Not showing up on USGS yet, maybe it will maybe it won't. We did get more rain today but this is showing up on most stations in the state.

Did you feel it? I just checked now since I was busy having a day in hell, to cap off a whole week in hell. My personal matter is a disaster. Hard to think straight. My poor helpers are getting an ear full. I don't just write long tirades. I have them for real with all the shaking and dancing of a madman. So,

So, I looked and it was obviously a reasonable sized quake. There is no doubt in my mind that something bigger is on the way. There's quakes all over the place. The two lines merge, as if it were a part of branch.

I'd be more comfortable seeing several small quakes up and down the Greenbrier/Guy fault. Then I could write it of as normal adjustments in the decreasing trend. Hell, trend. Greenbrier had a couple small ones, but what's the deal with all the others. Branching. Rain. It's the rain.

Water caused the earthquakes through injection. Now, the rain is causing earthquakes. Both water. Water causes earthquakes.

Hell, I'm just guessing. Why not? When the quake has been posted yet. It seemed like the north on the two branches. It's 2.5M I'm sure or a bit greater.

I'm getting rusty, there haven't been too many quakes to guage lately. Not complaining. The other quakes don't show up as well because they're not very close to some of the stations.

So it depends on where it is.

Heard the rumble, slight shake. The rain went through several hours ago now, but the water has soaked down pretty fast to make something that size show up that quickly wouldn't you think.

A friend on facebook said this a few minutes ago "I was at a BLM meeting where a 90+ year old engineer who helped design the Greers Ferry Dam say there is a small fault downstream. He is afraid if there are more earthquakes the dam will go. My property downstream is not in the injection well moratorium. Searcy is downstream...This is an experienced engineer saying this. The BLM, etc ignored him."

Where do you think the epicenter was and how big would you say Robin?

Your weather is screwy. I've been following it as best I can. After the floods things dried out quickly and heated up. That fast change leaves lots of holes behind. Holes that absorb the water. So, now the the ground dried up, the water flows freely into the soil and perculates down at a much faster rate. The ground was swollen by the flooding, and when it dried too quickly, it leaves behind a pocket of air. The pocket is then able to soak up that water. The pockets are brittle, and when more water rushes past them it breaks and release the held water and it gets flush further along. This causes erosion. The more erosion, the faster the water flows through it. The faster the water flows through it, the faster it erodes. Sinkhole. This is how underground aquifers are created.

The whole system will keep doing this until....

You know where I'm going.

Until there is a major earthquake. Then the ground liquifies, is all shook up and replaced in a much denser state than just before the big readjustment. Because after the ground settles, much of that aquifer will be gone. Crushed and ground up and mixed in the bathtub until the whole bowl of jello settles down.

It's the water. If you're living downstream, then you had better put that in your plan.

Water is the most dangerous substance on the planet. But I am in too much awe to fear it and not love it. You have to respect water and understand it's nature.

I might do some portaging with my canoe soon.

sorry. my floodgates got opened today and the flow is still steady and relentless.

Just a guess. Near Twin Groves. 3.1 M.

I bet I'm way off.

Anyone feel the last one?


Maybe not so much. It was to the north of Guy, west of Quitman.

Yes! I was outside for a change,feeding the dogs. They started barking at the ground before I felt it,then they ran under the porch for a few minutes. The water in the pool was "shimmying",and the 4 hanging plants I could see were swinging. There was also a low rumble sound.... not at all like a train. I`m usually inside when these hit, so it was interesting to see the effects outside . It took a while for the dogs to decide to eat.

I could also feel it through the railing of the back steps where I was standing .

I did report in to the USGS.

You may remember, I said they would never start up the injection wells again. Because that would prove they caused the earthquakes. I wonder if they will present the results of the study at the next meeting.

Or will they bury the study deep? "Deep Six" the report. That's what the drillers do. They sweep everything under the carpet.

Even if the 2 injection wells are shut down, can`t they just truck the fluid to the ones that are still operating elsewhere in the area?

I`ll be amazed if we do get the "real" report now.

Two quakes seconds apart?

They`ve been updating this alot since they (?) happened. I get the emails from the USGS on them, and its been really strange this morning.

VIDEO: Quakes spur closure of well, new moratorium

EL DORADO — The Arkansas Oil and Gas Commission has voted to shut one natural gas drilling disposal well and to ban others from being drilled in a large swath of central Arkansas where hundreds of small earthquakes have been recorded. Full story at link below

Thank you to the Arkansas Oil and Gas Commission

I'm going to stick to the positives. Deep Six got sixed. The people of Arkansas won. They've realized it's not a smart thing to do in a siesmic area. I'm very happy for youall.

I'll leave my criticisms until I've thought the whole thing through.

Ignore this. Twin Groves.

They have also added another injection well to the list this afternoon after the meeting. YES!!! I am so glad. It may be late tonight or tomorrow before the get the news videos posted but will send the links once they do.

Heard a short piece on NPR this morning about the quakes and fracking in Arkansas, and for the life of me I can't find it online in their searches. Dang and it was informative.

For those who aren't aware this discussion has a bibliography of resources we have referenced during our posts.
Sorry I know it needs updating, but hey its a heck of a list just to get you informed about what we have already covered in our previous pages. Go to www.abovetopsecret.com... Read up and join in, be sure if you have other resources you want to share, be sure to copy and paste a link so it too can be included in the Bibs....

love and prayers for all our Arkansas family and friends who care so much!
