Now I lay me down to sleep....

Nothing but positive thoughts everyone!
Hopefully we'll hear from Susan in the morning!

We had rotation here in PA this afternoon, and now it looks like this one is going to come through in the middle of the night. Our radar is down, but the national map is still up. I'll be sleeping with the TV on tonight!
Looks like the whole eastern US has a target on it! Never saw such a wide, long line of red!

Stay safe everybody. Guardian Angel wings over everyone!!!

Update....according to this article, two confirmed dead and about 50 unaccounted for (but presumed they just aren't able to reach them). The two named were NOT Susan. Here are bits of the article and link:

Update: 12:46 a.m.: Arkansas Department of Emergency Management spokesman Tommy Jackson says two people died Monday in Vilonia, where a tornado likely ripped through the area. Vilonia Fire Chief Keith Hillman says between 50 and 60 people remained unaccounted late Monday night, but he expected many simply weren't reachable. He said he didn't expect the toll to rise significantly. Hillman says fire crews wrapped up work overnight and planned to resume Tuesday morning.

A severe storm “wiped out” an area of downtown Vilonia about 7:30 p.m. Monday, city officials said. Stephan Hawks, a Faulkner County spokesman, says one person died in the town, where a path of damage stretches three miles wide and 15 miles long, The Associated Press reported late Monday.

“It’s just a mess here,” Mayor James Firestone said. “There are trees and power lines down everywhere. Highway 64 is closed. An 18-wheeler is turned over. Only emergency vehicles are being let in. And we need them.”

Lord, my heart goes out to everyone in the town of Vilonia. Make Susan safe and that she has what she needs to get through this trying time. Hold back the levee on the Black River in Poplar Bluff Missouri. Keep our friends and family safe during these trials of Spring. Move that water safely through the aquifers because we can never be ready enough for what water can do with the damage already there. Make us instruments of information and physical help as we are able. In Jesus name I pray. You will be done, Amen.

Sometimes all we have left is to pray for peace and love to be extended to our fellow man and women.
Stay safe Susan, Buttercookie, and all our friends.

Maybe it does have?

Some may not be able or ready to contemplate it, but I might suggest carefully reviewing the weather satellite maps.

I'm a friend of Susan's. Her daughter replied back to me on facebook. Susan is safe! All she said was she is without power, so I'm hoping her damage was minimal.

Thank you!!!!!! Best news I`ve had in a VERY long time!!!! Now I can go back outside and start the cleanup here, which is not that bad.... just looks like every tree in Haskell donated a piece of itself to decorate my yard. No big deal.

More storms to come today.

Stay safe !

Thank You! That is good news.

After reading what I have and seeing video from Vilonia, at least this is some good news.

My heart goes out to all the folks there.

You're welcome! I was worried sick last night. We have a puppy from Susan, and she let me know about the thread here on the quakes. I've been following along, because I live on the New Madrid Fault line.

Her daughter is keeping watch on the upcoming storms for Susan, since she is without power. They are expecting another strong cell to move through in about 4 hours. So please keep her in your thoughts. Jim Cantore (Weather Channel) has chosen to locate in Little Rock today, so that's an indicator that he expects more extreme weather in that area again today.

I'll try to keep you all updated if I see anything else coming from her Facebook page. Sorry if it's off-topic, but considering how dedicated Susan has been to the quakes/fracking, I thought this would be the best place to post.

Just popping on to check in on this thread. It is a terrible situation down in Arkansas and all I can hope for is that we hear from Susan soon.

I have been out of the loop for a bit. I just read on the glad to hear Susan is safe.

Continuing prayers and thoughts for everyone in that area...stay safe!

Wanted to share that on our local radio station that has a lost and found pet patrol they have had a huge amount of lost dogs this morning. Not sure if it is simply because of the flooding rains or because something else is about to happen as lost pets sometimes coincide with EQs.

We are in the area above Springfield mo.

Also question about all this flooding from our Mid west positions, will this cause the chance for earthquakes?

Glad to hear Susan is safe. Prayers and good thoughts to everyone.

In light of the way the earthquakes and the heavy weather are targeting the area, it is easy to get paranoid. I was telling my husband that sometimes it feels like the MSM would like the noisy complainers out of the way. Two months ago the local weatherman on Fox News called me a tin hatter because I sent in a several emails about the quakes I was feeling.
On April 28th St. Louis is having an EQ drill called "The Great Shake Out".

Something to consider: bad storms feed on humidity. The last St. Louis tornadoes were so bad because we had so much rain shortly before. The storms were able to gather strength from the wet. Local meteorologists are discussing this phenomenon. Normally storms dissipate before they hit the city due to the localized dry air and lack of ground moisture.

Please consider:
1. The seismic activity is upsetting the ground. The rain does not help.
bridge repair
bridge repair 2

Tablerock landslide

2. It's not even tornado season yet.

To stay safe, please get a solar/battery powered weather radio and use it. It gave us ample warning when the tornadoes rolled through. Learn to read the radar trends online, do not count on the news and weathermen.

It's mighty wet and getting wetter. That will fuel storms which fuel earth movements. Which close roads. So the heavy trucks and traffic take other roads that are unaccustomed to heavy traffic. So those roads are under stress. Add rain, add a tremor or two.

Please consider other roads you can take to get places-your usual routes may be closed.

I am fretting.

We have another friend, Kathy G, anyone heard from her?

All this rain and flooding will 'oil' the faults too.. OR maybe pressures them and keeps things safe for a time..
We really don't know.

Good news this morning that Susan and Buttercookie are alright.
I feel for those in the town that lost so much.

Tornado season this year in Arkansas started before the ball dropped in Times Square on New Year's Eve.
In Arkansas, there was already someone mourning the loss of three killed the night before. In Arkansas, New Year's Day was one of grief and loss for those friends and loved ones.

Last night was another tragic night all over the state. Flash floods, and of course the half-mile wedge tornado that hit Vilonia last night. In rare and extreme events, weatherpeople can pick up the flying debris on the radar. That's what made a straight line for Susan's hometown, a big, killer tornado.

Thankfully Susan and her family are safe. I couldn't sleep last night. But when I did and woke, I tried to think of the positives. She knew it was coming. And lives a little out of town. From what the weatherquys were showing, I thought she may have escaped the actual path. And wonderfully, even though it's not Susan herself, we now know she is safe. Probably discomforted by the destruction all around her. But in the end, she's alive and that's the final word.

Arkansas need to make a t-shirt with tornado's, floods, earthquakes, and bird death's on the front. It could say something like this, Land of Arkansas. I survived all the signs of Revelations. We breed'em tough down 'ere.

Or any local slogan about their character and ability to live in an unforgiving place. Beautiful, but wild and savage.
That's the grace of nature. No prejudice.

I'm not going to have a heart attack. After many weeks of needed denial, I went to the hospital and my ticker is fine. Just stress.

I know if anything was wrong with my heart, it'd show up this morning. I was awake until almost 3am, and walked to the hospital, and since I was so stress about my friend Susan, I thought I'd have a heart attack soon as I walked in the door and exhaled.

Nope. My ticker's good. And the icing on the cake is that Susan and crew are okay. After an internity of grim news, I'm glad I have so many things to be thanful for all at once.

Kathy is good. She the first to write that the tornado was on the ground and headed to Vilonia. It missed Greenbrier.

Keep your open still.
Keep being as safe as you can.
I will pray if I have to.

I almost never pray. God and I have a strange relationship.
I save my prayers for times I really want to believe.
I'm glad I didn't use up all mine on stupid stuff.
It had been so long since my last prayer, God paid attention only because he was so shocked.
I am anti-religion. I'm just not an atheist.
Sometimes I want to believe in God.

In an email Susan wrote to me, she said that she knew I wasn't religious but she was going to pray for me anyway. Well, I was just returning her love. Praying is an expression of love.

Good to hear your heart is alright Robin. Stress can take its toll on the body, I know as I went
thru years of anxiety and then ended up with a heart problem (I am much older than you).
I was wondering with all the water in the areas if that would maybe have an impact on the
