Study links hundreds of earthquakes to fracking

  • A new study suggests fracking triggered hundreds of unnoticeable earthquakes in eastern Ohio late last year.
  • The quakes fell along a fault lying directly under three hydraulic fracturing operations and tended to coincide with nearby activity.
  • Some of the tremors were significantly larger than expected, leading researchers to question whether fracking could over time trigger larger quakes.
