Quake cluster in a Kansas City ‘shocks’

No pun intended ..


But why the quakes?

A county in central Kansas experienced a pretty shocking uptick in seismic activity last week — 11 earthquakes in five days. 

It started with a magnitude-2.4 earthquake Wednesday morning just 2 1/2 miles southwest of Hutchinson, Kansas, in Reno County, according to the United States Geological Survey. 

There would be 10 more before the week was out.

The second came just before 8 a.m. on Friday. The magnitude-4.2 shook the area, centered less than a mile southwest of Wednesday’s temblor. More than 1,000 people reported feeling the quake across Kansas, Oklahoma and Missouri, according to the USGS.
