Southern Kansas sees sudden spike in earthquakes
A sudden spike of earthquakes in southern Kansas is raising eyebrows in the region, where there have been more earthquakes in the past two weeks than there were in the years between 1990 and 2013. As of Oct. 26, there have been 52 earthquakes in Kansas since Oct. 15, most of a magnitude around 2.0 or 3.0. According to the Kansas Geological Survey, there were just 19 earthquakes in the state between 1990 and 2010. There were no recorded earthquakes in 2011 or 2012.
