The region just South of Yellowstone has been shaking over the past few days, some say fracking is to blame

Yellowstone Earthquake SwarmYELLOWSTONE, WY (INTELLIHUB) — A recent swarm of earthquakes rattled the area South of Yellowstone National over the past few days, raising the eyebrows of some.

A significant “4.2, 3.2, and a 4.9” struck the area after a series of quakes also struck the midwest the day before reported YouTuber Dutchsinse, going on to explain how the quakes were triggered by fracking operations.

“Over the course of the past 48 hours, December 7th, through December 9th 2013 — a series of moderate sized earthquakes has struck directly along the edge of the North American Craton.

This newest craton edge earthquake swarm consists of upper 3.0M and mid-4.0M earthquakes occurring just South of Yellowstone National Park (supervolcano).  Still well within the newly defined perimeter of the underground magma chamber(s) associated with past eruptions.

This Yellowstone swarm is on top of yesterdays 4.5 magnitude event in Oklahoma, and the ADDITIONAL 3.7 magnitude event in Northeast Texas (both at fracking operation earthquake swarm locations).”, wrote Dutchsinse on his blog.
