Ohio gets another injection earthquake for Christmas

We can safely make fun of these Christmas earthquakes.  Not like the tragedy on the other side of the world.  This probably means they are continuing to inject.  As with Arkansas, if they continue to bust the whole thing open, it can tap into the local water.  Ohio has a long history of injection earthquakes, but nobody calls them that, out of politeness.

Update:  This article confirms it goes into the Precambrian and that's where all the water is being injected.  They have not plugged the bottom yet (which in my opinion renders the well useless), until they can get a new well.  So, they are still injecting, and we can expect bigger earthquakes.
