AER seismologist discusses the Fox Creek earthquakes with CBC Radio

"We just want to manage this so it doesn't get any bigger,"AER seismologist. "We're really trying to understand this."

AER has been monitoring since 2008 and receiving near real-time data, from the area, since 2014.

Therefore, AER was aware of all activity since the original swarm in 2013 and since. They did not inform nor take action until after the 4.4 mag event became public.

AER seismologist admits, the regulator responded because the quake was reported as "felt." However, this particular event was NOT the first reported as felt. It was, however, the first reported by locals, the first discussed on social media and the first covered by mainstream media.
