Earthquakes in the 432? Yep, it's a thing. I have lived here in the Permian Basin since 1992, and I can't recall a time where there were as many earthquakes here in the 432 than the last 2 to 3 years. I do remember several strong ones in the mid 90's. I have a cousin who lives in California who has experienced many earthquakes while living there and he is surprised and shocked that we have them here in West Texas.

So another Earthquake hit last night here in Midland.
Tatum Quinn from NewsWest 9 reported on her facebook....

ANOTHER EARTHQUAKE! This one woke me up. 2.8 magnitude about 6 miles north of Midland reported by USGS.

Here is what some Facebook users had to say about it...

'Yep, I felt it.'

'Was there one yesterday at midnight? Because I swear my bed shakes'

'Rattled my house'

'Rattled with my house also I live on the east side of Midland, twice in two days'

'Yep I'm up'.

'Sorry guys I had to let it rip couldn’t hold on any longer'

So there is this cool website called Earthquake Track that will list all activity in your area.
