Hey thanks for that one too. I had not heard about that one.

I think that what needs to be said here is that while some of us do not live in the NMFZ, that does not mean that we are not just as concerned about the issue at hand. I live in a fault zone too, the Lewiston Escarpment...and there is fracing going on around here too. Also, please understand that while the folks down there who are posting and contributing here are going through hell...and I do mean hell, that does not mean that others, like me, do not have family in that area who will be directly effected by an event happening down there as well.

I do not post on this thread often at all, because on this 'conspiracy website', geo-issues is not my field of expertise, however I have followed it from page 1 to now page 123. But it is for people like Robin, Puterman and others and for their expertise and willingness to share it I thank you a great deal. As for my part, I've done 2 things with the knowledge you have provided....

1. I take the fantastic links provided and send them off to family and friends in that area so they can be informed, prepared and possibly enable them to take action where they felt helpless to do so before

2. I've located several local grass roots organizations dealing with the fracing issue, one of which I have started to become involved with.

So while it may seem that there is some bickering from time to time I think that we need to let off a little steam every now and again.... but we all understand that we are here for the same reasons. We are scared. We are concerned. We want to learn....and we want to act.

Cheers

The dirt in northwestern Texas is red. I grew up in OK east of Lubbock and we used to get really huge, red dust storms.


Look up Red Dirt Country. It is a style of country music similar to Southern Rock, but unique to Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, and Missouri. That is my old stomping grounds as well, and I love the red dirt!

More on topic: I am going to try my hand at a prediction. I say this Central Arkansas Quake stuff is going to result in something large between March 15th and April 30th. No psychic ability, just my take after reading all the related threads, and the FEMA stuff, and hearing reports from locals that wildlife has moved out of the area. No wolves, coyotes, birds, dogs, etc. The people who I know in the area are really spooked out by all of this, and I think it is escalating quickly. And I have been watching this unfold since June of last year. That is when I first heard mention of odd Earthquakes in Arkansas, and new Earthquakes in NorthWest Arkansas related to a newly discovered faultline.

Thanks for the link on the Red Dirt - I did see a lot of red clay in Georgia as well.

I think I read March 15 or the 18th that the moon would be closest to earth. Should be a time frame to watch.

I live in western NC and doubt that we here would be directly affected by damage from an EQ on the NMFZ, but EVERYONE will be affected in one way or another. Whether it be death or injuries to loved ones, there will be massive shortages and inabilities to transfer food and other goods, travel, shortages, etc. So yes everyone should be thinking of what could and would happen should a large event takes place, regardless of where it is or how it happens. And yes it makes me angry the the government and the oil and gas companies put the lives and livelihoods of so many in jeopardy.

Okay, sorry but I came across this forum and am really, really interested in this kind of thing. I love near Fort Smith, Arkansas, and felt the 4.7 earthquake a few nights ago. I had never, EVER felt one of these earthquakes before. It was a wake-up call.

I think I may have some information that could be useful. I've read most of this thread, and "volcanic activity" keeps popping up. I will have to agree that I think this is a huge possibility. Hot Springs, Crowley's Ridge, our diamond mine, the smell of sulfur (which, by the way, I used to have well water and it was such a strong sulfur smell in that water, it's unreal). People keep smelling sulfur here. "Rotten Eggs", they say, and it has been linked to volcanic activity.

But there's something more. I found an article last year on the internet that blew my mind. Sure, it's just an old article, but it's entirely possible.

www.surfingtheapocalypse.net...

There are more links, many, many more. Read the story in that newspaper, people around here have heard about this happening, but we all thought it was a tall tale, nope, there's a newspaper article on it.

I live not far AT ALL from this "volcano" and it's nowhere near the earthquakes that have been happening, but that means nothing. I just wanted to throw that out there.

I think fracking has sped up this earthquake process, but mark my words, I think volcanic activity plays a part.

While I was looking up info on the 1811-12 quake I found this little nugget from a US geological survey with a possible connection to the red dirt:




The key evidence for large earthquakes that occurred in the past are sand blows that formed when under¬ground sand and water erupted to the surface as a result of violent shaking. Numerous large sand blows over a wide area were created by strong ground shaking during the 1811-12 earthquakes. Similarly large, widespread, and abundant prehistoric sand blows were produced over the same area during ground shaking from previous clusters of large earthquakes around A.D. 1450, A.D. 900, and 2350 B.C. The sizes and areal distribution of the prehistoric sand blows indicate that the older earthquakes were similar in location and magnitude to the 1811-12 shocks.


Link to full article

The blowing sands theory from Texas does have a logical feel to it, but I always think it is best to analyze all the data available.

I've given the volcano aspect lots of thought. I only came to ATS two years ago because of the Yellowstone thread. I've driven the folks that read that thread fits. I'm always wondering if there's a volcanic vent down there ready to erupt.

But I can't find enough evidence to support even my own ideas. I do know a bit about sulfur springs. I used to live near Niagara Falls. I used to drive a road called Sulfur Springs Road. I've even dug in a swamp to find the source of the spring on our property. The sulfer comes from shale. It's organic sulfur. The shale is in New York State. It's the type of shale that the fracking frackers are looking for.

The diamonds. This one had me intrigued. The diamonds are mostly likely formed very long ago. And there is a volcanic history in the area. But it's ancient. In fact, I stumble when I try to discount the old rift. The faulting in the area is explained by geologist as a rift that stopped suddenly before breaking apart the crust. Trust me. I even have an idea why it stopped. And I have a possible volcanic scenario, but it's a real stretch. Volcanic forces are at the heart of the issue. But, and I think, that the volcanic activity is long over.

It may be volcanic. If a volcano was coming back to life, there would be some unavoidable signs. Like ground deformation. A big rise of the ground. No one's yet found some GPS stuff. So there's no proof either way. Along with deformation, there may be cracks forming. I know there's one way up in Michigan. So I'm not saying it aint' connected, but it's a stretch again. So in the end it may be a giant rift ready to rip open the continent. But at the moment I'm see no strong evidence.

Let's say it is a volcano. Or a rift. Should they be fracking? Should they be injecting?

So the answer is that it's crazy to keep drilling and injecting. I know crazy when I see it. And drilling in Arkansas is insanity.

Robin mentioned the actual date a few pages back, but just to confirm, the closest perigee (ie closest close approach) to earth for our Moon this year will be on March 19 at 19:10 (UTC), within 1 hour of the "official" full moon time of 18:11 (UTC).

Here's a Lunar Perigee and Apogee Calculator for anyone who'd like to check any data/dates for full moons, new moons, perigees and apogees for any year.


Regards,

Mike

Arkansas Suspends Drilling of Injection Wells after Earthquake Swarm

I understand that Arkansas has volcanic history that is completely ancient, but if they are just NOW finding faults and starting to investigate and research Arkansas, the fracking and earthquakes could bring some of it up.

However, the ancient volcanic activity isn't what worries me - it's the sulfur smell, sudden earthquakes, the animals acting funny (especially in certain areas) and then the possible volcano eruption in the 1850's.

Since I live near that volcano, (I will call it that for now since all I have is hearsay and an old newspaper article) I can go investigate it myself. What should I look for?

There are about 6 mountains in that area, so I'm not completely sure which one it would be. Dry Creek, I could definitely look at, but then again I'm not sure which part to explore, because mountains are beside different areas of it.

Remember the Reports from some on this Thread,that they felt as if the Ground is moving side to side? Its comes down to the Reason that maybe the Magma is pushin up trough looser Ground,practically pushing the Earth aside,unlike in Yellowstone,where the Ground is moving up and down. And those Earhquakes may be due to some Spots when there is any resistance for the Magma or the Earth.

Hard to explain...i would draw something if i had the Skill to show you what im thinking about

That have only suspended the drilling of NEW wells, the wells in operation are still being used.

From a February article in the New York Times...

Mr. Ausbrooks and his colleagues were in Fort Smith to present their data to the staid men of the commission, who were considering an extension of the one-month moratorium on new disposal wells in about 600 square miles around Guy (the seven existing wells in the area remain active, though the gas companies are required to submit regular operational reports).

Look at oneisone's comment at the bottom. They are still injecting fluids. The article is horrible. I thought the same thing when I first read it. The is no new orders for the government of Arkansas.

They want to wait 6 months when I study will have a conclusion. Until then, it's business as usual.

Also, just an interesting tidbit (I've been researching):

The dead fish in Arkansas occurred just MILES away from the possible volcano eruption of the 1800's. There has been speculation of a crack releasing gas that killed the birds/fish...well was there an earthquake in the days/hours leading up to the fish and birds dying? Could the earth have released a gas that affected these species?

Also, I found this: books.google.com... hl=en&ei=oaduTen6L8L48Ab1nKj6Dg&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=7&ved=0CD0Q6AEwBjgK#v=onepage&q=volcano%20arkansas%20gazette&f=false

Indians were very bonded with the earth, could they have noticed something we didn't?

That's good to know. Has the average size remained the same as well?


Yes, things are pretty status quo there. Well, as normal as having dozens of earthquakes a day can be. Last year, I was passing through town and had to fill up my gas tank. I asked the guy behind the counter what it was like to live with earthquakes every day and he looked at me like I was nuts. He said he doesn't even feel them. Crazy. But I bet that guy felt the 4+ the other day.

By the way, I follow this area pretty closely because of this article that appeared in the New York Times back in 2009. Back then I was curious if the company pulled out because they feared a major quake--but that hasn't happened...yet. Interesting article though, yeah?

I do share you curiousity about the volcanic possiblities. I'm still stuck in Enola. Trying to figure that whole thing out.

Oneisone is fast, beat me to the punch.

The sulfur smell is concerning if it's getting worse. Like I said, it's probably from old sediment shale rocks. This again to point back to fracking. If the fracking and injection are causing gases to migrate. They could be migrating into the watertable. With the massive amounts of rain and snow already in the system, this could be flushing more sulfur toward the surface. The smells could be eminating from the soils themselves. As they evaporate, they could be forming a haze. Like ozone.

Honestly, I can't point at a volcano, but I wouldn't be surprised if one suddenly becomes active or the rift starts opening up.


Oh, and Shenon, yes it may be magma moving around down there. But again, I got no evidence. The more likely reason for the motion is water. Water moves very easily. And we know there's lots and lots down there. The only ones who seem to think there isn't enough is the guys injecting more water down the dry wells.
