3.2R in Oklahoma! <---As predicted

A magnitude 3.2 earthquake has struck about 20 miles northwest of Fairview, Oklahoma.
The U.S. Geological Survey reports the temblor occurred at 10:14 p.m. at a depth of just under 7 miles. Fairview is about 100 miles northwest of Oklahoma City.
There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries.
A magnitude 5.1 earthquake struck northwest of Fairview in February. Geologists say damage is unlikely in earthquakes below magnitude 4.0.
Thousands of earthquakes have been recorded across Oklahoma in recent years, and many have been linked to the underground disposal of wastewater from oil and natural gas operations. Regulators have asked oil and natural gas producers to close injection wells in certain areas or reduce the volume of fluids they inject.
Above we show a close up of the region of the earthquake, where we can see the oil wells and the red spot the epicentre. We can see it is only 300 yards from the wells!!
