Kentucky already posted by me at the top of this page...
We can't upload images yet.
go to google earth and look where this quake hit... there's a big lake there, or something... fracking?

I ken ye not be on line an' most like abed, but soon's ye return from witherall ye wander (e'en in t'land o'dreams), oi'd be rightly pleased t'be told, if this time just gone that ye mention'd, ye be a-hearin' the rumblin' sounds afore the shakin' of the groun' beginned.
'Tis a matter o' great interest for all here, for there be evidence writ by learned types -- an' indeed it's e'en been noted by them seismologists, that these sounds arrive just a t' same time as what they call "P waves" do, an' afore them "S-waves" and t' shakin' that come with 'em.
T'be sure, oi have some specifics for ye. Oi be finding this new document, writ by "David P. Hill, Scientist Emeritus, U.S. Geological Survey" an' posted t' month of August this very year of our Lord wit' the name What is That Mysterious Booming Sound?, and within't says this Hill fellow (who be a Scientist, no less):
A section of the Lawson report on the great San Francisco earthquake of 1906 entitled “Sounds Connected with the Earthquake” (Lawson 1908) includes earwitness descriptions of sounds accompanying the mainshock as ranging from “a rumbling, roaring sound,” “a heavy wind,” “a rushing noise,” and “an approaching train” to “a team crossing a bridge.” A significant number of earwitness descriptions of earthquake sounds cite the sound as preceding the felt shaking from earthquake by several seconds. Indeed, on page 288 of Elementary Seismology, Richter (1958) recounts the experience of seismologist Pierre St. Amand in the recording vault at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks, during a series of earthquakes in 1947 when he noted that audible sounds coincided with the first (P-wave) arrivals while felt shaking began with the S-wave arrivals.
(Colorin' an' extra darkenin o' t' letters done by meself.)
So, as oi be thinkin' that ye an' others about 'ere moight be wanting to read it, here'tis.
All t' best to ye, and in truth from me 'eart wishin' you an' yours safe 'arbour,
(Mods: It's National Talk Like a Pirate Day. I kid ye not!)

No apology needed - its all good!
Sorry, didn't mean to double post you either. Just find it quite interesting (and disturbing) with all these quakes (in un-usual areas) on that line.
p.s. I am not far from WV..I am in VA and appear to be pretty much in the middle of the 2 quakes. Both on 37 and both fairly shallow. Some things really make ya wonder what is going on
