An earthquake warning has been issued for the state of Oklahoma, the first time a non-West Coast state has received such a warning. The US Geological Survey and Oklahoma Geological Survey issued the warning along with a report saying the rate of earthquakes in Oklahoma has increased by 50 percent since October 2013. Additionally, the possibility of a major damage-causing tremor is growing. The agencies cite a likely link between the underground disposal of fracking waste water and the increase. RT’s Ameera David has more details on the troubling report.
