I've been watching globalincidentmap for some time. Not that it hasn't happened, but I don't remember ever looking and not seeing some red dots indicating a quake within the last hour. Here is the last one;

Type: Earthquake
20 minutes ago
Magnitude: 1.2
DateTime: Wednesday April 27 2011, 01:11:41 UTC
Region: Central California
Depth: 3.9 km

But, it was over 2 hours between this and the one before it. Has anyone else noticed this before?
"The calm before the storm" perhaps, I don't see how we could get more waterlogged here.

The tornado sirens and green sky made it feel as if the world was coming to an end......

Susan, You and Mark are heros in my eyes. You really took up the cause a lot more than most people would have. I am in the South AR, but whatever happens there effects us all. I am moving to Hot Springs but I am not sure it is any safer. Just want to get to higher ground. Real bad lighting down here. I really feel for everyone in Viollia. They said everyone was accounted for thank God. Love and Peace.

Glad you're ok, Robin. Hang in there. When I was having panic attacks regularly, I was in the hospital alot for suspected heart attacks. felt just like them. One tip that works for me-stay out of stores that get a lot of merchandise from overseas. The fumigants in the clothes, the plastic items off-gassing, the lighting.

I grew up with tornadoes, as did my Midwestern friends. We understand what it takes to stay aware and safe.

More roads are being closed due to flooding
road closures
The ground is unstable. Please, if you are in the region, consider alternate routes. Not many roads in the countryside.
Tremors will not help.

Tornado weather is:
quiet (leaves hang limply on trees)
greenish sky
a low-hanging lumpy sky full of smallish, round clouds

Please get a weather radio if you don't have one.
Old-timer's advice: an AM radio will have constant static when tuned low on the dial when it's tornadic. Also local TV stations low on the dial will go to static.
Storms coming through now

You don't usually hear any birds chirping or much of anything as well, it gets very quiet as they are approaching. Then you hear the roar or train sound. I don't know about the rest of you in Arkansas but I am exhausted and mentally as well from keeping track of all of them. But, don't let your guard down at all. I'm watching the amount of rain and stations and holding my breath here that we don't go into another swarm of quakes. Just be prepared if a large quake hit it could be another nightmare for all of us. Many could be trapped with no way out and roads washed out and landslides.

Hey Susan, so glad you're back! Hope everything and everyone (incl the dogs) are ok. Before this St. Louis tornado swarm (4 confirmed so far), most birds were silent but one made a massive racket.

I know how stressed I am, I imagine you and the others down there are worn out. Know that I am keeping good thoughts and prayers that this time will pass.

Yes, the thought of closed roads and landslides with earthquakes makes me nervous. St. Louis is saying very little about all the closed roads. I had to google to find what I did.

The topography of the region is incredibly hilly with varied terrain. One area might be pure clay and one ridge over there are mounds of loose shale or a rock deposit. Can't drive over it. And roads are pretty scarce. Many roads were created out of cutting into the earth. Heck, there are "falling rock" signs all over Missouri roadways already.

Here's my problem: the majority of people think an earthquake will rumble and they will be under the table, to wait it out. I know I did. But the daily tremors here remind me that the area is precarious. They may not stop. And enough of them will close roads-the ways OUT.

Many people live on one lane roads with one way in and out.

Battle fatigue. That is what we have.

The river just concerns me on so many levels. The rain should be letting up today, but they still evacuated part of a residential area on the naval base in Millington.

Disturbing news this morning

On the federal level, Corps of Engineers barges left Memphis for an area near New Madrid, Mo., carrying crews and equipment that would be used to blow open a levee at the Birds Point-New Madrid Floodway, an area designated to serve as a relief valve to reduce river stages elsewhere. So far, however, officials haven't decided whether to use the floodway.

I had remembered reading a first hand account of the 1811 New Madrid Earthquake - particularly an account of what was happening along the river on the day of and the weeks to come. River boiling, fallen trees being ejected from the river several yards up into the air. Scary stuff.

I don't know how to copy and paste a link, but there was a gas well explosion in Louisiana. I read it on if anyone can find the storybook and link it, it would be appreciated. Thanks

And on another note, y'all stay safe down there in AR!

Here's the link:

LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - A natural gas well blew wild in south Louisiana's Lafayette Parish, forcing evacuation of about 100 households.

Here are some photos on my facebook page if any of you want to see them from the tornado damage in Vilonia. I am working on the videos now and will upload them on youtube and edit and add them to this post. Will also post them on the tornado thread.'''

i was sitting here earlier wondering ...can we get PTSD from the weather? Battle fatigue is a definite just trying to get back and forth to work and wondering if the ground will shake and the hillsides slide down due to the mud or will the ground just swallow you up. You could make yourself crazy from all the happenings in the last month. People are weary from the tornado's and floods. It will be mass chaos if it quakes along with it.

Oh wow...didn't know they were happening in Tennessee
