Texas: 53 000 waste water disposal injection wells.

Don't know how many fracking wells. If you want to find out, there should be a number somewhere on this site...

I know it says Railroad Commission. But that's who regulates the industry in Texas. And you can't get a more ethical, and a more just group than the railroads. Anyone remember Blazzing Saddles.

Texas is famous for it's hunting and hunters. They even have hunting farms. It's called Canned Hunting. Dick Cheny did some hunting and shooting in Texas.

Now Texas is hunting the biggest game of all. It's a giant paper tiger. Texas wants to blast it into extinction.
They have it in thier sights.

Their target- The EPA.

If I remember correctly and please correct me if I am wrong.. didn't someone do some "Dick Cheney" hunting in Texas.. I'm sorry that's so wrong... but I just thought it was amusing..
On topic that is really disheartening, as are so many things done to people and the environment in the name of Profit

I would think so...but just want to make sure there is not something else we should know about said activity.

It looks like USGS upgraded the Texas guess is because of the 1200+ "did you feel it" responses.

ETA: Puterman, your rant made me smile. And your graphs of the Hawaii quakes are wonderful-thanks for those.

Dozens of earthquakes and aftershocks shook the Big Island Wednesday afternoon into Thursday morning, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

Please forgive me if I upset you. Sometimes I'm a bit of a

I sincerely apologize.

Anyway, that little rainbow face is a gif file that's saved in my ATS pics folder. If you'd like to use it yourself, just copy the following: (pic)np4ea069d8.gif(/pic) and use square brackets in place of the parentheses I've used here. Then save it in a notepad and you can use it any time.

On Topic: this mag 5.1 quake west of Macquarie Island is a bit of an unusual one:

Note the depth. At 15.2 km it's reasonably shallow. And while they do get a few quakes around that region they tend to be on the smallish side. I don't recall any other mag 5-plus events there in a while -- some months at least?

Is it possiblt that the Texas quake (which I did not feel btw, Texas is big and I was far enough away and on sandy soil) may perhaps be related to this quake as it's fairly close to the antipodal point for the Texas quake.

Perhaps the fracking in the area has weakened the underlying rock (well, duh) to the point of failure and this is one of the rare circumstances in which being the antipodal point from the referenced quake in the Indian Ocean contributed to the rupture. A bit more than 48 hours had elapsed between the Indian Ocean quake and the Texas quake, and they are are within .1 magnitude of one another, so it would not be directly due to the arrival of the p waves but as has been shown in research regarding ETS triggering earthquakes days after the seismic waves pass.

Something to think about.

I suppose I could let you get away with 'some months'

It is about 130 miles from the Mag 6.6 in 2000. That 6.3 actually falls just a few clicks outside the search box I used so I am sure I would find more, but from 1964 to present in an area defined thus:


These are the Mag 5.9 + quakes (and bear in mid the 6.3 is only fractionally outside this area (I was guessing the bounds and did not quite go far enough)

Extracted from ANSS using the above parameters.

Prior to that the Centennial catalogue of the USGS has just one further entry
1946-04-23T04:55:56.000Z -50.00000 140.00000 6.8000

I guess earlier than that was very definitely uncharted waters as far as earthquakes are concerned.

You don't really want to see the full earthquake! That was hardly even a foreshock

I changed the map to satellite and zoomed in. Looks like a farm to me. It may be the terraces that seem weird. Generally "crop" stawberries are planted in this manner.

I don't know of any quakes in that area but the news hasn't mentioned this one either.

That is excellent info! Thank you very much for sharing it!

It certainly shows that quakes of this size are by no means common in this region.

On the other hand, it also shows that they are not unknown -- and I doubt that there were nations that had the technology to zap that region and cause quakes back in the 1920s.

PS: starred your post. Want people to notice it and see those links!!

Just FYI - none of the cities w/quakes listed on that map are near the area for the recent quake. Most are far west Texas or the panhandle. Gladewater is far northeast TX.

Here is a link to an article in the Victoria Advocate. Victoria is 84 miles from Pawnee. The city in the article, Cuero, is 57 miles from Pawnee.

Following is an older link but it has a map of where the oil field runs in that area. It is quite large.

Hi Puterman,

I was actually hoping you'd do exactly what you did
and I'm grateful to you for posting that list of data. Yes, when I said "some months" I was trying to indicate that in spite of my poor memory, I knew it was likely no more than a few months since the last quake of any size there, but I couldn't be sure just how recent.

Many thanks,

Thanks for your input, TXTriker!
It's always good to have info from people with local knowledge.

Funny how your news sources there aren't saying much. I'm guessing that Ghadaffi is getting a lot of the coverage right now.


posted on Oct, 20 2011 @ 04:12 PM
I would like to ask for some help. This link is to the seismo in Hockley, TX. It looks different to me than the ones normally shown. I'm trying to learn how to check it against eqs to see what type of readings it gets from the various eqs around the world.

Thanks in advance.
