the state of Oklahoma, so far this year, according to the USGS archives.

At least 285 of the quakes measured 3.0Mw, or greater. This compares with only 277 quakes that occurred during the previous 14 years.

“The houses are bouncing. It is frightening,” said the information manager for the Oklahoma Corporations Commission, the state regulator for the oil and gas industry.

Fracking Oklahoma to Death

More than 90 percent of Oklahoma produces oil and gas, and the industry’s wastewater is injected into thousands of disposal wells, usually old gas wells, around the state, said a report. “Scientific studies have shown wastewater activity may cause quakes when occurring near geologic faults.”

However, regulators still claim ignorance concerning the link between the disposal wells, and the spike in the seismic activity.

“It feels like the earth is opening up and you are falling,” said a resident in Guthrie, a town of about 11,000 people, located 40km west of Oklahoma City, which has been hit by at least 11 quakes M3.0 or greater, so far this month. “It’s scary.”

1 Dead, 2 dozen homes destroyed, 1,000 evacuated

A ferocious wildfire has killed at least one person, destroying 2 dozen homes on 4,000 acres, and affecting more than 6,000 people. Authorities  issued mandatory evacuations for at least 1,000 residents in the burn area, in Logan County, just north of Oklahoma City.

Central Oklahoma, including the area consumed by the deadly wildfire, has experienced its second-driest 6-months on record, with just 5 inches of precipitation (rain and melted snow), which is about 28 percent of the average for the region.

Critical Fire Weather Conditions Continue across SW U.S.

Red Flag Warnings

Red Flag Warnings remain in effect across Southwest, Great Plains, as another day of dangerous fire weather conditions continues across the U.S. Southwest and Great Plains, according to NWS forecast.

Drought, Record Heat

Drought, record heat, “long duration single-digit humidity,” and strong, gusty winds of over 50mph have combined to create extensive critical fire-weather conditions across a vast region, prompting the the National Weather Service (NWS) to raise Red Flag Warnings across much of the Southwest and into the Great Plains.

Critical Fire Weather

“Elevated to critical fire weather conditions continue across most of the Southwest into the Great Plains, with an area of Extremely Critical risk highlighted in extreme south central Kansas into the eastern Texas Panhandle. Record heat, gusty winds and low relative humidity values will continue the high fire danger through at least Wednesday,” NWS forecast.

Hundreds of Active Wildfires

Up to 600 active wildfires are currently burning across the continental U.S., according to the USFS.

Wildfires in California

“Over the last several months we have seen an unseasonable number of wildfires across Northern California,” according to a fire chief for Cal Fire.

At least 900 wildfires consumed more than 2,400 acres in Northern California during the first 100 days this year. The average for the period is about 340 wildfires burning 1,000 acres.
