Investigation Into Youngstown Earthquakes is Ongoing

From the Youngstown Vindicator:
A state agency and local leaders again find themselves looking for answers as to why seismic tremors shook up part of the Valley for the first time in two years. 
Police in Boardman and Poland said they fielded calls Monday from people who felt the early-morning tremors, but no injuries or property damage were reported. 
The Ohio Department of Natural Resources and Hilcorp Energy Co. say it’s too soon to determine the cause of four earthquakes in Poland Township. 
Citing an abundance of caution, however, ODNR ordered Hilcorp to halt all activity at two well pads at the Carbon Limestone Landfill “until further assessment can take place.” 
Hilcorp said it complied, shutting down seven wells at the site including one that was actively producing oil and gas.
