A large earthquake, which rocked Oklahoma in 2011 and was felt across 17 states,
was caused by oil-drilling, scientists said today.
The 5.6 magnitude quake injured two people, buckled a highway, destroyed 14
properties and was felt for hundreds of miles.
A team of scientists today ruled it was caused by deep injections of waste-water
in the drilling of oil - counteracting the view of state seismologists who said
it occurred naturally.
If they are right, it is the largest man-made earthquake recorded in the U.S.
and will leave many question marks over the practice of disposing of waste-water
from oil production underground.
