Guy Continues To Shake

The earthquake swarm continues near Guy.  It was very interesting to see the swarm stop for more than a day after the active Monday, but it appears that it's picking up again.

For the past several weeks, most of the quakes were 2.5 or less which isn't felt by most people.  Since last week, we have seen an increase in the magnitude with 4 quakes at 3.0 or above including the big 4.0 last Monday morning.

I'm once again posting the in depth interview with Scott Ausbrooks with the Arkansas Geological Survey.  This was recorded Monday morning and we discuss the possible causes of the swarm.

Thanks so much for doing this interview! I've been wanting to hear from an expert on this for a couple of months, since the quakes have really picked up, and to know why it's happening.
