Seismically active spring in West Virginia
LINK: USGS report for May 8 WV earthquake
Another small earthquake occured this morning near Servia in Braxton County, a 2.4 magnitude event just after 3AM. Since April 4, there have been five small earthquakes along the I-79 corridor in Braxton County, WV, the first and strongest being a 3.4M event on April 4.
These events are unlikely to be mining-related, due to there not being any active or dormant coal mines in that immediate region. It is possible that all five quakes are related, with the past four events being aftershocks of the April 4 3.4M event. All in all, a very rare sequence of events for the state.
