The Myanmar Times - - World -

A strong earth­quake struck on Septem­ber 3 in Ok­la­homa, where the in­ci­dence of tem­blors has been on the rise amid a boom in con­tro­ver­sial hy­draulic frac­tur­ing to re­lease oil and nat­u­ral gas. The US Ge­o­log­i­cal Sur­vey said the 5.6mag­ni­tude quake hit at mid­night near Pawnee, a city in the north­east­ern part of the state. The quake was felt in seven states, from Texas to Iowa.
