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

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.

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?
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.
