That's very interesting, in the last web bot report it talks of bodies of waters just draining away.

The Pine Bluff Arsenal is about 30 to 40 miles SSE of Little Rock, Arkansas. It's about 60 miles from the "cluster quakes."

I doubt the PBA has any connection to the "cluster swarm" of quakes.

remember the gulf oil rig that spilled all over everything? well that oil came from an oil volcano under the surface tied into the new madrid fault line. they capped it yeah!! good job!! If the NWO decides to pop it with a small nuke new america may look like the fourth picture down on this page: alligatorfarmdotwordpressdotcom/2011/01/28/floodmap-nle2011/ Umm thats the Navy's sumation. Not sure if u live in Arkansas man but u might wanna move.......

I didn't mean it was related, it just seems very irresponsible to have a current/former chemical lab near a fault line.

Not sure if you saw it Robin, but so far in just 1 day, Greenbrier was hit with 16 earthquakes on February 16, 2011. The numbers have increased since the beginning of the month with more and more earthquakes.

And just a side note, do you believe HAARP may be responsible for some of the quakes or facilitating an end chaos result?

I noticed fracking keeps coming up in this conversation...

I live about an hour south of the DFW area in Texas. Up until about a year ago or so there was a lot of gas company activity going on in the area, which included fracking and building wells.

Some of you might already be aware of this but also around that time we began experiencing small earthquakes scattered around a 50 - 100 mile area. What's particularly unusual about this is the fact that quakes are very uncommon in this part of Texas. I've lived here all my life and there hasn't ever been any mention of any, however about the same time they start heavily fracking wells we suddenly start experiencing activity.

The gas/oil companies have since left the area and went further north, so I'm told. It always seemed odd to me that the quakes started and then ceased around the same time the companies were fracking around here.

Yes and they filled all of those seams/fractures with water/or not at all and water by the way does not make a very good lubricant tends to heat up causing pressure which in turn creates,, well u get the picture,

A year and a half ago I had invested in a company called Ecosphere Technologies Inc. thinking they were going to get a big contract to help clean up the BP oil spill. Within the 2 weeks of propaganda and media hypes of the company, there stock went up a few dollars and 2 insiders wanted to cash out and now the share have gone from $1.50 to now .48 pennies
Im still holding on that they can become something with investing in. They claim to suply cleaned Frack water for drilling. I will find out if they are operating in the same areas as the quakes. There web site is Ecosphere

Robin... in my short time here as an active member (although around much longer as a lurker)... I don't find any of your posts to come across as "fear mongering".

You put a lot of research and a lot of thought into the things that you share. You have proven yourself over and over. And with the help of others here that I see on a regular basis (westcoast, puterman, berkleygal) to name a few, through even more research and insight from everyone combined, the information that is put forth, is beyond amazing! And let me put it out there again... NO ONE within this group, are "fear mongers".

This is a phenomenal group of folks who gather together here on ATS, to share their research and thoughts, bounce ideas off of each other, and most importantly, are here to EDUCATE and INFORM and potentially HELP everyone who is reading in the background. Period.

So I for one would like to thank you, Robin... and the rest of you who share regularly... for all the hard work, time and energy you put into these issues. THANK YOU!!!


Applause Applause!!!!!!

The February 7, 1812 New Madrid quake was felt over 5 million square miles. It caused heavy shaking (6.0 magnitude equivalent) over 2-3 million square miles. The 1906 San Francisco earthquake (about 8.1-8.3 magnitude) only caused that over 50,000 square miles by comparison.

The quake was about 3 times more powerful than the 1964 Alaska quake, which measured 9.2.

In short, yes. You would definitely feel it big time where you are at. And just go ahead and ignore the skeptical debunker morons who will claim that what I am saying is wrong. They are too stupid to even realize that this quake happened before there was a Richter Scale and they actually are so gullible and uneducated that they believe a quake that caused 6 magnitude shaking over a thousand miles away was much smaller than quakes like the 1964 Alaska quake, the 1960 Chilean quake, the 2004 Indonesian quake, etc.

In short, they are clueless morons. So just ignore them and their nonsense. Bottom line is, New Madrid produces by far and away the biggest quakes on the planet. There is no other quake anywhere that can compare to it. Where you live, you would feel it for sure.

New Madrid is nothing remotely like any other fault line. It's not like a 9 hitting somewhere else where at that distance you would barely even feel it. Instead, at that distance it would strike with authority. Even if a 7.0 magnitude hit (which is very minor and weak for New Madrid) you would easily feel it hundreds of miles away.

If something hits New Madrid like what did in 1811-12, then the United States will cease to exist because the world economy will be destroyed, starting in the US.

Ty op for the thread!!!
Myself I live on the Missouri/Arkansas line...white river basin.
Lived here for almost 40 years now, and with limited midwestern edumacation.

Every spring a group of us get together in a place called Caney AR, just south/east of Yellville.
Anyways, reason for me mentioning this is, a few years back I took up some more schoolin.
Mostly for archeological type things "very very rich native american aritfact area" so some geology, lots of history...etc..etc I dropped out too...

From Geo 101 something bothered me from the get go...sand....there is sand...and I mean lots of sand in a small area of Arkansas, "it should not be there" and after more research, I started noticing sand, when found in places not ment to be...are most often tale tell...signs of EQ and or volcanic activity.
This is pretty much ground zero for the last swarm of quakes...the area of sand at least 20x20 mile area.
To be more specific to the area I can get GE coord later...but its 3 miles west of where Caney river runs into the Buffulo river.

I have a mutual friend there...they "Shipmans" own and opperate a camp ground and bed/breakfast type thing.

Last I spoke to them they had two of their 4 cottages rented out to gov't officials.....EQ specialists.
All the info. they can get from the gov't guy is that there is definately something worthy of further study here.


There is a fault line that runs from the Buffalo River through Baxter County, Arkansas. It was discovered in around 1990 I believe. It's believed to be an ancient fault line that has produced really big quakes in the past. It is part of the New Madrid system. It's one of the branch fault lines of New Madrid that are caused by the New Madrid quakes. Pretty much the same way that Southern California has so many branch fault lines breaking off of the San Andreas fault.

In fact, the area you are talking about is one of the most important areas to study New Madrid. Because the rock strata has detailed information about the past New Madrid quakes encoded in it. You can find it yourself if you want. Look in the rock layers for circa 2350 B.C., 300 A.D., 900 A.D., 1450 A.D, 1800 A.D.

It's not surprising at all that this area is being studied.

If you believe I'm being alarmist, just ask kennylee if he thinks so. Not long ago I was not ready to suggest there was something bigger brewing. I downplayed my concerns. And even wrote that I thought the four quakes back in 1811/1812 were probably not as big as some geologists believe.

How big?

7.3 magnitude.

But I don't think it will be just one quake. It will be a series of quakes.


The 2-7-1812 quake was magnitude 9.5. If you have not yet figured that out, then you have not done near the research into New Madrid that you think you have. I am sorry, but 7.3?

Uh, no. They were 9-9.5.

The "educated" members of the site like to debunk any threads that post truth. But they love the threads that have "facts" in them. My advice my friend is to keep a particular note of the names of the posters that push these "scientifically backed" threads.

These threads are full of purposely wrong information.

that is for sure so I think the History Channel may have that a bit wrong if that is what they were implying.

It is estimated around 7.5 IF it happens.


Everyone that lives in the New Madrid area.........PLEASE IGNORE EVERYTHING this poster says.

Hello,
I found your forum via Google search for Arkansas earthquakes. I'm located in Greenbrier, AR and I'm very worried about all this quake activity here today -- I guess I'm probably 3 or 4 miles from the epicenter. Am I wrong in thinking that all these small quakes are leading up to a BIG quake in this area?
This thread has been interesting and educational -- I knew nothing of the fracking process. It's sickening what they are doing above and below ground.

Anyway, thanks for the interesting forum/thread.

Kathy

There is no potential location in that area for Volcanism. That is an invented myth like so many others on the Internet.

When dealing with fear mongers and doom and gloom people you have to do your due diligence and research what they are saying using credible sources.



This map shows all known locations in the Continental US. There are none east of those shown.

However these earthquakes are most certainly related to the New Madras (New Madrid is common misnomer). Destructive earthquakes are possible in that area.


Hot Springs, Arkansas. Quit trying to trick people here.

Thank you all once again for paying attention and taking it seriously. I am gravely concerned. The more I put the piece together the more I feel I made the right decision and asked you all to join in. I have been very content to stay on the Yellowstone thread and the thread where I vent and rant. This is my first thread. And I've been out here since Jan 09. This is the first I felt I had something that you all should hear. And something about which I know a great deal. I have been obsessed with volcanoes for the last five years. Been watching Yellowstone intently for two years. And Arkansas just before the birds dropped dead from the air.

I started writing on the Yellowstone thread because I had a hypothesis and wanted to share my ideas. But more to the point, I needed a place to blow off steam. My writing became so maniacal I needed to direct it elsewhere. I didn't want to ruin the Yellowstone thread. But I had too many ideas and in my world, everything is connected. So I took them to place that I didn't think they wanted to go. So Puterman started a thread from me because I wanted him to make me a map so I could show anyone my circles. Long story and you'll need to do your own research. I'll point the way is all. It's called Robinesque Ruminations. I'm hesitant to guide you there because I didn't not censor myself and I just wrote anything I wanted. Unless you start at the begining, and you have some idea what I'm talking about in the Yellowstone thread, you won't understand much of it. It's best to ignore some of it until you have context. I want to guide you there because I was way ahead of the curve and the media when it came to the bird and fish kills in Bebee on New Year's Day. I had already had my eye on Arkansas because I am obsessed with swarms. I have a hypthesis about the events. And I shared them and some bloggers even ran with my story. You'll find that on the Robinesque thread. Many of the questions people are asking have been answered in my previous writings.

I knew there was something brewing in Arkansas yesterday morning. I posted it on Puterman's QuakeWatch. I was going to start a thread last night but said to hell with it and went to bed. Sleep is important. But I could not remain silent after I saw the webicorders dancing this morning. I knew this was going to be a big cluster. I still haven't counted all the tiny ones. This reminds of the time I predicted the swarm at Yellowstone. Sometimes I get a gut instinct and can't figure out where it's coming from. But it tells me to watch for certain signs. And I don't mean prophetic signs. I mean weather. Frequency of quakes in relation to type of fault zone. And the moon. My understanding of swarms is focus on the water. The cycle of water. Someone noted a strange change in the water-table. The smell of sulfur could be sulfur-dioxide gas. I'm not a chemist, but I believe that's one of the gases given off with gas production in it's natural state. This is a troubling sign because witnesses from the 1800's reported strange vapours with a sulfer smell.

Trust me. This story is all about water. Water in sand. The geysers from reprts. The rain saturating soils. Shifting soils. The aquifer full and lubricating faults. Add in the fracking and you have them pumping millions of litres/gallons of water into the ground. Then pumping the old salty water back down into the earth with injection wells- disposal wells which are known to cause quakes. The moon and tides. This soil will ebb and flow. The moon could also be pulling the water up through the faults and if it is infused into a slippery clay, then you got grease. Lubricated faults and earthquakes.

I'll post my Robinesque thread. The bird story is part way down on page four.
You know where to find the Yellowstone thread. Check December 28 2009 for my prediction which was validated on January 15th, just as the eclipse's shadow left the face of the earth. I scold the YVO.

I will try to answer specific questions. The mid-continental post I have on page one is very good. And the NY Times. article.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. For taking this seriously. Because it is. That's how I'm approaching this. I don't want you to listen to me. I was content to ramble on my pet threads. I need you to listen to me. Because the people in the region need to find my research. The fracking causes the quakes. Almost forgot. There is a Carbon Capture Plant in Arkansas as well. Haven't got all the particulars on that. It was brought up during the bird hysteria.

That's it. Memphis, Tennessee and the region are in peril.

I don't like making predictions. Believe it or not.
But I will. I don't know if the big one will strike on March 19th, but I believe there will be a quake in the region which could support my hypothesis. It will be a full moon and at it's closest perigee for the year. Something my happen that night. Maybe if nothing happens you won't have to worry about what I say.

Did the moon have anything to do with this swarm? I don't know. That's because I have an alternative hypothesis concern the timing, but that can wait.

And please forgive any loony writing you may find. My expression knews no bounds. Although I have learned about limits and on this thread I am trying to be disciplined and focused.

www.abovetopsecret.com...

Here's a video of an experiment I didn't to simulate my hypothesis regarding Yellowstone. Just for fun.

PuterMan, why are you incorrectly informing the public that geologists state that injection does not create earthquakes. Geologists and seismologists know that high pressure injection can and have caused earthquakes, this was proven by the USGS decades ago when the USGS tried to prove that it was a false accusation by a geologist in Colorado. Furthermore the list "Induced Earthquakes Bibliography" that UtahRosebud put on the internet is not fake and is easily proven to not be fake by simply tapping on the ones in the color of "Red", www.nyx.net...

Because he is an obvious plant. No one should listen to anything he says. He should have been banned long ago already.

To the OP - Thank you for this thread. I'm near Yellowstone, and for the past two weeks, my family and I have been riding out quakes ranging from 3.0 - 4.5 - 5.0. The interesting thing is, most of them (in the past two weeks) have been occurring in the late evening to early morning hours. Another interesting thing to note is, they have started to remove information initially recorded, and now, they are not reporting some quakes at all. For awhile I thought I was losing my mind, and starting to wonder if it was really happening.

For example:
Last week on wed, I was sitting at the computer and right around 1 am I experienced an intense jolt. Shortly after it felt as if someone was rocking my house gently side to side. My mother in law phoned and asked if I felt that. The husband got up and checked and sure enough, a 5 happened. I went back later to screen capture it, and the information had been removed.

Earlier this evening while watching the tube, we felt as if someone came up behind us and jumped real hard in our living room. Got up to check and nothing was recorded, and as of now, nothing recorded.

We are experiencing these off and on in intensity and frequency and they don't want anyone to know about it.

A couple weeks ago when Kaku went on the morning news to talk about Yellowstone, my family started asking us to move out. Where will I go? I've lived on the coastal area and dealt with quakes. Lived in the midwest and dealt with floods and tornadoes. Lived in the south and dealt with hurricanes. Where can one go really, to get away from any of it. I figure when it's my time it's my time. I've had a good run.
