Fortunately, our gas well coordinator has this covered. If you live in Arlington and feel the earth move, please contact Collin Gregory, Gas Well Coordinator, with the City of Arlington, Texas. Mr. Gregory will track these tremors and look for patterns. Then he will either hire an outside firm or rent equipment to determine the cause of this seismicity. Please include the date, time, and what you felt:

State Farm insurance also has you covered. In light of all the fracking earthquakes, they are urging residents to purchase earthquake insurance.
