Fourteen seismic stations have been installed across the Mountain State, with one monitor already in service.

The monitors will provide a stream of data about what's shaking under the the state.

The new seismic monitoring equipment was placed along a grid, with stations located about 45 miles apart across the state, as part of the National Science Foundation-funded Transportable Array experiment.

A number of minor quakes have been recorded in Braxton and Gilmer County, with state experts saying they are unrelated to injecting pressurized frac water into old wells, or related to Marcellus drilling.

Although, in other states, connections to quakes have been made to drilling operations.
