Because, there is lots of microsiemic noise showing up on Arkansas's webicorders at the moment. It's increasing. And oddly enough, some of you are feeling anxious and describing physical sensations. I don't know if it's linked. But it's an observation nonetheless. Here's the part I can't avoid wondering about. I'm seeing an increase in microsiesmic noise at Yellowstone. It's not dramatic. But it's definately there now, and there has been no evidence of it at Yellowstone for quite some time. The rise is microsiemic noise at Yellowstone and the noise seen on the Arkansas webicorders is the same. Whatever is causing it, it's affecting both Yellowstone and Arkansas. Tides? Or groundwater? I'm not going to say Yellowstone is active. It's been really quiet over that last many weeks. But I've noticed a slight uptick in the activity over the last day or so. It's really insignificant. But it's something.


Maybe it's wind-related noise? It has been windy here the past couple of days.




Maybe those in the area shouldn't watch the webicorders. Those lines, I think, can make you sea-sick. And anxious. I know you want to understand what's happening under your feet. But don't let any undue stress make you suffer even more. I almost didn't want to post my observations. I don't want to stress you out even more.


I typically check the webicorders after I feel movement here. Yesterday afternoon when I felt the slight movement while sitting at the restaurant in Conway, I decided to check the webicorder and kinda freaked out when I saw this
on my little blackberry screen.

Honestly, I'm in a state of, the more I know, the less I understand. I'm assuming the WHAR station had a glitch. I've seen all sorts of glitches on Yellowstone's webicorders over the last two years. Most of it is explainable and it wasn't changed by any real quake activity in the park. If you remember, WHAR had a problem when the larger 4.7M showed up. They have recentley added a strongmotion graph. I'm pretty certain this problem was technical.

But the confusing part is that both you and Susan have felt movements and yet there is no strong signature on the webicorders. I'm not saying I understand this. I don't. But please keep on document it because it may be explainable at some point when new information becomes available.

Do you have an exact address on the injection well In Greenbrier? And the one in Guy?

Just loose ends on my end. There's just been so much informatioin provided here I'm lost in the wilderness. I will check our collection. I finally looked over the whole thing and realized how much there is. I need to look for on thing in particular becuase I've lost my link. Usually I don't like being overwhelmed. But in the case, the mountain of evidence is needed.

I'm gonna start babbling if I don't stop. I hope it's quiet all day.

At least you guys make me feel like I'm not just going nuts. I really just want to understand and stay prepared while keeping my family safe. And for now our compasses all point N but we are up here in the corner of the state on higher ground.

That`s why I like using GEE. I can load it and go about my work, glancing at it if I feel a rumble or see movement of pics etc. on the wall. If it`s "flatlining", I know to check it for confirmation that`s about to follow. Kind of like an EKG monitor, only without the alarms. And having visual "back up" is important, cause it may take hours or days for USGS to post. Being prepared is important, but being able to have a "reality check" with solid evidence is important during events that are out of our control.... keeps us sane


Forgot to add that I trust personal observations from those of us in the "ground zero" zone way more than devices or official "rulings" ( "if its not on the seismo, it didn`t happen"). If we are hearing it, and lots of us are feeling the stuff at the same time, its real .

I know I have become more sensitive with regard to tiny movements/jiggles since all the quakes began here -- feeling the small/gentle movements that I normally wouldn't have even noticed or paid attention to. This gentle movement is quick (fraction of a second) and doesn't shake or rattle or cause any sounds and wouldn't even be noticed by me if I wasn't sitting still at that very moment. I don't automatically attribute it to an earthquake or seismic activity - could be vibrations from heavy traffic or some other unknown activity....I don't know...and I rarely have even mentioned them here (maybe once or twice) since they are so insignificant & fleeting.
There has not been any prolonged shaking or rattling associated with a measurable earthquake other than the 4.7 which shook/vibrated for 4-5 seconds. I don't exaggerate/embellish -- tending more to understate than overstate.
Yesterday at the restaurant, I felt small movements so I checked the webicorder and saw that mess & freaked. No doubt what I felt was probably just wind or traffic-related...and being overly-sensitive now, I notice stuff I normally would not. And I really hate it...I wish I could go back to being blissfully unaware of what was or wasn't going on under my feet...I slept better then (and I didn't leave half-finished margaritas on the table).

What I felt this morning was definitely a small jolt-like feeling that I also heard (walls/ceiling noise). Since nothing showed up on the webicorders, I'm guessing it was caused by strong gusts of wind...don't know what else it could have been...it definitely wasn't an earthquake.

I don't know how far the vibrations and shaking extend from the quakes here in Guy/Greenbrier -- there have been several times when I've looked at the felt responses on USGS and was puzzled that intensity reports were sometimes higher (IV) far away from the epicenter than right at the epicenter (III).

Good Morning Everyone, Beautiful Day, GEE is back up and running and I know we had a 2.8 and a couple of smaller quakes, but it's a gorgeous day outside regardless. I was up all night delivering puppies and she had 6.

I found it Robin these are the two injection wells that were shut down.

Chesapeake Operating, Inc. to immediately cease all injection operations in its SRE 8-12 1-17 SWD Well in Sec. 17-T8N-R12W located off Highway 285 at Woolly Hollow.

Clarita Operating LLC to immediately cease all injection operations at its Wayne L. Edgemon No. 1 SWD Well in Sec. 6-T7N-R12W in Guy off Highway 25. The application will be heard by the AOGC at a special hearing at 10:30 a.m. Friday at the Arkansas Game and Fish Commision, 2 Natural Resources Drive, Little Rock.

They stopped injecting those 2 wells but were those for disposal only? Are they still drilling the gas in all the other spots and if so what are they doing with all the toxic waste water now?

I'm not sure what they are doing with it, there are 5 more injections wells from my understanding in operation. I do know that my house stopped swaying so badly after they stopped the injections on these two wells and the quakes have slowed down tremendously.

Over the years I have heard of studies that show the most severe earthquakes on the New Madrid fault zone occur during the winter. During the winter, the mississippi, ohio and wabash rivers are usually low. But, the most significant earthquakes I can remember in my lifetime, have occured in the spring or summer. In the Spring, the rivers are typically flooded and in summer and winter the rivers are lower. The last decent size earthquake was in April 2008. I do not recall if the rivers were flooded when this earthquakes occured. The rivers are WAY above flood stage right now and the local fault zones here been quiet.
It is really just my theory that rivers ARE the fault lines. We all know the New Madrid is uniquely different because it is not part of a techtonic plate and the fault is not visible at the ground surface, in comparison to the San Andreas fault that is so remarkable visible at the surface.
Maybe the water acts as a pad to any seismic activity and keeps it stable. But.... These are just my amateur observations because I am certainly not an expert.
The San Andreas fault is a natural wonder being so remarkably visible at the groound surface, and looking like a big empty river. It is only my theory that the Mississippi, Ohio and Wabash rivers are a visible fault line filled with water. All the epicenters of earthquake activity in the New Madrid and Wabash Valley seismic zone alway occur along the rivers.
Also the earthquake that occured in Kokomo Indiana on New Years Eve 2010, occured along the Wabash River (during the winter) way up in northern Indiana and not a known seismicly active area, but... rumors are, they are drilling for natural gas in the Kokomo Indiana area. hmmm? interesting to say the least.
So my conclusion.... drillling for gas and even possibly blasting for coal along the rivers or near a seismic zone can cause earthquakes. This is not a new theory. This was actually mentioned back in 2003 when an earthquake epicenter was located along the Wabash River, near a large underground coal mine in southern Illinois. This mine, The Wabash Mine near Mt. Carmel is now closed. It is all a mystery and I am not a scientist. Just been making these observations throught my life.

The big question is; Can an earthquake be man-made? In my opinion, the answer is a resounding Yes.

I have nothing against the energy industry, as it is necessary to our economy, but those in the Energy Industry need to be Very Careful. As for the coal mines in my area, they drill and blast daily but continue to retain the highest safety standards and the miners have had no significant accidents. The seismic zones have been quiet for 3 years. (except for the commotion in Arkansas). Hopefully the oil companies in Arkansas will follow this example and continue with their caution. We can only pray that they continue to do the Right Thing.

Please pray for Japan today.

"Can earthquakes be manmade?"

Absolutely, I don't think there's any question,, the only question I have is ARE they still and to what extent. In their simplest form you sipply have manmade blasts that rock the earth, think on the most simple level what happens when somebody is blasting at the local quarry and how it can affect structures around it, then think at the most severe level where one had nuclear or EM type weapons employed in 'tests' or perhaps used in *warfare*.

I'm reposting this post which was on the compass anomoly thread for those who haven't hit the link yet, hope it's ok to do that because I think it's very relative to this thread.

Quote from article at link:

In 1966, Professor Gordon J.F. MacDonald was associate director of the Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics at the University of California, Los Angeles, a member of the US President’s Science Advisory Committee, and later a member of the US President’s Council on Environmental Quality.

He published papers on the use of environmental-control technologies for military purposes. MacDonald made a revealing comment: “The key to geophysical warfare is the identification of environmental instabilities to which the addition of a small amount of energy would release vastly greater amounts of energy.”

World-renowned scientist MacDonald developed ideas for using the environment as a weapon system and he contributed to what was, at the time, only in the wildest dream of a futurist. When he wrote his chapter, “How To Wreck The Environment,” for the book Unless Peace Comes, he was not kidding around. In it he describes the use of weather manipulation, climate modification, polar ice cap melting or destabilisation, ozone depletion techniques, earthquake engineering, ocean wave control and brain wave manipulation using the planet’s energy fields.

He speculated these types of weapons would be developed and, when used, would be virtually undetectable by their victims. Is HAARP one such weapon?

I came across this video which is supposedly the sound fracking makes ( I said supposedly LOL) I am searchjing for a better source....but it sounds very much like the "rumble" doesn't it? Or is it just me? It sounds a lot like what I have heard

I found it very interesting that the Mississippi , Amazon and Niger Rivers can call the Mid Atlantic Ridge their creator.

The link to the article below explains it in the geology portion . What do you think ?

Interesting, no it doesn't sound like the rumble and the quakes that I've heard, to me it is similar to the sounds that puterman did when he grabbed a seed file a few of weeks back to listen to it checking for harmonics as there were some waves in the seismo's that were strange. I wonder if he could do a comparison of them, there is a radio playing in the background on one of them and I think you'd have to be fairly close to hear this. When I went exploring the other day I put a video and it's under my ATS profile from one of the well sites and you can hear some noise of the pumps I thought on that but I can't see the video and don't know how to make it work. In fact I can't see any of the photos I posted on ATS and I don't know why or how to fix it. I emailed them about it, but no one has responded yet to give me a fix that I know of.

I'm sorry Susan.....I meant the loud rumble that people have been hearing all over....I thought someone brought it up here. There are a couple of threads on it. Like the one in Florida. I'm sorry if I posted it in the wrong thread, I'm in a rush today. I knew you talked a lot about fracking, and you were the first person I thought of. I heard that very loud rumble, and was trying to find the source.....
