According to a June report by ABC affiliate KOCO in Oklahoma City, earthquakes have increased dramatically in Oklahoma recently.
In 2015, the state recorded 857 quakes of magnitude 3.0 or greater. There were 585 in 2014 and just 106 in 2013.
Oklahoma recorded 30 earthquakes of 4.0 or greater in 2015, 15 in 2014, and only 3 in 2013.
Historically, the state hasn’t been prone to such activity. From 1978-2008, Oklahoma recorded just two earthquakes per year that measured 3.0 or greater, according to the USGS.
Oklahoma is now just as prone to earthquakes as California, according to a March report from the New York Times.
