Maybe its not the big one but there might be some damage soon because thats quite a few in a short time you know how you bend a hanger back and forth it gets easier then breaks all of a sudden wondering about the gas and water lines but i hope everything is ok down there kinda of weird keeping an eye on this thread

What if either the new Madrid fault line or Yellowstone triggers one or the other.
We are just talking so no insults..

Peace

I am addicted to this thread. I live in Kansas City so i'm not to close to the zone, but i have a lot of family in south Missouri by the Arkansas border. I'm gonna have to call them in the morning to see if they feel any of these. Hopefully they don't get any worse. Does anyone know how long the solar flair will last? i heard that it will hit earth over a several days. I don't know if that's true or not, but if it is then this might only be the beginning.

OMG you guys....do any of you realize this is pretty much centered right in the middle of a hot spring?

OKAY...so now I am going to say it. It looks like something is migrating.

Hello all. This thread made me sighn up after being here for 2-3 years at least reading post and bitting my tounge.
Well I have also been ploting earthquakes on maps since 6, (hate to admit it but that is 39 years of thumbtacks)I also have never seen the USGS, hold out info. If you watch there maps much (ive check 2-5 times a day) you will notice they will report earthquakes as they happen and post them without info. I have never seen them posted with a review first. It ususally takes them from 5 min - 1 hour to figure out there size. But today I have noticed thats there info is a bit slow to say the least.


As a side note after years of plotting it seems that the moon has a huge influance (at least to my observations) as to the timing of quakes. www.smeter.net...
I have notice that most of the big quakes happen just at the shadow line on the map not when the moon is directly overhead.
Also would like to mention that I have been a profesional mariener most of my life. and there is somthing at the back of my mind troubling about the moon and stars, cant just pin it down but its at the back of my brain

Thanks so much for that info, Robin- I've been mentioning the same thing in several posts on your thread & the same geologist, Chris Sanders, is mentioned in one of them as well. Keep up all of the great work!

Hot Springs is traditionally best known for the natural spring water that gives it its name, flowing out of the ground at a temperature of 147 °F (64 °C) . Hot Springs National Park is the oldest federal reserve in the USA, and the tourist trade brought by the famous springs make it a very successful spa town. Since Hot Springs National Park was the oldest federal reserve, it was the first to receive its own US quarter in April 2010 as part of the America the Beautiful Quarters.[3]



The city takes its name from the natural thermal water that flows from 47 springs on the western slope of Hot Springs Mountain in the historic downtown district of the city. About a million gallons of 143-degree water flow from the springs each day.

Thats a lot of water... I wouldn't stick around there if i lived there... that could cook that entire region...

How far away are these from the area in which the blackbirds died? IIRC, there were reports of bird die offs and odd animal behaviors prior to the 1811-12 events. I sincerely hope this is just normal seismic activity, but I'm afraid too many dots are connecting themselves.

I've got a wicked chill I can't seem to warm myself from. I don't live very near the area, but I am thinking the area in which I reside would be severely impacted. I can only imagine how those of you who live right there are feeling right about now.

Stay Safe and take care of one another!

I am by no means a scientist. There is alot of fracking here in Pa. Particularly North of me in Bradford county and out near Erie and Potter. I haven't heard of any quakes associated with fracking here. I never looked at any fault zones for Pa. but assume they are minimum. I remember one minor quake a few years ago here. I'm near Allentown area. Hope my input helps with it.


Well, if water injection is the true culprit, they don't do this in PA. Plus PA ground is more stabile than elsewhere.

But still I wonder if perhaps they should do a study. This is what I would do if I was in charge of this country. First of all, curtail all water injection until this study is completed. Pick an uninhabited area in PA and do the water injection. If an eq happens in the most stabile of areas, then that will be all the truth they need. If not, they should pick an area in an uninhabited, but less stabile area of AR. Watch it for some time, and if nothing, repeat.

I do have an excellent example of fracking being a possible cause of an eq. Remember the crack that developed in the upper peninsula of Michigan? It was later found to be caused by an earthquake. Now read this...

An exploratory well, in Missaukee, which is named Pioneer, was drilled by Denver-based Petoskey Exploration, a subsidiary of the Calgary-based Encana corporation, and unlike the natural gas wells tapped into the Antrim shale formation (between 600-2,200 feet deep) across northern Michigan in the 1980s, Pioneer went down 9,685 feet and then drilled horizontally into the Collingswood shale formation for 5,000 feet. 5 million gallons of water was used.

New exploratory deep fracking experiment in Michigan

And you will see that that well was drilled before the crack developed. Now take a look at a map. And you will be able to draw a straight line between that well and the new uplifted crack.

I recall from earlier in the thread that someone was concerned about the appearance of the graphs and what they might possibly portend. The post set off a memory of something I watched on TLC, of Discovery, or National Geographic, etc. So I went looking and found this.

Is this what was being considered? If so, in what way would that apply to this circumstance?

I just hesitate to say more than I should, because I do not want to add more stress. I wish Puterman were on right now so we could pick his brain too.

When I say migrating, I mean moving. If I were looking at a volcano, I would say magma or lava. So far as I know, there is no indication there is a volcano there. The fact that there are hot springs just gives creadance that this is a geothermal system which means there are more possibilities as to what this all means. (in my opinion anyways)

Again, I want to stress that I am not a geologist in any way...just a quake watcher. I have looked at enough seismos to at least know this is looking wierder and wierder. I say wait for someone with more knowledge to chime in.

Fortean / Alternative News: Daily Earthquakes in Small Town

Small town gets a dozen earthquakes EVERY DAY after gas drilling goes awry

dailymail - A small American town has become one of the earthquake capitals of the world after suffering more than a dozen tremors every single day.

Residents of Guy in Arkansas have lived through thousands of minor quakes in just six months after gas drilling apparently destabilised the earth beneath them.

So frequent are the tremors - which go up to four on the Richter scale - that they have been given their own name: the Guy earthquake swarm.

Only a fraction have been felt and the only damage so far has been a cracked window of a snack bar.

Locals however have reported strange shifts in the ground, odd movements and bizarre noises as the Earth moves beneath them.

They claim that the tremors began when a gas company began drilling nearby in a geological formation called the Fayetteville shale.

The companies dig deep wells which are injected with water, sand and chemicals at high pressure to get access to to gas pockets.

Secondary wells have to be dug for disposal of the waste, putting further strain on the area.

Residents in Guy claim that when the wells appeared, including one opposite the school, the shaking started.

Following complaints a state moratorium was imposed on any more drilling while an investigation is carried out, although scientists say they have already pinpointed the cause.

Scott Ausbrooks, a geologist with the Arkansas Geological Survey, said: ‘All this activity happened after these wells had gone online.

'What you could be looking at is a case where the strain was already there. You’d be fast-forwarding the clock,’ he told the New York Times.

His team have also already said there is ‘strong temporal and spatial’ evidence for a link between the drilling and the quakes.

Such a phenomenon has happened in the area around Guy twice before, however.

The worst was in the 1980s when the Enola swarm caused 550 quakes in six months with thousands of smaller tremors. Guy, by comparison has, had 640 over a comparable period.

In both instances, however, thousands of smaller tremors were recorded.

The state moratorium covering a 600-square-mile area around Guy is being reviewed on a month-by-month basis, although several wells are still operating subject to regular reporting.

Charles Morgan, a lawyer representing Poseidon Energy Services, which drilled one of the gas wells in Guy, said there was ‘no casual connection’ between the drilling and the tremors.

‘The evidence is anecdotal at best,’ he said.

Despite Guy’s record, it still has some way to go before it is the earthquake capital of the world.

The most closely watched earthquake town on Earth is Parkfield in California which sits atop the San Andreas fault, closely followed by nearby Hollister and Coalinga.

Tremors happen on an hourly basis in Parkfield and every few years residents can expect one of at least six on the Richter scale to rattle their homes.

Among the biggest was the first to be recorded in 1857, a foreshock to the great Fort Tejon earthquake which ruptured the fault from Parkfield to the south-east for over 180 miles.

I have always thought of volcanos as being somthing that could spring up anyplace at any time. Under the crust is what magma?. So if you think of it as skin and pimples we only know where the ones that are or have been, not what will be rite.

Yes.

From your source:


Harmonic tremor is a sustained release of seismic and/or infrasonic energy typically associated with the underground movement or venting of magma and/or volcanic gases.



Perhaps this could pertain to gases? I just don't know....
