There was another one about 15 minutes ago, a 3.2 in Greenbriar.

Arkansas has a diamond park where you did up diamonds for a small entrance fee. The diamonds are in a field.
How did diamonds come to the surface and end up in the field? The took an express elevator to surface from the Earth's mantel via Volcano. There is probably a caldera in Arkansas that may be waking up. This is my best guess. I always wanted to try digging for diamonds there, supposedly you are allowed to keep what you find. Diamonds are the Earth's oldest mineral, 999,000,000 years in the making.

Not great info.. may be a non-issue but I heard it, so I'll report it like a parrot.

As most know, my most recent work history has me dispatching for trucking companies and regional storage facilities...from KC caves to Carthage underground, Springfield unerground, and Branson underground "least well know of them all"
I personal friend in the Branson Underground said they have received an alert.."very informal" in his words, about possible seizmic sp? activity.
Now I realize this is quite a long ways from the area this thread focusus on, by way of straight line its 100 miles or so, but keep in mind its where the Ozarks limestone plateau and the Arkansas Mountains meet, and is the same river basin.

I'm sure its nothing, and wish not to make this scare anyone, this is also the same area/fault that in 2009 with the large floods had a big scare of loosing the Table rock dam......."thats huge" pediaview.com...
TableRock Lake sits around 925 feet above sea level
Next dam BullShoals is @ 654 ASL
that would make around a 300 foot wall of water...rippin straight through Arkansas. 3million acres if I'm not mistaken "contained water" info.s in the link above..
That would affect millions all the way from Branson, Missouri to Shreveport, LA..

Could Edgar cayce be right and this whole area sinks and becomes an inland sea?

Is New Madrid really a Super Volcano? or just a volcano period? Is that what some of you are thinking'?

ummmm, no and no and no
New Madras (New Madrid is a city) is the fault zone where these AR quakes are occurring.
Volcanic activity is readily known in the area west of the swarm radius.
The Hot Springs are likely part of an ancient caldera formation.


Geysers, Fumaroles and Hot Springs
A fumarole is vent where gases, either from a magma body at depth, or steam from heated groundwater, emerges at the surface of the Earth. Since most magmatic gas is H2O vapor, and since heated groundwater will produce H2O vapor, fumaroles will only be visible if the water condenses. (H2O vapor is invisible, unless droplets of liquid water have condensed).

Hot springs or thermal springs are areas where hot water comes to the surface of the Earth. Cool groundwater moves downward and is heated by a body of magma or hot rock. A hot spring results if this hot water can find its way back to the surface, usually along fault zones.

A geyser results if the hot spring has a plumbing system that allows for the accumulation of steam from the boiling water. When the steam pressure builds so that it is higher than the pressure of the overlying water in the system, the steam will move rapidly toward the surface, causing the eruption of the overlying water.

Some are thinking ... between the influx of fluid (from multiple sources), the fault zone seemingly destabilizing, the bird deaths, fish kills, kimberlite pipes, history, sediment, silica deposits, ancient volcanoes awakening across the globe and other contributors may be leading to a magnanimous disaster sooner than anyone cares to speculate.

exactly, when, where, how ... is anyone's guess but together we are trying to see a bigger picture than msm is willing to share.
*** did you know the only active, public diamond mine in the US is not far from this swarm locale?
source: geology.com...

There is currently only one active diamond mine in the United States. This is at Crater of Diamonds State Park near Murfreesboro, Pike County, Arkansas.

how are diamonds and volcanoes connected?
source: www.amnh.org...

Diamonds ascend to the Earth's surface in rare molten rock, or magma, that originates at great depths. Carrying diamonds and other samples from Earth's mantle, this magma rises and erupts in small but violent volcanoes. Just beneath such volcanoes is a carrot-shaped "pipe" filled with volcanic rock, mantle fragments, and some embedded diamonds. The rock is called kimberlite after the city of Kimberley, South Africa, where the pipes were first discovered in the 1870s. Another rock that provides diamonds is lamproite

call me crazy but i think it's ALL connected.

And another < 2 at 7:07 cst off from GEE



USGS is sure being stingy on listing some of these smaller quakes in their lists...

Maybe the birds died from exposure to sulfuric gases or methane gases escaping from a crack in the caldera.
There's and article on the web about a possible volcano errupting in AR in the 1800's. The Diamonds say it all in my mind. I am so glad I told my husband "No I do not want to move to AR for his job." The recession shut down that factory anyways and two AR families had to come to our factory for work. They hate it here in this state, but their lives may be far safer now. The AR also has sever weather patterns in the spring. All those underground storage places, our company's back up computer is in one, may soon collapse. The aliens in the ATV mine story will also be trapped down there. If they come up from underground you know it's time to get you BOB and leave. I wounder what clues the Pompeii people had before the volcano blew....
If you have a boat or something stored underground at one of those facilities maybe you need to get it out and keep it on your lawn for the rest of the winter.

I don't typically freak out about earthquake threads, but this spat of quakes over the last several days is making me freak out.

The magnitudes keep increasing daily....so, for sure a 5.0+ is on the way today....right??

St helens had a big one not too long ago as well....


I am thinking the same thing.....that a 5.0 is bound to happen by this weekend.

If one happens, is it safe to safe that the quaking will continue and increase?

Goodness, I leave for a few hours and this thread grows by 14 pages! I think that Ausbrooks may have a point about the disposal wells, based upon my own eyeball analysis of the distribution of the earthquakes relative to the wells. However, I surely would like to know the details behind his opinion. The curious thing about all of this is that if I were Ausbrooks, I would have the Arkansas Attorney General on speed dial and would be seeking an immediate injunction against disposal well operation at least until the current situation subsides.

Since I live fairly close to the quake action, I am constantly searching the web for "new" dead bird reports. I do believe that some of these deaths are related to what’s happening in AR.

Today’s search does reveal a small group of dead birds in Bowling Green KY.........And of course we are getting the standard Governmental line of why..


They say the birds may have crashed into poles wires cords or even cars because of low visibility at night.


This report is from the local news station which reported the story with a couple lines on their website......
These deaths of 50+ birds occurred on February 14th , about the time this latest swarm kicked off.

Hmmm...

All the fracking has weakened the cover that's holding everything in, maybe?

They should put a stop to all fracking, not just the waste injection wells.

Both of them are bad, but the fracking has created instability by fracturing the rock and introducing chemical laced water that lubricates the gaps.

You may be right. However, my point was that if Ausbrooks believes that the disposal wells are the issue (and I suspect he might be right as well, but I require more information), then it is curious, that he has taken no action to halt them pending further investigation.

I am not surprised that no action has been taken, the energy companies have lined the pockets of anyone who matters in the equation that lets them do whatever they want to.

I believe that the whole state of Arkansas could fall into a sinkhole, blow into the sky like Mt. St. Helens or melt into a bubbling mud pot...... and there would still be fracking and injection disposal going on in Texas, Missouri, New York and Pennsylvania the next day. There's just too much money involved.

There is always magma underneath somewhere!

Injection yes - but by the gas companies.
