I'd just like to log a couple of things that have been mentioned by members in other threads as they are interesting and it's worth collating such information here.
First, in this post on the "Earthquake Swarm in Arkansas Intensifies" thread, TMG333 said:
Had a dream last night about Arkansas getting hit by a 7.4... probably means nothing, but I saw the USGS map with the big red square and specifically remember that number, thought I'd share since I see there's been some activity. ...
I didn't see this one at the time as it was late summer and I wasn't on here so much and not keeping up with everything even when I was. However, today (late last night her time) Westcoast made a statement on her own "Moderate Quakes Striking Odd Places in USA...Coincidence Or Not?" thread. It was in response to queries about her concerns for Oklahoma -- concerns that she first voiced back in August and had repeated several times here on ATS in different threads, well before the 4.7 of last Friday let us know that she could be onto something! In part, her statement said:
I had a dream a few days ago that my quake alert on my phone woke me up. Scrolling across the top was Oklahoma and 7.4.
Now here's the tie-in to TMG333. She responded to the above post and in her reply she said, in part:
Strange, that magnitude you dreamt of is the same one I dreamt exactly one month ago. Only I didn't have a specific location in my dream I felt that it was Arkansas, I could see a map of sorts but I'm terrible with geography as it is and it's possible it may have been meant for another state. I made a post about it in the Arkansas swarm thread after I had it. ...
Also need to add some details that Westcoast mentioned regarding timing of a larger event. In this post she says, among other things:
ugh....I might as well say it. Again, I am not wanting to predict anything.....but if there were to be a larger event, I think it might happen on 11 7. Those are the numbers I saw this afternoon and since I already put myself 'out there'....I may as well go all in.
So, we will see what happens. Like Westcoast and IMG333, I'd be quite happy to see the coming days pass relatively quietly. I'm certain you all feel the same. But just in case, if you live in a potentially affected area, have your bugout bag ready. If you don't have one, start getting one together.
Above all, make sure you have a supply of water. We can survive for days with no food but without water the human organism won't last long. Now, we all know that mains water would probably fail in a major event but even if the taps still flow, the water could be contaminated and therefore unsafe for drinking. But the same applies to wells and other natural sources: quakes can severely impact wells, springs and even brooks and rivers and you cannot rely on them. The only water you can be sure you'll have is what you stored away in advance.
edit on 6/11/11 by JustMike because: typos.
when I also feel "antsy" but can't work out a "where", the trend has been that the quake will be quite large and often with casualties.

I still feel this is the case and I tell you all, it's a horrible feeling, especially when you've had it numerous times and more often than not a big quake does happen. I said in that above post I considered the time frame as within three days and up to a maximum of five days. I see no reason to retract that statement and yes -- today's 5.6 event doesn't qualify as one that would give me the feelings I've been getting. Mike
