A Magnitude 3.4 earthquake rattled Mankato, Kansas just before 1:00 p.m., Tuesday, April 4, 2017. People reported loud booms and strong shaking across the State. Here are some reports of residents: I’m all the way in Russell and I knew there was no thunder but my some was downstairs and came running saying the loud noise and shaking scared him. I wonder if anyone else felt it here. My house shook and a loud boom.

Lasted only a few seconds here in Mankato. Yep, like a bomb went off……..less than a mile from us. – Yes loud boom and windows rattled.  We heard it. Sounded like an explosion Just to let you know, they are getting ready to frack in the Flint Hills of Kansas and maybe push the Keystone pipeline threw Kansas. So it it is most probably linked to FRACKING, like in Oklahoma. MORE
