FrackingThe U.S. Geological Survey is reporting that an earthquake centered in Kentucky also rattled other nearby states.

The USGS website says the epicenter of the 4.3 magnitude earthquake on Saturday afternoon was about 10 miles (16 kilometers) west of Whitesburg. Residents in nearby Virginia, West Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Indiana, Ohio and Georgia also reported feeling the temblor.

TVNL Comment: Once again, earthquake activity is reported in a region where hydraulic fracfking for natural gas is taking place.  The connection between fracking and earthquakes has been established by many studies.  But it will take a major disaster for people to wake up.
