If you're in an area where fracking was done couldn't quakes be more serious than if the ground structure was untouched?

No theres been no fracking done here. But, fracking can cause earthquakes to occur where they wouldn't otherwise. In southern California there has been earthquakes from injecting water into geothermal vents to create steam to run turbines to make power. They've been doing it there for many, many years. Supposedly they have reduced the amount of water they have been injecting in for several years now. There is several fault lines just north of Lake Tahoe and they have been active on and off for many many years. Not usually very big but at times can be felt many miles away. We do live on the Pacific rim or ring of fire and more than likely it's simple plate tectonics. I predict that a major earthquake hits the Juan De Fuca plate area off of Washington State soon. They have already have had one in the Aleutians and before that, the one off of Japan. They have been and are due.

The strongest recorded earthquake in the U.S. was in Missouri in 1804. The Mississippi river flowed backwards.

Many of the major fault lines have been found in The Majove Desert.. I lived in San Bernardino, Ca. for over 30 yr's.
My house sat directly on "The San Andeas fault line"
(which is in the Majove Desert)
