Must have had a short life then

I have 136 quakes 3+ in 7 days from USGS and that is WAY light on normal which is upwards of 300+ normally. I just picked a random week in June (quietish) and got 174 and a random one in Feb was 134 and Feb was quiet. Middle of July - 233.

It is quiet at present. Often is in October.

I was working on this last night until 2 AM, & quit when I got bleary eyed. I wasn't going to bother, but since a couple of people mentioned it today....This is my third try. If I lose it again you will see a big blank edited page!!!

EQ's in the US on the 35th latitude in the last week: CA, NM, OK, AR & TN.

EQ's in the US in the 30's latitudes in the last week: CA, NM, OK, AR, TN, CO, TX, UT, AZ, NV, MO, IN, NC, SC, IN, AL, WV & VA.

EQ's in the world in the last week in the 30's latitudes: US, Mexico, Greece, Turkey, Turkey-Syria-Iraq border region, Italy, Aegean Sea, Cyprus, Spain, Mediterranian Sea, Ionian Sea, Dead Sea, Azores, Kyrgyzstan,Tajikistan, Iran, Kashmir, Strait of Gibralter, Kermadec Islands, Mid Indian Ridge, Chile & Japan.

PM and eeks4...I know my post here will be like Nursery School to the University level links and research done here...but it there IS a lot occurring along the 37th parallel on the USGS map.

Starting in the east, Mineral, VA, going west thru TN, then Arkansas (the swarm around Quitman); OKlahoma, then the unique 'oddball' New Mexico quake; Nevada (several) and California (Long Valley) also several small ones...all along 37 latitude.

Just a weird coincidence or ???

(Going back to just being a reader.)

Darn it you beat me too it!

I was just coming in to say taking Lat 30/39.99 x Lon -125/-75 there were 1860 1+ in the last month.

Chop that to Lon -103/-75 to exclude California and there were just 74. Only 3 of those were mag 3+ (3. 3.3, 3.6) and the rest were all 2+ or 1+

As you say Mr Muzzy Sir. Norra lot really!

I could have sworn someone said and 35 South - the Adelaide quake.

Cant' see it now.

Guess what they are doing there? Go on have a guess.


I don't think these are up to date maps because they talk about the 1986 acreage.

You can bet your bottom $AUS they are fracking the hell out of these areas now.

Drilled its first gas and oil discovery well in July 2007

Yes, they're starting to frac the hell out of Australia. People were attending protests last weekend. They're fracking in areas of our main food bowls, our agricultural lands in Queensland and our Murray Darling Basin on the NSW/VIC border. There are families who are suddenly becoming very sick. Yet our biggest mining boom is apparently about to begin and the recruiting adverts are everywhere. So I'll be watching for any and all tremors.

I had the 35th south in Australia on my post, but when I edited it to add the links, they ate Australia!!!
I hope I get computer lessons for Christmas!

Wasn't so much referring to the amount of eq's overall, but how many states have had them in a short time span. Especially in states that can go quite a while without having any.
Kind of like old popcorn. You don't get a lot of pops at one time. But use fresh ones, & they are popping up all over. Not unexpected in the New Madrid. What was it in that last AR swarm 2,000?

What seems different is so many in different states in a small time frame. And not just in the 30's latitude. But it is interesting that there are so many in a narrow band across the US in that short time span.

An art instructor gave me an 'F' on a drawing one time because I used a ruler. He said, "There are no perfectly straight lines in nature!" I didn't even think about it until after I had finished that class, but I was drawing something man made, not something from nature! Anyway... I digress...

Unless there is an unknown fault line across the whole US that is in the 30's latitude, it just seems more than coincidence that there would be so many in different states, in a line, west to east, in a week's time. Kind of like when CO & VA were playing tag. Not the norm. It makes you go hmmmm.....

Only because I'm 12 hrs ahead of you

and the fact its raining, so I'm at home
otherwise I wouldn't have posted anything

I wonder if this persieved 35th parallel line of USA quakes has anything to do with the angle of the earth at this time of year in relation to the Sun?.
Very quiet in NZ at the moment, well on land anyway.

I was impressed when we visited my husband's family in Australia. We felt so much better when we were there, & needed much less sleep. At first I attributed it to the adrenalin rush of being on vacation. But as time went on & I did some investigating, I found they used a lot less additives & chemicals in their food than we did. We felt great until the first meal on the plane on the way back home. (An American airline!) Then we got quite ill!

I don't know if the food is still that much healthier than ours, but I hope so! I sure hope they can do away with the drilling! Didn't I read that Australia doesn't even have a nuclear reactor? Something so pristine needs to be especially protected!

reply to post by wasobservingquietly

We have a nuclear medicine facility and there's conflict happening with the indigenous of the Northern Territory because the Federal Government have earmarked their land for a waste dump. We are lucky in some areas that we can buy locally grown fresh produce, but we still have flouride in our city water supplies and the usual fertilizers etc on our farming land.

@Puterman, that South Australia quake was very close to Adelaide. I haven't heard of any mining around there. The area is full of well established and popular wineries. If they were going to fracc there, it would surely cause an uproar. There are faults through that area I believe.

A couple quick comments:

Been watching what appear to be small aftershocks continuing in the Iran area on a station in the UAE (across the Strait of Hormuz), in GEE. But with only one station I can find, it's hard to know for sure. The signatures look like quakes, in the 1.5 to 3 range (small and off the USGS 4.5+ world list.)

And PuterMan, wasn't this 4.8 somewhere near your "spot" of an expected quake in near future? Or is that further north from there- can't remember where it was you said...

posted on Oct, 19 2011 @ 02:38 AM
These Iranian quakes are the first I've seen where I really hope that they are quakes and not another US foray into a foreign country with drones and bomber pilots. I am sure by now it would be breaking news had we invaded so I will assume they are genuine quakes and I spend too much time on ATS
