Um last time i checked 2 decades would be only 20yrs but actually since the 60's so ya that would be about 50 yrs so if yer 60 or older i would be asking them what they think,,, cause decades ya ok,,


Is that supposed to be english???


I believe that may be called "Ingrish". Odd you would notice though, proper grammar is generally not a strong point among us hillbillies. .

okay, I was about to say I was going to stop doing this...but a BIG one coming across right now.

I would guess close to 4.0 at least



edit on 17-2-2011 by westcoast because: (no reason given)


It was two or three quakes right in a row...the biggest being first. Note the numbers on the left? This one is 120 to 150....the others I posted were 20 and 40, just to give you an idea.

This is absolutely OUTRAGEOUS that the USGS is delaying a report on this.

I simply can NOT believe it!



You can go HERE to see what I am talking about. Not as instant as GEE, but only delayed by a couple of minutes. I think some of these are getting further away from this station though.

Just trying to get through to the younger ones my bad , your right sir. Ya really has been that long, what were they thinking? suck it dry and it wouldnt collapse like vein? replace it with made up physics? Its a resource yes,,,but has the snake already devoured its head? Are we that late into the game?

OK, Puterman- Here goes:

From Utah geologist Christopher Sanders: "The super-volcano underneath the state of Wyoming has been rising at a record rate since 2004. Its floor has risen 3 inches a year for the last three years indicating the fastest rate since records began in 1923, and has melted a 10,000 year old glacier. We have a 3D view on the movement of magma rising underground from the European Space Agency. We have all of the pre-warning signs of a major eruption of a super-volcano." From the book "Volcanoes- Crucibles of Change", 2010.

From Wyoming geologist Lisa Morgan, interviewed by Smithsonian magazine: "In March 2003, 14 new steam vents opened along a 230 foot line north of Norris Basin, releasing plumes of dense water vapour and powdered glass shards in a tremendous roar. Then, last July, geysers began erupting at odd times. The park had to close off much of Norris when ground temperatures shot up in places from 80 degrees Fahrenheit to 200, and the earth near a boardwalk became more acidic and began to dissolve".

From Morgan's colleague, geochemist Pat Shanks: "A temperature probe inserted into the soil at Yellowstone Lake's shore, six inches down, registers 152 degrees F. Something is fuming down there."

From geologist William Hutton, author of "Coming Earth Changes": "The water in Yellowstone Lake now has average temperatures of 80 degrees F and up. The heat comes from the growing dome on the lake floor. Due to acids seeping from fissures in the lake as well as the rising temperature, the lake is dead. Native fishes and animals can't live in it any more".

I like to get my sources from qualified people &/or books, rather than the internet. Not all scientists keep mum because their opinion is unpopular or might be "bad for business". I've been to Yellowstone, & didn't find out how dangerous the place was becoming until after I got back. I'll never return! There has already been some debate amongst a few posters here on the accuracy of the reporting of magnitude of the quakes in Arkansas. Let's stay on topic now, because the thread is about New Madrid.

Note it has already been reviewed. And the time is off by a minute. It looks bigger than a 4.0 on the seismo.

Anyone have any insight on this? 2 larger ones in a row is that unnatural? derek said his wife said it happened in waves and two posters report it shaking buildings...

hope it doesn't get any worst.

Edit: is there an active govt cover-up of the seismic activity??

ok let me try this way and i quote from aformention text ( see above ) "This area has had earthquake swarms for decades" Now decade as we all know stands for ten so literally you are saying 20 years.
Now re read above quote with a litte more clearer understanding in the concept of correction without inspection,,

This area has had earthquake swarms for 20 years.

See the difference age makes.
edit on 17-2-2011 by BobAthome because: (no reason given)


Decades is plural, meaning more than one decade not 20 years.

t has been decades since Napoleon Bonaparte died = true.
It has been 20 years since Napoleon Bonaparte died = false.

See the difference?

WoW!!!

I'm in Memphis so I am most certainly tuned in....us Memphians have never felt as much as a tremor before so it is a bit 'exciting', and I'm sure we'll be feeling somethin soon

Nothing about this is "normal"

I was browsing the web trying to find the magnitude of that last big jolt felt in Arkansas and ran across a site saying it was a 5.0....

Whoa
