Last night, March 1st 2020, a small area in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada, experienced an eensy weensy 2.6 magnitude earthquake. Link.

Only a small number of people felt anything, but, the weird part of the story... a large number of residents heard a huge explosion. Friends of mine said the were convinced a building must have exploded, or something in the harbour had blown.

We aren't really known for our fault lines, so what would have caused the incredibly loud noise? I know we have some resident earthquake experts, can they shed some light?









I have my own personal conspiracy theory, but it's just for fun...

I personally (biased, obviously) believe Nova Scotia might be one of those far off sparsely populated, easy-ish to isolate, paradises that would withstand a global catastrophe... and at the end when it's time to reemerge, we'd still have fresh water, access to cold ocean fish, a fair sized seasonal growing band for food crops, and a small enough local population that they wouldn't pose much of a threat for whoever decided to rebuild here.

We have a sizeable number of "elite" people who own property here, on and off the books, who might possibly flee here if # ever hit the fan.

Could this *speculation alert! speculation alert!* insanely loud "explosion" noise, and subsequent babyquake have been some sort of blast to make way for an underground shelter near the harbour, and the later reports just a ...*dun dun duuuuuun* cover-up!?

I mean, probably not, but what a fun homegrown conspiracy. 😂

At this point, nothing would surprise me.

Is say that is a very plausible hypothesis.

Probably already got a huge complex of tunnels under you


Be on the look out for spontaneous sink holes!

Joking.....kinda.

Isnt Nova Scotia where they all went for safety in World War Z?

We actually have tons of sinkholes! But we're also pretty waterlogged in general. Sink Link

'Nova Scotia'? Never heard of this country.

How can you even tell that a 2.6 quake happened? My dogs going down the stairs would shake the house more.

Right? My grandfather had farts that registered higher on the Richter scale.

People heard the "explosion", then the news told everyone it was an earthquake. Suspicious. People in Dartmouth reported helicopters everywhere, a huge police presence.

If this isn't evidence that Bill Gates blew up his evil vaccine lab, I don't know what is.

I believe Oak Island is located somewhere in Nova Scotia too, and they are known for having a vast tunnel system that's booby-trapped thats protecting some hidden treasure.... So, Tunnel systems aren't that out of the question in the area...

Oak Island is over an hour away from Dartmouth. My parents actually live in Western Shore, about 10 minutes away from the islands causeway. I wouldn't say there's a "vast network of tunnels" on the island, as it's very small and they're mostly collapsed; but Nova Scotia has it's mysteries for sure.

You have my sympathies for such a traumatic event. I myself lived through an enormous 2.1 in 1996 / 97 in another tectonically stable part of the world (North Yorkshire).

The ptsd is still strong in the area from this event and you only rarely hear of it spoken - and even then only by locals hunched over in a brooding, menacing fashion in dark corners of the local village pub.

Interestingly enough, "mining activity" was also a suspect. Hmmmm........

maybe go look at a geology map of the America northern hemisphere,

the extremely old 'Craton' (the first landmass stage of a continent) is rock that floats on magma

check to see if the EQ was Deep and not just shallow slippage EQs of the west coast type.


I bet the EQ your talking about is centered around the ancient foundational 'bedrock' of the N America Plate...caused by the over-heated Mantle, which is buckling up the bottom side of the north America Tectonic Plate

isn't the deep undersea Georges Bank lie just East of NS ?
EQs in divers places according to Matthew Prophecy on end-times


 



as for mining cause, per Flavian

are you thinking Oak Island bore holes ?

Is there any fracking or mining going on there at the time or not too far in the past? It was not a big quake, it could be just a local quirk. I can't find it on the USGS site.

There are tons of mines all over the place here. Gypsum, coal, gold, etc.

I personally think the bore holes at Oak Island would be a non-issue. I see a geologist here has said it would be an aftershock 400 million years in the making. I honestly know little to nothing about earthquakes. I just find it strange that people heard such a loud noise.

And considering the magnitude of the one that just happened you still don't.

Sad but true. I've been more shaken at a backwoods celidh.

I have family in Nova Scotia; I’ll see what I can find out!
