Odd you know - we had a rushed 'Briefing" from NASA on the 30th with a bunch of nervous Nellie's who said nothing really - hours latered followed by a comet slamming into the sun creating a massive "CME" out the opposite side of the sun in time to impact. All makes me shake my head and say pour me another on Sam....

Check This out.

Wonder what effect if any there will be.

Well,Robin ,thank you.
I'm feeling a little loony also.
Revolution on the brain.

I digress.
Yes,a combination of factors,with the stress of some rocks just getting ready to burst in the form of an earthquake,plays into it all.
And some places are over due.
Just depends on how much the combination of factors will break it all loose.

Kdog, that's the same theory being researced in the February 6, 2009 Sichaun quake--that the weight of the dam (and water) caused the quake (and the ensuing massive loss of life):

I don't understand so much of geology, but the simplicity of adding (or subtracting) massive weight from the earth's surface (crust) makes sense.

And #robin marks...I agree too on the "loony moony" effects...sometimes you can 'feel' something is out of the norm.

It is just a simple circular search. Nothing magical. I think I gave the instructions a while back.

Remember this ?

I emailed the USGS, and I emailed them again because they did not respond. It sort of went

You have it as 4.5mb and sorry but I may not be a seismologist but a 4.5mb cannot be a 6.9 in whatever your other column is. is the web page for the quake, but there is no phase data and no tensor solution. There is also no shake map for it, nor any PAGER reference. Basically this quake was as JMO says - a 4.6 and this 6.9 on the web site is an error and should be removed.

I got an email today saying they would fix it and and if you click the link in the quote you will see it has been fixed.

IT IS OFFICIAL. PuterMan is a doddery old fool.

My sincere apologies to all and sundry for an unforgivable error on my part when listing Bermuda. I am normally very careful about these things, but I missed the - (minus) sign off the longitude. Bermuda is of course WEST and not EAST,

The correct list is as follows:

My list was actually on the border between Afghanistan and Pakistan in a fairly remote area.

Doddery old fool, my eye!
You are the man who wrote to the USGS/NEIC to tell them they had a quake listed at entirely the wrong magnitude -- and a bunch of professional seismologists found that a glaring error had slipped them by and after your message they saw that you were right -- and fixed their error!

Seriously though, we appreciate your dedication, insight and plain-spoken honesty, Puterman! No-one is perfect and a very rare slip-up like the one you made (but then corrected!) is both understandable and quite forgiveable.

You're all right by me.

Best regards,

Pretty shallow quake, that one. Hmmm... Considering how close it is to Guy, possibly linked to fracking?

this is a copy of what i wrote on the Arkansas thread...

There have been four quakes over night in Arkansas. Mostly near Quitman. I don't know what to say.Or rather, don't want to say what I really believe. I had really hoped that this story was over. The injection wells closed. The Guy/Greenbrier swarm ended. But the damage has already been done. Every day I watch the siesmos in Arkansas. Because. Because I know they are continuing to frack, and they are continuing to disposal injection outside of the exclusion zone. The entire area is seismic.

In my humble, non-expert opinion, the sequence of events are leading to a major earthquake. Just like 1811-1812.
It should be evident that Quitman is north of Guy and it may be that the Guy/Greenbrier fault extends to Quitman. One of last night's quakes was in Guy.

I actually think it's an artificial fault (meaning man-made) created by the injections. The fault could rupture from Guy to Quitman. If this is the case. We are in for another swarm. With larger earthquakes to follow.

I know one of my recent posts were extreme and seem over the top. But it's wasn't. I w

Forgive me if my observation is wrong and or laughable.

It seems to me that the swarms and volcanic eruptions resemble events a couple of hundred years ago when in concert, volcanic activity and EQ's were perhaps devastating to the US. This observation is not to place fear in anyone.....just being honest.

Again, I may be totally off and or wrong but it seems as though activity in regards to EQ's and Volcanoes may indeed get interesting.

New Madrid, California, and other areas in the US seem pretty vulnerable considering all the swarms and volcanic activity. Time will most definitely tell. In the mean time though...I am remaining alert and will be taking notes from all you guys and relying on your expertise to guide.
