Latest in wave of quakes shakes Arkansas

...the USGS is looking into the recent seismic activity in the area.

"We're having them in places we've never had them before," she said. "The USGS is looking into why we're having them and why there have been so many."

Third Earthquake of the Day in Faulkner County

A 3.0 earthquake struck near Greenbrier (Faulkner County) this afternoon just hours after two tremors rumbled around Guy this morning.

The first of those quakes was initially measured at 4.4 but by this afternoon it had been downgraded to 3.8. The second came in at 2.4 on the Richter Scale.

This makes 55 earthquakes in the area in the last week. Most of them have been centered closest to Guy.

All of the quakes have been really shallow. There was a earthquake swarm in the same area during the early 80's. Some around here think that the natural gas drilling in the area is causing all of the recent earthquakes. Something about injecting salt water underground.

Well researched thread - S @ F. Oil drilling and mining will never stop but if scientist and others can get information such as you have posted here across perhaps they will stop drilling and mining in the more vunerable areas. We can only hope.

It's interesting to me how I am seeing this theory whipped out in a number of places on the net.

So where are we in the little more than 90 days since my last few posts on this subject?

Ark. cities feel unexplained surge in earthquakes

Several small earthquakes ranging in magnitude from 1.8 to 3.8 have rattled the north-central Arkansas cities of Greenbrier and Guy this week, and the cause is unknown.

The U.S. Geological Survey has reported more than 30 earthquakes in the area since Sunday, including a magnitude 3.8 quake Thursday morning and at least 16 others occurring Wednesday, two of which were magnitude 3.2 and 3.5. More than 700 quakes have occurred in the region over the past six months.

And this within the last 24 hours:

Alabama Earthquake Felt from Birmingham to Pensacola, FL

A 3.5-magnitude earthquake has been reported in Alabama near the Gulf Coast. Authorities say the Alabama earthquake happened at about 5:15PM today, and as of yet no damage or injuries have been reported.

The quake shook southern Alabama and was reportedly felt as far away as Birmingham.

Pensacola, Florida residents in the Florida panhandle have also reported feeling the 3.5-magnitude earthquake, according to reports from the U.S. Geological Survey.

Now, put on your tinfoil hat:

Extraordinary thread loam! Thank you. As disturbing and hard to stomach as it may be, this information must get out and voices need to be raised on this...

I think your earlier thread might just be proven true.

...Here's another old rant of mine, much voiced but left undeveloped. The idea is that underground deposits of oil, water and gas served historically as "shock absorbers" to contain the effects of geophysical upheaval, and limited its impact to geographic regions.

Now, the earth's shock absorbers are gone - and today, earthquakes' impacts are NOT contained locally but are felt round the world. …So mining and drilling and testing trigger quakes and quakes trigger more quakes, and geomagnetic activity is added to the mix during the Solar Maximum.

…Where's the "Point of Criticality" I wonder? And when…

4. A fourth anticipated crisis is geophysical "instability" - a complete wildcard.

…even minute (pole) shifts cause geophysical reactions in the form of earthquakes and volcanoes. Underground deposits of oil, water and gas served historically as "shock absorbers" to contain the effects of geophysical upheaval, and limited its impact to geographic regions. Now the earth's shock absorbers are gone. The impacts of this loss can be calculated mathematically but the calculations are not available to the public. …

And everything is connected, even our health…
