Arkansas Earthquake Swarms

The Associated Press reports from  that several earthquakes have been rattling nerves in cities of Greenbrier and also Guy.  Since last Sunday more than 30 have been reported ranging from 1.8 to 3.5 and causing a lot of speculation.  No one cause has been pinned down although the locals blame the ongoing natural gas exploration in the area which uses a technique called 'fracking'. 
In the past 6 months the 700 quakes have no doubt 'frack-tured' many nerves.
