Athens was rocking yesterday afternoon, and it had nothing to do with any on- or off-campus partying.

The U.S. Geological Survey reported that a magnitude 3.5 earthquake shook Ohio University and other areas of southern Ohio at 12:59 p.m. The earthquake’s epicenter was almost 5 miles deep and about 2 1/2 miles east-southeast of Nelsonville in Athens County.

3.5 hits the news ?
Shoot ,
Here ,it's hardly noticed unless it's a 4-5 .
I live near a military base that has a training area that gets pounded from time to time , it's hard to tell the difference.
Out of habit my TVs and stuff are all earth quake resistant.
Ohio, isn't that on the New Madrid fault ?

Because of the differences in the land, earthquakes are felt over much wider areas in Ohio vs. California, even small ones. And they can be more damaging.

Ohio is not on the New Madrid. That's just around the Missouri bootheel, but should another major earthquake happen there, Ohio would likely receive damage from it just like it did in 1811-1812.

Any new injection wells in the area, or was this a natural earthquake?

Me, three. I didn't move down there because of the fracking mess and potential for quakes like in Youngstown.

When I grew up in southern Ohio we would experience quaking that shook pitures,mirrors on walls furniture rattling about there was no fracking then.We had a good shake a few years back that has nothing to do with fracking.
