Do you think they had haarp in 1811-1812? Could that be what caused those earthquakes too?
Come on man, earthquakes happen! It doesn't take harrp to set one off, the New Madrid would have killed many many people before if the area had been
as populated as it is now. That is the big difference. 27 dams across the state of Tennessee that will, in succession, come down and flood low lying
areas, ruin large amounts of the food supplied out of these areas. That is just one set of structures that weren't there in 1811-1812.
I read some true accountings of the quake back then, it was profound to me. This guy was riding his horse home when his horse stopped and spread it's
legs out to each side, he didn't know what the hell the horse was doing, then he said he watched ahead of him as the dust was rising, he heard the
cracking of the ground and it split right under him and his horse. He said trees shook and fell, and after it stopped the dust was so thick it was
several minutes before you could see ahead of you, and his horse wouldn't rise.
It is inevitable that the New Madrid will have movement again.
The underlying cause of New Madrid earthquakes is not well understood, but modern faulting seems to be related to an ancient geologic feature buried
under the Mississippi River alluvial plain, known as the Reelfoot Rift
The epicenters of over 4,000 earthquakes can be identified from seismic measurements taken since 1974. It can be seen that the earthquakes originate
from the seismic activity of the Reelfoot Rift. The zone which is colored in red on the map is called the New Madrid Seismic Zone
Geology is and interesting subject, plate tectonics don't need haarp to do it's dirty work, but they are just as mysterious and dangerous as you
think haarp is.
