OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- A rare earthquake warning has been issued in Oklahoma and some scientists believe it may be tied to fracking; a technique to pull oil and natural gas from the earth.
Despite the increase in earthquakes, Oklahoma is not known for its seismic activity. The jury is still out on the cause behind the quakes, but scientists are keeping an eye on what's happening in Oklahoma.
"You basically put a lot of water down a high pressure well anywhere, you run the risk of this, but this again is kind of an example of things kind of going hay-wire." Director of NV Seismology Graham Kent said.
Although an oil company called 'Noble' may bring fracking to eastern Nevada, Kent says what's planned in Nevada is no where on the scale of what's happening in Oklahoma.
