This earthquake is the second within a week, with the first one occurring in the Red Deer/Sylvan Lake area. That first earthquake was linked to a fracking well operated by Vesta Energy but it’s not clear the cause of Sunday’s earthquake.
Felt it about 8km west of rocky! – whole family woke up from beds shaking and a loud bang!
