Happy belated New Year everyone! Seems 2011 has started out a bit busy. I have been concerned about the New Madraid Fault as some think that fracking may be the cause of the bird and fish deaths. Thanks for the 2011 thread and the great work you do.

so are we calling Utah a fracking thing?
being that it is in one location?

Okay you guys, I am now CONVINCED about my dogs and earthquakes.

Last night, I was exchanging emails with a local ATS'er regarding our seismic activity. As I was signing off, my dog started acting SOOOO wierd, that I sent this email:

from: westcoast
sent: 3-1-2011 at 06:27 AM
Okay, so I was on my way to bed when my little dog started freaking out.

She is shaking and clinging to me. I have never seen her this way...hope we aren't gonna get a quake!!

Take care-




Now....that is ATS time..
I am on the West coast of the states and it was 12:27 AM.

They just updated USGS with this quake:

Note the local time of 12:33 AM ?????


Yes, this was a very small quake, but it was VERY close to me. (probably around 20 miles)


If my dog EVER acts like that again.....I am going to be very nervous. She was literally shaking, sitting on my feet and wouldn't even take a treat. I had to hold her under a blanket and pet, coo to her for almost 20 minutes before she settled down. It was bizarre. (my other dog was doing his looking around wierd and barking at nothing) I checked the seismos last night ofcourse, but they didn't add it until late this morning.

Well, my little dog is doing it again. Shaking really bad and being clingy. Not quite as bad as last time...she will at least take a treat, but both my dogs haven't wanted to go outside today and she has been sitting under the computer desk.

Hopefully it is nothing!

You have certainly verified how our dogs can feel what's about to happen. If my dog starts freaking like that I am going to take cover. Thanks for sharing that with us!!

We don't get quakes here, but I trust my cat's reactions to weird stuff that happens, like unusual white mists and crashes in the house when nothing has fallen.......Animals I'm sure have more acute senses than we do.

I was just saying I don't think it is a swarm, but you can of course tell me I am wrong. I am just going on the normal definitions that a large event followed by several smaller ones is a main shock with aftershocks, and a swarm is several events of similar magnitudes. Whilst it is rare, it has actually been known for me to be wrong
(did I really say that)
and I do not bite (much
) if people disagree with me,

You can downnload a KMZ file of the Utah quakes over the last 7 days.

They are a bit curious actually as they seem to be in three distinct areas, with a couple of outliers. From the main bunch there is a little group of low mag quakes 74 miles pretty much bang on NE. From there there is another small mag group on a bear of about 8 deg. These would appear at first glance to be associated with the fault zone Joes Valley, or possibly Snow Lake grabben.

This is the distribution in the main block.

I'd have to agree that its a Main Shock and Aftershocks, not a swarm.

From my observations of shallow quakes like this in NZ the aftershocks are rarely right close by the original main event, usually they are a few km away. eg recently in 2010 the Christchurch/Darfield, the Kaituna/Wairarapa, and the Waiau River Valley/Frasertown/Wairoa earthquakes all had the initial aftershocks at least 1km away.

I wouldn't put to much emphasis on the accuracy of Fault Line traces that USGS (and others) show on maps, often the actual fault line can be several km wide.

Well, there wasn't anything big enought to get recorded automatically. It wasn't last time either though. I have spent some time this morning looking at the nearest stations and I have found a few suspects...but I don't know if they will be big enough to be recorded...one is, I think.

In my looking though, I have found some creepy things going on at Mt. Rainier today, and also the Bellingham area. I will go ahead and post links here for all of it, for those of you with some time on your hands this morning!


First, a few stations nearest me that have some suspects for my dog's behavior. Keep in mind that I am PST...so the UTC are 8 hours ahead of me:

CMW

(8:00 UTC mark....so about midnight my time...notice the action nearer real-time)


JCW

(10:00 am UTC mark...about 2:00 AM my time)

MCW

(about 4:00 am my time)

These all came from Here, where you can find the stations I listed above



NEXT:

While looking, I noticed some activity that seemed to have started this morning, on these stations:

SHUK
Shukson mountains

MBW
Mount Baker

MBKE
N of Bellingham

SBES
Bellingham

A04D
W of Bellingham

Those above are all from the same provided link.


NEXT:

This is even more curious to me. In looking at the mountain ranges, I noticed that Rainier seems to have some prolonged 'rumblings', and it is recorded on all the stations:

RCM

RCS

STAR

These were pulled from HERE

Tell me what you think!!

Those events at Rainier look like noise/surface movement to me. They are too long and disorganized to be local earthquakes. Avalanches?

Looks like there's a bit of a weather system parked over the mountain right now:

I was thinking maybe avalanches too....I just don't know if I have seen it show up on all of them like that though, and especially the 'black' one starts like quake.

I dunno, probably nothing to worry about.
