    I wonder does this have anything to do with drilling around that area?

    According to the United Geological Survey, Snyder, TX has recently had a dozen earthquakes ranging from 2.7 to 3.8 on the Richter scale.
    Snyder is not an area prone to earthquakes, but in the last three years there have been fifteen.

    Actually, this is the 16th quake near Snyder since 1977.

    I figured there were more Mom that article was dated back in March.

    I don't know enough about the drilling for natural gas they do in that area. I do find it curious that they've had a sudden upswing in quakes lately.

    I'm very curious about that!
