"How close was this 4.7 to where the mass bird and fish deaths occurred in Arkansas? "

Beebe (bird death) is about 30 miles and Franklin Cty, (fish kill) about 85 miles away


A bit earlier in this thread, Robin posted a map that showed he relationship of fish, earthquake, and bird events. The fish were to the west, the birds to east and the earthquakes smack in the middle. All on a straight line.

Once is an accident
Twice a coincidence
Third is a conspiracy

Hmmm, but then again it could be nothing to see and we should just go about our business.










Nah, I'm sticking around.

We have another mass bird death case in PA. It was within 2 miles of the epicenter of a 4.2 EQ that we had 18 years ago. I know it is a reach, but what else might be killing them?

Another bird die-off.

Yep..

This quake made local news here in Memphis and is on every news station....People calling in to tell what they felt.

It's even on CNN

Back on January 3rd I developed a hypothesis to explain the bird and fish kills. Since I had been following the earthquakes, and I knew they were fracking in Arkansas, I did the math. They were kill by gas ruptures.

On my Robinesque Ruminations, I explain all the events. My hypothesis changed as facts became available. So you need to read the final conclusion. Simple put. Gas ruputure in the river killing the fish. Another rupture happened near the roosting birds. It did not poison them. The sound of the rupture scared them and sent them into an emergency migration. The other dead birds in neighbouring states were from the same flock.

Ignore my creative writings, and start half way down the page.

"Gas ruputure in the river killing the fish."

But it only killed one species of fish? I don't know about that....

Forgive me for asking, if it has already been covered in this thread.... Isn't it better to have numerous smaller quakes over time to relieve stress, than for decades to pass with no activity and stress to build and eventually break causing a massive quake?

Maybe this 'swarm' is a good thing?

Thanks everyone for all the information you guys provide. [especially Robin and Puterman) I've been following your posts since the bird deaths. I live in Conway, AR. Last night was the first time I have actually felt an EQ, it scared me quite a bit. I had no idea what to do. Do you think they are going to continue and get larger?

Take a few minutes and read this article and you will see that the type of faults in this area are quite different from plate boundary faults.

Rather than repeating stresses, what is happening is that the stresses are being transferred from on area to another. This could result in a HUGE amount of stress collecting at one point which would then release a LARGE quake o the scale of the 1811-12 quakes, although not necessarily in the same place.

OK just turned on local news here in Mo and the announcement snippet for noon news was "Just how many earthquakes did Mo. have last night? And how common are those earth shakers here in the Ozarks?"

I was on until 1am and then got back up at 3am until 4 reading this thread, I KNEW that I was feeling physical symptoms such as nausea and dizziness which were not related to my usual feelings with tornadoes, that there was something else.

Now did anyone catch this and what do you know? I dont have a whole lot of time right now to be online but just had to come on to see whats up!!!

There's one thing I know real well, and that's fish. Please check Robinesque. I've provided all my arguments there. I am an avid fisherman. I live in Kenora. One of the most beautiful places in the world. It can legitimately argue that it's the sport fishing capital of the world.

The reason is was drum fish is that they school in huge numbers. They are bottom dwellers. And we can thank mankind for the fact that it was only one species. We've fished out all the others. The drum are overpopulated because no one wants them. They are not commercially valuable. The rupture happened when there was an inversion due to a sudden change in temperature. The rupture had depleted the oxygen in a river system already stressed. Remeber, they're fracking everywhere and there's already pollution from all the common sources. The fish got caught in a level of water without oxygen. They probably were just floating, resting near the bottom when the water suddenly changed. They were trapped. I'm sure some survived. But most did not.

WoW!!


On the Memphis stations, the news anchors are now reporting that there were 3 quakes last night. I know about 4.7 and the 3.8, but not sure about the 3rd.

Respectfully, that's absolutely wrong. You are correct when it comes to the quakes in California. But read this report. It tells you how mid-continental faults are different.

So if I am reading you correctly, the Arkansas swarm that appears to be getting larger in number and magnitude could be building up to a 6.0 or greater?

That is significant, especially since we know that the New Madrid has potential of deadly 6.0 or greater quakes...

Ah, ok I checked the station and here is what they had to say:


Our newsroom received several calls from viewers in places like Stone and Shannon Counties in Missouri saying they felt the quake.

There are no immediate reports of damage or injuries.

That's wrong, there's been dozens of quakes overnight. Only the bigger ones are posted. They are slow with the smaller ones.

By my rough count, there were around 36 earthquakes last night in Arkansas.

You aren't hearing that on the news. This is the source for all the facts.

You are correct...

I know that they are not reporting on the smaller as to not cause panic but......

And the Memphis and Arkansas weather forecast is weird today...tornado watches ALL day, the highs this morning were above 70, the lows tonight will be in the 30s....

Rain is off and on

Well if we continue to report from the various areas within the suspected NMZTriangle, we may get a picture of where the weakness in the faultlines will be when it does send off the big one.

I always thought San Andreas was going to happen first and then like a chain reaction NMZ would go second.

If NMZ does go and all that we see is a 6. we will have dodged the bullet even though there will be a tremendous fallout. My intuition has always been more in the lines of a 8. or greater.

Also do you know exactly what time it was when you felt your EQ last night? I am wondering if it is going to be like a land tsunami when it does go, sending ripples like a rug being shook out across the triangle states.
