Susan, I have been watching this flood map everyday and for days it showed half of New York state, Mass. all the way up the Hudson completely flooded in " Yellow" Which meant possible. Also yellow where I live well now I am in the Red but the Yellow in New York State is gone. I keep thinking, is the entire Atlantic going to come down the Hudson. One map on there says this Map:
River Level Map
www.nws.noaa.gov... Not posted for security reason !!!! Now that is bizzar and the link they give does'nt work. That has been like this for a week.

This is a Map they had today, the little red part last week the yellow at New York covered half the state.
www.hpc.ncep.noaa.gov...

An Astrophysicist friend said the Military has known this was going to happen months ago. Makes you wonder about the date of this first time ever Natural Disaster Earthquake Drill. I bet they timed it just right. All those Rainbow Clouds are scary as hell.

Happy Mothers Day to those that it applies to...I spent the day near Mt. Magazine visiting with my mom. My sister said yesterday there was lots of "thundering sounds" with completely clear skies. It was quiet over there today but I did notice that a few of her dogs suddenly had some strange behaviors and barking at nothing. I get home and a few minutes ago we have had a few deep low rumbles and the plumb bob is swaying again. Of course nothing showing up on USGS going to load GEE here and check it out. Pretty good swinging think it's time to make another video.

Excessive rainfall maps...

Seems like we are close to disaster from a heavy down fall in the already affected flood zones...

Am I reading this right? Tuesday is when it crests, but what if an intense rain falls as well?

Something is up folks.

www.hpc.ncep.noaa.gov...

Funny thing is when I go to the links on this search page they all come up no warnings? Can anyone in the areas let us know if you are expecting excessive rains along with the flooding?

Coolottie,

I live in upstate NY, Syracuse area. We're right in the middle of the state. We had flooding and flood warnings from the end of April (26th) until friday. We had the wettest April ever - 26 days of rain. Things are calming down now. We're suppose to have a few dry days in a row. By the way, remember in February & March when every one seemed to be having the emergency broadcast announcements. We seemed to have more of them too at that time. Funny how they've dwindled down to nothing.

I have been following this thread since the beginning. I guess it's time for me to come out of lurkdom. I have greatly appreciated everyone's input. They have been interested in fracking in my town. I have gotten involved in a grassroots movement to prevent it. Fingers crossed - so far we've kept the wolves at bay.

I have been concerned about the NMF. I'm very glad for all of you that the fracking has stopped in Arkansas. I'm concerned though that you are still having earthquakes in the area. It means it's not just the fracking that was causing the earthquakes. I have a terrible feeling, if they start fracking again, it'll be the straw that broke the camels back. I've been holding my breath and praying for you all, that they call a permanent halt to the fracking.

I was also amazing at the flooding in Missouri. It's terrible that the news is so lame regarding it. When we're already having food shortages, I don't understand why they're sacrificing all that land. I worry about the weight of all that water and where is it going to go? Will it eventually cause more damage making the NMF more unstable?

Anyway, praying that my terrible feeling is just me being paranoid and over reacting.

Stay safe.

Not sure about anyone else, but at 1:29 AM, my house "giggled" a bit (a split-second.) Checking to see if anyone else felt any movement.

Did some driving around yesterday around some flooded areas. North of St. Louis (Alton IL) the Mississippi and Missouri are high but the flooding is down.

Aaaannnnddd...the bad news comes.
I belong to an aquarium society and water is, of course, the primary medium for healthy fish.

Due to the flooding, the water treatment facilities are using more chloramine to treat the water. Due to flooding, the water has more agricultural run-off, so nitrates are high. One of our most competent fishkeepers had a few tanks of fish die after water changes. He tested the water-high in nitrates and chloramine (this is AFTER he used chloramine reducer).

St. Louis generally has good water that tests out well after treatment. St. Louis also has a company that makes aquarium water treatments JUST for St. Louis water. The fact that this stuff did not work makes me nervous. Usually the city messes with the water in August-there is usually a spike in cryptosporidium at this time of year.

I understand this is not earthquake related per se. But if you are on city water where you live and there has been flooding upstream of you, check your water. Aquarium stores have cheap water test kits. pH, nitrates are easy to test for. Out of the tap, you want a pH of 7 to 10 (neutral to alkaline) with no nitrates.

MODS move this post if there is a better spot for it.

We have felt some of it, heard a few little quakes but they are not reported. Seasick again, and ears ring at times worse than others, but it has slowed a little in the past little bit here for the time being. Went to Louisiana Saturday for my grandsons Birthday party. I expected to see more water down there but didn't, we were also on the higher roads traveling. We were about 25 miles from the river but the area rivers were at normal stages for this time of year down there and they have gone down some. Sunday I was on the north side of the Ouachita Mtn's and Lake Nirmod is still high and the Arkansas River is still high but both have gone down and you can see the water lines in the trees and road sides. There are some water boils and seepage on the MS from Memphis on down and the Corp of Engineers video's are on youtube

www.youtube.com...

There is activity on the stations all over the state if you go look at the different readings. You see all kinds of bumps and wiggles and things that make you go Hummmmmm._javascript:icon('

An absolutely clear sky this afternoon. Can't remember the last time that happened. Nothing. No crisscrossing of jet exhausts, no clouds, no breeze, and its heating up finally. Uh, spring has sprung, and I think it's gonna be instant summer.

Solutions
1) let the water stand for 2-3 days... the chlorine products will evaporate
2) reverse osmosis filter.
3) cheap fast fix... clean bucket with a mesh screen basket filled with charcoal... pour water over that. If you have a barbeque you can make your own high grade charcoal by scorching some hardwood. Old pallets are great for that

I read yesterday where you had an 2.6 mag quake in Redford, NY. I use to live in Carthage upstate. On the Flood map it showed last week a huge yellow area across northwestern New York State. It is gone now. Also Push that the fracking will poison the drinking water. Keep up the good work.

Hello

Reporting from Memphis

River has crested today, but there are many flooded areas, and wildlife running around (deer, snakes)

The part of Memphis that I live in is high above the river and did not get flooded.

I donated items at the shelters, including the pet shelter over the weekend.

I had to check out the USGS and sure enough. There it was, an earthquake in the North Country (NY)! I work in the North Country a couple of times a month. There's the Massena Cornwall fault right on the border between NY and Canada. The biggest quake ever in NY was in Massena (it's about 3 1/2 hours north of where I live). It was a 5.0. Not very big by most standards. It took place in 1944(?) People thought Massena was being bombed. It did do damage up there.

My crazy theory (based on some fact. I have a MS in geology but never have worked as one.) is that the Mississippi is a failed triple junction (that's a fact) . My crazy theory, like some have also suggested is that these faults are all connected. So if the NM fault goes, It'll cause a chain reaction, the Wabash will go and faults through the Ohio river up through the St Lawrence and onto the Massena Cornwall fault. In the opposite direction, it'll trigger fault(s) through the Missouri River and up through Wisconsin up to Lake Superior (that's my crazy theory).

The Olduvai Gorge in Africa is a similar failed triple junction.

Still praying that our friends to the south start to dry out.

Stay safe.
