gosh. I've read several reports that say Vilonia is flooding. Susan, if you're reading this, keep your eyes open! And after this flood.. oh gosh the earthquakes.. everything is getting wet and soggy.. and I'm sure the water will be moving the earth around much deeper than normal. Our vegetable garden is gone, by the way. Washed away and leveled. You can't tell we planted it yet - many of our plants were already over a foot tall
I don't know what exactly these floods will do for the earthquakes, but I'm betting it will be bad. In a few days we'll be working toward a full moon again so here's what I see: The influence of the moon on our soggy, half liquified earth will cause a great disturbance. I see particles of dirt really being pulled up and moved around. Around the time it will probably start to dry out (heavy rain through Tues. of this week, then more rain next weekend, so I'm guessing it will be at least 2 weeks before things dry out) we'll get a full moon. I'm thinking that's significant. I could be wrong, but I'm guessing that in the next month or so we'll see at least another 4+. *sigh.

The rain in training over Memphis, which is making flooding SO MUCH WORSE! Based on the flood maps that were released yesterday, looks like I may be trapped in Millington for a few days (and I have final exams with mandatory attendence this week). I'm keeping the local news on for the latest updates, but it is so sad that so many people are getting flooded with no insurance to cover their loses. I hope you are ok where you are located BC. I wish their was a flood watch thread on the Fragiel Earth forum. I bet there are more Memphis members here on ATS that have a lot to report.

We drove over there, but it has receded, ditches are still pretty full. It was up over the road and a ditch may have gotten clogged and then broke free or someone unclogged it. All we can do is watch and be prepared. I haven't been watching GEE much at all but I am afraid you are right. Woke up with nausea this morning.

Yes!!! Constant rain here....We woke up to see the muddy brown river water outside. The news is warning people of snakes that come from the river

Update on the flooding. Lake KARK 4 News is reporting that one person has died this morning in the flooding near Mayflower, as a car was swept away by the waters. Highway 89 is reported to be very bad as Lake Conway continues to rise. Northern Maumelle is very bad as well, as two friends of mine reported this morning that their apartment and both vehicles were completely destroyed by flood waters. Be careful out there!

Faulkner Co:
One person has died. A car was swept off the road in Hwy 89 around 6 am.
Hwy 89 is BAD! 40 people have been evacuated from the Vilonia Mayflower area. Lake Conway is of great concern. It has risen 3 feet.

From Lonoke County:
-Hwy 67/167 closed in the county.
-Hwy 31, just south N of Hwy 236 east, south Hwy 38/31 junction
-Mt. Tabor Road, Mt, Carmel and Dogwood just south of 319/38.
-Kerr Station between Pigthorn and Sunset Circle.

*Our contact says there are a lot more road closures everyone should be very careful when going out. Or don't go out at all.

Lots of post on KARK's facebook page about it, watching very closely here.

From North Little Rock:
Roads closed:
-Burns Park from the golf course to RV Park underwater.
-6600 Crystal Hill, near Wild River Country.
-Counts Massie and Paul Eells
-E. Bethany and Eureka Gardens
-55th and Allen, there's a 2 foot deep sink hole there

My newest task is to stop smoking. So if I fly off the handle, you'll know what kind of stick got stuck in my spokes.

Not allowed to swear here, so...

Jiminy Krickets. It is not a flood of the century, this is a millenium flood. Something only seen a couple of times over a thousand years. You have to check the geological record to find other examples.

This will change things in absolute terms. There will be the short term disaster, but there will also be long term changes. I will not pretend to understand every aspect, but I've done too much studying to miss the obvious.
Even the scientist at this point have nothing to compare levels as they change. They are in unscripted territory.

Did you notice the weatherpeople as they watched the tornado in Alabama?
Every so often they would be speechless and they just said, "Wow" and "Would you look at that... WoW!"
These are experienced meteorologists, and still they are dumbstruck when staring at the actual wrath of nature.
They are now losing cliches to describe the floods.

I am convinced this flood season will change the crust and will make major seismic event more likely.
But remember to think in geological time. A blink of the eye then becomes a year.

So, it may not be immediate, but it's inevitalbe when you contemplate on the physics.
In simple terms, it's way too much water.

HAARP might have not been fully operationial for earthquakes, but they have been modifiying weather for a while, and don't forget Katrina. Plus about one year after Katrina a storm suddenly formed 100 miles off the coast of Louisanna as big as Katrina. Never heard of a huricane forming in the Gulf, It sat there for 3 days then disappeared. Nothing like that ever happened before. HAARP was officially established in 1993, but there was talk of weather modification, [supposedly to our benefit] years before and there was testing going on. Last night I found on Youtube a video of wispy rainbow clouds over Japan, can't find it now. Here is something we need to start looking for, Watch the radar.

""" Govenment will sieze all land if they can make it unlivable"""
What better way to take over the land by the government as they did in 9th. Ward New Orleans, the government just took it after Katrina, as intimate domain. The power company never even put any electricity service in the 9th Ward. The cases are still in the courts. What better way for the government to sieze all of the gas area in Arkansas, by making the land unlivable.

From George Ure,

Thought it would be fun this morning to tromp through a couple of stats about how this month has gone, since this has been a rip-snortin' doozy...screaming metals, collapsing banks and a cratering US Dollar. Makes it easy for a financial columnist to write on mornings like this; there is no shortage of subject matter. But the "one trillion pound question" in New Madrid does grab our immediate attention. We're on high alert for a major quake.

Coolottie... hurricanes have indeed formed in the Gulf Of Mexico for years and years and years.

I'm not dismissing the "potential" of HAARP to be used for weather modification... however we need to realize that weather of all types, has happened on this planet, long before man was ever born.

Where and When Do They Form?

Hurricanes do an important job for the Earth. They help move heat from warm tropical places to the cooler temperate zone. To do this, they typically form between 5 to 15 degrees latitude north and south of the equator. Then, they thunder across the warm oceans of the world such as the Atlantic, the Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean, and the Western Pacific Ocean (where they are called typhoons), up to higher latitudes.

Hurricanes happen when the oceans have been warmed during summer months. In the North Atlantic, hurricane season is from June 1 to November 30, but most hurricanes happen during the fall.

University Corporation For Atmospheric Research

Proxy records based on paleotempestological research have revealed that major hurricane activity along the Gulf of Mexico coast varies on timescales of centuries to millennia. Few major hurricanes struck the Gulf coast during 3000–1400 BC and again during the most recent millennium. These quiescent intervals were separated by a hyperactive period during 1400 BC and 1000 AD, when the Gulf coast was struck frequently by catastrophic hurricanes and their landfall probabilities increased by 3–5 times. This millennial-scale variability has been attributed to long-term shifts in the position of the Azores High, which may also be linked to changes in the strength of the North Atlantic Oscillation.

Katrina was not a unusually large hurricane. The problem was the levees.

I keep reading and watching all the finger pointing at HAARP and I see nothing. I have my eyes wide open. I am the biggest critic of the government and would immediately call out anything they do that's wrong.

The video you post did not show tell-tale signs of HAARP. I am always watching the weather radar. I have two main obsesssions- watching certain webicorders, and watching the weather. Sometimes I have to look at Arkansas's radar because I see the thunder showing up on the siesmos.

That weather phenomenon is not unusual. And I won't comment further because it would start me ranting about climate change. These storms are no surprise to me. It's simply a matter of low pressure and high pressure and the usual mix that creates extreme weather. I have noticed a regular pattern that I call them giant commas. You can track the cold Canadian air as it mixes with the warm Gulf air. If you want a culprit responsible for the increased precipitation, you need look no further than the coal-fired power plants in China. Then you throw in La Nina, and a warm climate, and presto chango, you got the right ingredients for large storms. You don't need HAARP. This is like cooking. Right ingredients, the right temperatures, and you get what we've been seeing in the weather.

If HAARP was affecting the weather, the boys would be giving some rain to Texas.
And the rich already own most of the land. And they are already in control of mineral rights and they need people living in the area to do the grunt work. The dirty work.

Last night I was watching a documentary the Bill Moyers made back in 1987 after the Iran/Contra trials. It was called the secret government. I know it's a fact that the CIA and the military are doing all kinds of evil deeds all over the place. But they are still using the old techniques which have been proven to work. Nothing has changed.

Bribery and arms sales.
Lobbying to control legislation.
Drug running.
If these all fail, well then they just invade.

I'm not saying that there are no plans in the works for big, bad weapons that can devastate on a large scale.
They are already have nukes. But can't use them.
Why would they destroy Arkansas when they've already built the infrastructure and already control the politicians?

Sure, there's been an outcry and lots of public exposure that's causing problems.
But that's business. The only reason the story got so much attention was the earthquakes.
People can't help but notice when the whole region starts shaking.
They will sweep their problems under the carpet and keep doing what they're doing.
They'll write off the two injection wells and carry on. They're still winning.
They're still injecting waste fluids at other sites, and they are still fracking.
Yes, they are having problems with the EPA, and with the public backlash.
They won't launch a secret weapon to cause the entire middle of the USA to become inhabitable.
They will just lobby and bribe and bully the public in court.
They hold off the resistance with one hand, while the other hand pumps the grounds dry.
Then they'll move on.
Just as they always do. As they've always done.

Bust and Boom
They know the game and own the house.
It's thier casino and they make the odds.
Our dependancy on oil is like having a gambling addiction.
Sooner or later, you'll be signing over the deed to your house to the casino.

You want to win this war?
Stop being an addict. Stop using oil.
Stop giving them your money.

The one thing all those blaming HAARP for everything under the sun fail to cover is WHY... the PTB and military industrial overlords also have family in the regions being hit.

One day, mark my words, they will sing a different tune when HAARP becomes the protector

Sooner or later, you'll be signing over the deed to your house to the casino.

We LOVE those casinos here in Vegas... because of them we pay no state taxes
So... come on down and play

You want to win this war? Stop being an addict. Stop using oil. Change. Yourself. Stop giving them your money.

Unfortunately it is not realistic to stop using oil because America will not give up our cars..

BUT there IS a way... boycott the big one EXXON... buy your gas from anyone else and make sure you find out who owns the station. EXXON is the company that made record ever quarter profits in the first year of the Iraqi 'war' while we were shelling out 'because of the war effort'

Hit EXXON in the pocket book by a nation wide boycott and see what happens. That way you can still drive and send a message at the same time.

Here's a perfect example of someone who claims to bust the HAARP project and claims the storms start in Alaska.

Watch this video...

His conclusion is absurd. These weather patterns are normal. Part of the cycle is as a result of the geography of the area. The jet stream and the ocean currents cause this pattern and has been doing so for at least since they've been recording weather. Nothing new.

But the pattern is more energized. And it doesn't start in Alaska. It's all explainable and predictable.
Did you notice the cloud cover orginating in Asia?
That's dirty air and the fine particles are what is responsible for precipitation. I keep hearing about cloud seeding.
That's in essence what the pollution from China is doing. It's seeding the storms with material which later in the cycle falls as rain over North America.

I don't even understand this chem trail story.
Maybe it's because I used to live by an airport and a flight path, that causes me to see nothing remarkable in the trails.
They look just like the contrails I've been seeing all my life.
Maybe it's due to me being a deluded dreamer, that I've always looked in the sky and followed the planes across the horizon. I've always had my head in the clouds. Nothing looks different.

These videos keep showing me formations and saying, "Look, more evidence."
I look, and it looks just like the skies I've seen for the last four decades. Sure there's more of them.
But that's because there's more planes.

Do you know who's happy that lots of us are pointing to HAARP for the cause of disasters?
Do you know who's happy were following the "chemtrails" and ballon boy?

The secret government.
This way the distraction allows them to get away with murder.
While we're looking up, and looking at Alaska, they're picking our pockets.
And poisoning the wells.

From the rulebook written by the CIA to cause instabilty in a country.
Start rumours.
Put dirt in gas tanks.
Throw sponges in toilets.

Who needs high tech weapons when the simple small stuff is so effective and cheap?

Now, back to the water and the faults.

My mind is wrestling with a massive calculation.

What will total energy released be when they blow the levee?
What will this moving mass of water do to the stress loads on the faults?
Will this pressure wave set off a chain reaction?

Cairo is located on the north end of the New Madrid Seimic Zone.

A few days ago, there was an earthquake in Minnesota. It is thought that these type of earthquake may be caused by a rebound of the crust after the glaciers depressed the land.

If this slow-motion rebound theory is valid, will there be a similar dynamic on the New Madrid as the mass of the flood changes pressures on the faults?

All I can answer is yes. Yes, there will be a significant change. I just can't say how the change will manifest itself. And I can't say how long the change will take.

Some researchers think that the Chinese earthquake of 2008 was as a result of a dam. They theroize the addtional water's mass changed the stress on the faults.

If this hypothesis is valid, then wouldn't similiar change in the stress on faults cause the same affect on the New Madrid Zone?

I think there is such a risk. And I think the writing is on the wall.
Blowing up a dam ontop a seimic area is a big gamble.
Welcome to the United Casinos of America.
Place your bets.

I grew up in Biloxi, and lived in New Orleans for 10 years, and the huricanes are formed in the Atlantic ocean usually off the coast of Africa, If you look at the Map right below your quote on the link you posted the map shows where they form. They somtimes get stronger in the Gulf, but they form in the Oceans.

Hurricanes are the most awesome, violent storms on Earth. People call these storms by other names, such as typhoons or cyclones, depending on where they occur. The scientific term for all these storms is tropical cyclone. Only tropical cyclones that form over the Atlantic Ocean or eastern Pacific Ocean are called "hurricanes."

There has been a lot of talk about Katrina and the HAARP involvement. Robin, New Orleans is not all that was destroyed by Katrina, the entire Gulf Coast all the way to Mobile. I was in Camile in 69, and it was called the biggest. But it just destroyed the Miss. Coast. Katrina was a Catagory 5

This site has a lot of info.

HAARP was highly active in the weeks before Katrina, during, and a short time after. The correlation is therefore not complete. If HAARP were inactive during that time, then it could be proven that it had absolutely nothing to do with Katrina, but since it was indeed active, a possible link still remains.

Katrina hit New Orleans as a Category 3 hurricane.

That video that claimed to prove HAARP is controllilng the weather did not prove the theory.
At one point the narrator, Number One, said that if the arrays were coordinated...

I highly doubt the Russians are coordinating with the Americans on much.
They still might be stinging from being bankrupted by the arms race.
Funny thing, America will be bankrupted when emerging markets switch to a basket of currencies to buy oil.
When China feels the US is weak, they will apply their might and the American dollar will crash. It's already showing lots of weakness. My Canadian Monopoly money is now more valuable than the greenback.

Buy gold and bury it.
If you want to play the big casino, then get into the stock market and invest in rare earth minerals.
But wait for about five months because there's going to be another huge sell off in about four months.
Wait, yes, buy after the crash that happens in September, buy around the second week in October.

If you want to get rich, short the market so your contract comes due in October.

Just a guy who saw the last correction coming.
There were a dozen others that were noting that things didn't add up.
The book the Black Swan showed the models were built on only positive data.
The models forgot to not forget history,

Do you want to know the truth and understand the world today?
Forget the alerts and the theories.
Go study some history and know find out the facts.
Let history be your guide.

No credible historian will deny the CIA overthrew the democratical leader of Iran because he wanted to nationalize the oil fields. It's a known fact. The problem is that about 90% of the American population doesn't study history. The American People think Iran and Iraq have always been ultra-religious and violent tyrannical countries. This isn't the case. Baghdad was once a modern civilized city. Iran was become a modern secular democratic responsible nation. Iran and Iraq's biggest problem was they were sitting on vast oil reserves.

Who's the US bombing now?
What are the Lybians sitting on top of?

Here is a very thorough link regarding weather modification and lot's and lot's of good info and sources to learn more about what is happening in our skies and on the ground.

I don't claim to know 100% if HAARP is used for such simple things as making it rain continuously, (but neither do I rule it out for acting on the jet steam etc.) obviously I think it wouldn't be *needed* in this case, the military has supposedly been rainmaking since the days of Vietnam.

Weather mod. is quite real and unfortunately it's goals are not alwsys in line with the immediate interests of those it negatively affects.

One example often sited was the alleged constant seeding for rain in 1993, which drove many many people out of the river bottoms by flooding, so that the gov, could come in and take over the land and revert it back to 'wild areas'. (an often heard repeated theme and goal)

Whether or not one believes the effort was helped by constant seeding for rain, without the rain and flooding the gov. would have had a heck of a fight getting those people off of their land.

With the flooding they achieved their desired goal of reclaiming the land and it was all blamed on 'nature'.

I have no doubt that many governments have conducted many experiments with weather modification.
The Chinese are doing it as we speak.
I'm sure they have developed the ideas and are working on such weapons right now.
And I'm not denying HAARP is part of a weapons systems program.
The problem is scale, and feasability, and secrecy. Most secrets are open secrets. So denyability is important. Remember Reagan.

When designing a weapon that manipulates the weather, you must fully understand the consequences of your intended purposes. The fact is that we barely understand everything that is involved in a particular storm system. Even when conditions are ripe for a certain phenomenon, it may not happen. It's like hurricane predictions. Everything can be pointing for an energetic season, then something is the mix is quite right, and the whole thing defies the models. This is why there is legititmate argument that long term climate models are questionable.

HAARP probably part of a weapons program. It is not the weapon itself, it is a device to test the atmosphere to understand it's physics. Then, when you understand the atmosphere, then you make a new technology and srew with it.

Knowing how the military works. If they tried to manipulate the weather, it would backfire. They have also made this calcualtion. So if they are screwing with the atmosphere, they are doing so on a much too small a scale to make any grand change. This is about scale. The atmosphere is a massive and complex system. Even though it sounds like the array is very powerful, it's not. Let's think about heating the atmosphere. Our urban areas produce much more reflective heat from the sun. These heat islands are now thought to change the weather patterns. But it only steers the storm a couple miles and eventually the system corrects itself and the flow is basically the same. Until it hits another city. We have already modified the weather and the climate.

But it's about scale. Even when you add up all the effects of mankind from every aspect of our civilization, the effect changes the equation by small fractions over a long time. This absolutely changes the climate, but it is a cumulative cause which is many millions of times the influence of HAARP even if you include every array on the planet working in tandem.

A greater threat to climate is CFCs. They're still producing holes in the ozone and have a much more damaging effect. Even this disasterous stupidity pollution problem doesn't not dramatically alter the climate or the weather patterns. But it is part of the problem. Even if HAARP was able to significantly alter a part of the atmosphere, I find it laughable that people think they can steer the weather. The weather is notoriously unpredictable. Yes, there are obvious conditons and our wonderful weatherpeople have become adept at tracking the radar and can give out warnings. But they are the first to tell you the weather is impossible to predict accurately, Especially long-range. That's why meteorologists have criticized the climatologists. They say, how can you model the climate 20 years from now, when we can't even accurately predict out three days or more. Sometimes things will change completely from the forecast in a couple of hours. If the great work by our weatherpeople has incredible drawbacks in their understanding, do you really think the army is going to be able to have complete control and can steer the damn stuff. No way. They can screw with it a bit, but they aren't going to be able to alter it on a massive scale. Well, not without having a massive technology which will have obvious signatures.

HAARP is not controlling the weather.

What's dominating the weather and our climate?
A warming planet.
Melting poles.
La Nina.
The jet stream.
Chinese smog.
The ocean currents.
The solar cycle.
The atmosphere.

They may be mucking about with the atmosphere. But the atmosphere is only part of the equation.

I've been doing a lot of reading and I found this really cool dude. He's dead though. And I've never heard of him before. It's amazing that as soon as I started reading about him, I knew he had a profound understanding of physics and they way everything in our world interacts.

His name is Iben Browning and he made a prediction concerning the New Madrid Fault.
He was wrong of course. And people said this proves he caused a fuss for nothing, but even he said there was a chance of an earthquake, he didn't say it was an absolute.

Prediction is a lot like a weather forecast.
You may understand the patterns, see the conditions, but there is always the variables which are in constant flux.
This constant mixing and interplay is exactly why directing a weather weapon is not credible.
You can make one. But it ain't going to work the way you predict.
Mother Nature always gets the last word.
Because if there is an end to human kind, nature will erode and erase every trace of our civilization. Well, at least on the surface. Our landfills will be left behind for alien scientists to uncover and study, sometime in the distant future.
