Hey Anon,
I was just reaing up about liquefaction and for some reason its something i have thought about when thinking of a US quake,

I could not imagin the damage that could cause,

I think alot of people feel like a quake in the US will happen sometime soon, Even the scientists are saying that it will happen, just a case of when.

Talking about liquefaction in Kentucky, I came across this video on youtube a couple of weeks back:
Liquefaction of thixotropic sediments in Kentucky 2


This is another one from the same poster: Liquefaction of thixotropic sediments in Kentucky



Earthquakes in Kentucky



Seismic hazards associated with local geology, such as ground-motion amplification, liquefaction, and slope failure, also need to be considered in seismic-hazard mitigation and risk reduction. The map at right shows ground-motion amplification potential for the Jackson Purchase Region of western Kentucky (compiled by Street and others, 1997). The shaded areas represent classification C, very dense soil and soft rock, which means a low potential for ground-motion amplification. Mitigation measures in local communities can be fine-tuned by considering how the local geology relates to the hazard potential.

During the entire decade of the 1970s, the USGS recorded a total of 44 earthquakes it classified as "significant." The following decade, from January 1980 to December 1989, the USGS recorded 47 significant earthquakes. That is for the entire decade. From 1990 through the end of 1999, the USGS records 57 significant earthquakes. From 2000 thru to Monday's earthquake in Sichuan, China, the USGS recorded an astonishing 109 earthquakes of at least magnitude 7.0 and 13 earthquakes measuring between 8.0 and 9.9 on the Richter Scale.

Thank you for posting the videos! Its very scary to me and hard to imagine that happening on a large scale. I remember my father in law telling me of an earthquake in the area when he was young and he described the ground as moving like waves on the river, and that wasn't even a very big quake. I have read some stories from folks that survived the quakes in 1811-1812 and one man mentioned the roar being deafening, but also the sound of wild animals screaming...I, like a lot of other posters from all over just pray that if a big one hits here that my family is all together. Me, my husband, and my two children. We all work in different towns...the thought of not knowing if they are okay would be the hardest thing.

And the idiots build their nuclear bombs there, Great Idea. Oh and a dam how pleasant. One good thing the quake has shown is that their chopper force is not up to par.

How did that one feel? Let me know when you wake up if you are even sleeping out there.

Hey folks... I'm glad to see people into this thread lately... I'm sure apex, the OP, is too, but how about a little respect to him... this is simply constructive criticism, but how about some effort with making your post a bit more decipherable at a glance... he did ask a few posts back... ALL the info is not needed... Mag, place, depth, time, and maybe location (long. and lat.)... the rest is just clutter... and linking it using "[url=" with the link and info between the code /url] is also the preferred method... just make a small effort to make it neat and dicipherable...

**Tip -- if you want to know how to do something that you see done in a post, just hit "quote" on that post and it will appear to you within that text.

I'm not bitchin'... I'm not telling ya' how do do things... it's just a constructive suggestion...

I definitely like others posting here, but posting with the entire details isn't easy on the eyes.

Anyway I thought I'd have a look at European quakes a bit. There was one around the start of the Etna eruption, but that's not that big.

PYRENEES
Western Pyrenean Fault Zone
Depth 5km
10 km W Lourdes (pop 15,786 ; local time 03:57 2008-05-18)


Edit, not entirely sure how often they are around there.

Negative Ghost rider. I'm taking 5, 30mg Oxycodone pills and others a day just to be able to function because of my excruciating back pain. I am soon to be going under the knife for that so please bear with me as it wont be perfect but I will limit what it shows.

I will figure out how you do it later. Just wait till I post from the hospital if they let me bring in my lap top.
It may look like Chinese.

Sounds about like what I need Sky, my back is so bad I havent been online in 3 weeks, and truthfully, I am about ready to get off the computer now because the pain is so bad. Good luck with the Hospital stay. I pray all goes well.

A report via the New York Times that China State TV is reporting a strong possibility of an large aftershock in Chengdu. Any data to back up this possibility?

Thanks and find a good doctor with great credentials before you have any surgery, Trust me on that. I hope you get better. I heard that in China the frogs are running for the hills so China may be in store for another one.

This the past history of the resent big quakes. Now that we have had another decent size 6.0 quake in Alaska on the same ring of fire today are we going to watch the wave travel to China again and land there in 10 days with another quake?

I saw on CNN this morning that they had pictures of quake clouds taken right before the big one hit in China that were a nice pretty rainbow color because of all the pollution there.

The clouds had nothing to do with quake, scientists say so and I agree

LoL, The members here who live in or near Reno have been seeing them before the bigger quakes out there so you may want to think about that more.

Do you not remember the animals running for the hills in Indonesia just before the tsunami of 2004? And now we have thousands of frogs running away from the epicenter just before the big one hit on the 12th. The frogs are running away again so I believe that we will see a huge after shock or a bigger quake in the same area.
