You're Invited

The now earthquake-prone region of Azle and Reno will be the focus of the panel discussion “What’s Behind the North Texas Quakes?” set for 7 p.m. June 18 at Azle High School, 1200 Boyd Road.

The area northwest of Fort Worth was rocked by more than 30 minor earthquakes in a three-month span, rattling residents and prompting many of them to ask what was behind the flurry of seismic activity. Seismologists and other researchers are trying to identify a link between the earthquakes and drilling and hydraulic fracking activity, including the disposal of wastewater.

The free event will be hosted by KERA/State Impact Texas.

Panelists include Rep. Phil King, R-Weatherford, Reno Mayor Lynda Stokes,Heather DeShon, an associate professor of geophysics, and Mose Buchele, a State Impact Texas reporter who has covered the energy industry for many years.
