Officials and local residents are concerned that Gas Well Fracking and Deep Water Disposal/Injection might be the cause of the recent Earthquake Swarm as well as the one in Aug/Sep of 2011.
The State of Arkansas also recently put an Emergency Moritorium on Fracking to determine if a recent swarm of earthquakes was triggered by oil and gas activities.

In this area the swarm of earthquakes have been located and pinpointed very close to the main deep injection well near Cokedale and Valdez, west of Trinidad Colorado in Las Animas County.
