Just FYI, I woke up dizzy this morning, and now I've got a headache. This is noteworthy because this is the second time I ever remember being dizzy when I wasn't sick, and I hardly ever get headaches.
In fact, the last time I was dizzy, I also had a severe headache, and that was around the last time I remember there being a significant swarm of quakes in the Arkansas area.
Now, the only reason I'm noting this is because, I'm located a little bit south of the St. Lawrence, which could be a continuation of the New Madrid fault. So, I want to put it out there, just in case. Especially considering how many people from the States felt the Japan quakes coming, even being on the opposite side of the plate.

I preached this morning, and I actually mentioned to someone that, if I fell over, they could prop me up and I'd keep talking
Now, I'm off to preach again, and the dizziness is combined with a headache. So, we'll see...

"due to the desportion of methane gases"

This statement could be used to as a partial definiton of fracking.

Fracking: a process using water pressure to manufacturing microquakes which cause natural gas to migrate out of the rock.

rockburst= fracturing

Just wondering if this is correct. James Lee Witt was on CNN this am doing an interview with Candy Crowley and said that there had been a 5.6 or 5.8 quake in the Guy/Greenbriar area sometime during the recent swarm. Is that true? I thought the 4.7 was the most intense (felt that one) but haven't been following super closely.

Well it looks to be building again. If you notice the "static" or "Interferance" building. Its starting to get thick again.
It has been doing this befroe each period of unrest. It typicaly builds to a 3.? then subsides.

The largest quake was 4.7 magnitude on Feb. 27.

At the moment I am trying to calm myself down. I have been debating whether I should speculate on what I am seeing. I agree there seems to be something building.

Two reasons. The regular intervals of quakes around the 2 magnitude range. And now there are more and more smaller ones under 1.5 magnitude.

They've just listed another 2.4.

As far as I could tell from CNN, the power of the Arkansas swarms are being lessened.

Also wanted to add that today I am extremely ill feeling... almost like an altitude sickness...

Coupled with today's magnetosphere activity (never seen it like that before)

I would say the big one on the New Madrid Fault Zone could be anytime from now until the SUPERMOON on the 19th.

Dear Moderators,

Please leave yahfearing's post. Although 99% of it was off-topic. They did mention the Mississippi. I would rather have it posted once, than to have it posted and removed repeatedly. Just accept that I'm a sucker for free speech.

Dear yahfearing, I've requested that your post stays. It's obvious you are passionate. Please start your own thread and express your views there. I too felt the need to alert my fellow beings to a danger. That's why I started this thread. Please do not post again. And if they do remove your post, please don't repost. I tried my best to let your message stay. So respect that and please don't distract this thread again.

Robin... please do share. We love you and we absolutely appreciate your thoughts and contributions. Worst case, nothing happens. And that my friend, is not a bad thing at all.


ETA: I wanted to suggest that it might be a good idea for Sunflowerstar to start up a brand new thread that could be the main source for all of the links that she has accumulated. We can all head over there, S&F and subscribe to it and she could manage that one, adding to it (along with the rest of us), updating it regularly. Then come back here with an announcement for "updates" with pointers back to that thread.

Just a thought.

My very best, non-expert, purely spectator guess, would be that your feeling some of the waves from Japan, or other quakes going on around the world. In my above post, I linked an article stating that Japan has moved by 8 feet. Once again, I am on the opposite end of the spectrum from expert, but if there is that much movement over there, it's going to affect things everywhere. The Gulf of California has had several decently sized quakes since Japan started up. And as far as the USGS site goes.. they are under reporting things. I have even seen large events posted, then later gone without a trace. If something happened by you that was less than a 2, they probably won't report it anyways (because under normal circumstances most people don't feel it, so they think they can keep in all 'hush-hush.')


Thank you , This never occurred to me with such distance between Japan & the US but I had read about the movement of both Japan & the Earth on it's Axis , This does makes sense .

I am thinking many things. Read back to find out how it's evolved. Right now I am glad there is no microquakes this second. That will change in a few minutes.

I don't like the constant 2 magnitude quakes. I don't like all the smaller ones that follow them. And I don't like the increasing microsiesmic noise.

I breathing and keeping my lid on tight. At some point in the very near future I may start running around like chicken little. But not yet.

I am however confindent there will be a quake today that is 3.5+. Maybe two. Then I hope it calms back down.

Don't be surprised if you see one nearing the 4.7 max in this series.

For those of you who did not see James Lee Witt on CNN this morning, discussing the NMSZ... here is the transcript of his interview.


CROWLEY: The magnitude of this quake is hard to comprehend. A U.S. Geological Survey scientist told CNN that the quake moved the main island of Japan eight feet and shifted the earth on it's axis nearly four inches. Here to discuss how countries like Japan can manage national disasters, James Lee Witt, former FEMA director and now CEO of a crisis management firm that worked on the reconstruction after the Indian ocean tsunami.

Mr. Witt, thank you for joining us. Right now in Japan, the essential work is about trying to find people. What are they up against and what are you -- what are they worried about at this point? I have to guess it's running out of time.

JAMES LEE WITT, FRM. FEMA DIRECTOR: Well, the first 72 hours is really important. But of course, search and rescue teams that are in there now and the Japanese military and American military, those teams going in there with the dogs, the biggest concern is debris and also buildings that have partially collapsed. The safety of those teams, you know, they have engineers with them. And they will be looking at that as well. But also trying to get as many people out that they can when they find them.

CROWLEY: Now, we are told over and over again that Japan, there's no country on earth that exceeds Japan in its preparedness for earthquakes, first of all, because they have so many of them, but as well for emergencies. And yet we look and we are looking at some devastating numbers here.

What is the lesson? Is it that you cannot prepare for anything this big or is it that Japan was not quite there in terms of preparedness? What's your take?

WITT: Well, you know, Candy, after the Kobe earthquake, President Clinton sent me over there. What happens, Japanese government has some the most stringent seismic earthquake codes as anyone. But the thing of it is in Japan as well as the United States we have inherited a traditional stock of buildings that were built before the new seismic codes and getting those buildings retrofitted is to me at least life safety is very important.

But they have buildings, as well as we do, that are not up to the type of code they need to be.

CROWLEY: Well then let me bring you here to the U.S. because I think in general, the American people look at what's happening in Japan and it seems like something that could happen to Japan, but not something that could happen here in the U.S. it's just such a huge magnitude. What are the possibilities here in the U.S.? Because I know some of this must have kept you up late at night as FEMA director.

WITT: Yeah, it did. And the thing of it is here in the United States, particularly California, Oregon and Washington state, and even in Arkansas, and even in the city of New York has earthquake fault, so 1811, 1812 in Arkansas, the New Madrid fault, we had an 8.0 earthquake. It rang the bells on the churches in Boston. And right now we found a new fault in Arkansas, they call it the Guy fault, that just recently had a 5.8 and they're having like hundreds a day of smaller quakes. And that fault line's getting bigger.

But it was an unknown fault line. And we wouldn't have the tsunami possibility unless it's on the west coast and out in the ocean which could create one, but in Japan and here, they also have all of the warning systems, the buoys out there that would identify a tsunami very quickly. And they could evacuate.

But in Japan right now, that's massive debris and destruction. And it's going to take a while.

CROWLEY: Well, you bring up the New Madrid fault lines. Do you think -- are you confident that should there be -- and I think a lot of people believe the New Madrid at some point is going to lead to a big earthquake. Are we ready? Are the buildings secure? I mean, what is the potential here? What are we learning in Japan that applies here?

WITT; Well, back when I was director in Arkansas for President Clinton, then governor, we passed legislation for seismic building codes in Arkansas. And one of the most important things was to build the bridges that would be earthquake resistant. But we still have an awful lot of buildings that were built before these codes were put in place. And so that concerns me a great deal. Schools, you know, older buildings, public buildings, that were built out of concrete blocks. And you know, they would be in danger.

CROWLEY: James Lee Witt, thank you so much for your time. We appreciate it this morning.

Can someone give a summary of where we are at, at this point?

Robin said to go back and see how things evolved to now, but I seriously dont have enough time to go through 182 pages of stuff.

Are we seeing this stuff slowing done? Is that good or bad?
Are we thinking something bigger is on the way?

It was slowing down. I meant only go back a few pages to get the drift. There have been 7 quakes 2+magnitude. One not listed yet. With many more under 2 magnitude. The swarm seems to be intensifying again.

Yes, I think there is a good chance a larger quake will occur today.

As always, I hope I'm wrong.

Please share what you are thinking with us - I am not
much in the mood for posting the past few days, have
certainly been doing a lot of reading.

I feel absolutely hideous today with a very rare large headache, left side of my face hurting, ears full, feeling stupid. I have done nothing in the past 3-5 days to bring this on. This whole past week I have felt "off".

Noticing that the outside door is "off' by a bit, a window seal has popped, and there are cracks along the seams of drywall in our new addition.

Hens not laying and hunkering down.

My dogs keep pawing at their ears and are restless. I can't put my finger on it, but I have absolutely no reason to feel bad (personal life and health great), yet I am incredibly apprehensive.

I am a long-time Hawaii Volcano watcher and for the past week, the volcanoes have been quiet and are deflating. They do this when pressure is being released somewhere else.
