Ohio: Vinton County quake probably not related to oil and gas industry

Ohio Department of Natural Resources officials are investigating an earthquake reported Wednesday in southeastern Ohio, but don’t believe it was related to oil and gas production.

The initial analysis shows a 3.4 magnitude, “naturally occurring seismic event” happened at 12:24 p.m. in Elk Township, just south of McArthur in Vinton County, that was likely associated with the Athens fault line, department spokesman Eric Heis said.
