Hi all! This is my first post and I'd like to reply to someone who doesn't know just what to think. VeniVidi, I believe that the whole purpose of this thread is to make you alert that there is a danger of a larger earthquake that could involve the whole area, depending on its severity and location. Beyond that, no one knows exactly.

I don't mean to presume anything about you, but I too live in an seismic zone and can remember a few scary times when my children were little. At that time, I did not trust our old house, so without alarming the little ones, I announced that we were going to have a campout weekend in our living room and watch movies, (which I considered to be the safest place in the house.) At that time I wanted us to be close together.

The important thing is to practice common sense and plan ahead intelligently. Have an evacuation plan with a preset meeting place, for instance. Have an agreement with a friend or neighbor that you will check on each other. Something I'd do nowadays is to be sure to have them wear a small jewelry store whistle on a chain to wear around the neck. (I know, I know, kids will wear it out before they stop testing it
) After seeing all the footage about Haiti, I can't help but think that it's a good idea for some people.

If you are feeling a bit panicky and anxious, then may I suggest you plan ahead, maybe even make a list of your fears and then make a plan for each fear. Consult websites about this. Keep coats and footwear by the door and dont't ever go outdoors if you could be hurt by snapped live wires or falling bricks. When you are satisfied that you have a plan for each eventuality, then I'm sure you will feel much better and as safe as you can be. I have been through lots of quakes, including the Alaska biggie, though I was in B.C. at the time, but I was suitably respectful of Mother Nature after that. Plans carry forward in life. For instance, I don't park under a transformer ever since my friend got caught in her car with the live wires bouncing all around her. (Hey, stuff happens.) If it helps, pray. Meditate, think clearly. Stay calm. Wiishing all of you well.

I hope I didn't make you more anxious.

I wish we had a good set of Fault line overlays for Google Maps, for the SE US, like they made for the W US Grrr...

I'll keep looking and see if I can find anything similar...

I'm looking a some sort of pattern/relation to these off center quakes...

Here's anothering interesting twist on Fracking...& I won't post any more oil or fracking info...not trying to be off topic since Fracking has been mentioned in the thread...

Snippet
"Among the many dubious provisions in the 2005 energy bill was one dubbed the Halliburton loophole, which was inserted at the behest of — you guessed it — then-Vice President Dick Cheney, a former chief executive of Halliburton.It stripped the Environmental Protection Agency of its authority to regulate a drilling process called hydraulic fracturing. Invented by Halliburton in the 1940s, it involves injecting a mixture of water, sand and chemicals, some of them toxic, into underground rock formations to blast them open and release natural gas."

Saw other sources as well but this one was simple...

I'm going to start by saying that I'm going to keep my personal opinions on "fracking" out of this for a second and just play devil's advocate. I have read this thread from the beginning and one thing keeps gnawing at the back of my head. (and may I just add first that a good researcher always keeps an open mind) It has been stated that this area in Arkansas is an ancient caldera; one that even produces diamonds. Yellowstone is also a caldera, albeit, not quite so ancient. Since Yellowstone is a caldera and there are earthquake swarms there, is there a "possibility" that this may also be a natural phenomenon, but one that we have never seen before simply because we haven't been on this earth long enough to witness it ?? OR is it unlikely because of the type of geological structure of the earth there? Or is this not a possibility at all and why not??

It seems to me they have to do this in order to secure cheap gas and oil if talk of the US losing the world reserve currency status comes to fruition. Anyway I digress ... thanks for keeping us informed, thanks to you lads I've managed to give the redneck cousins
that don't pay a blind bit of notice to this type of thing, a heads up and I think they may actually be taking me seriously
!!

BTW PuterMan, couldn't reply to your U2U, tsk, but sent the link via your wordpress blog.

Thank You !!!

This is what I am saying. This area is clearly having a PATTERN of earthquakes in repeating occurance and of different strengths.

But I do think we should drop the fraccing thing off the thread and focus on more constructive research/debate

Notice the drop of the lower right corner toward that AL EQ?

And here's more with AR Faults...

All the quakes in Arkansas now reaching over to Tennessee. The Arkansas quakes are increasing in size from time to time and now we begin with small quakes in TN and other locations - need to see a map. Makes me wonder if there is an undiscovered fault line, just wondering - or is it the Madrid itself??????

Florida yes - it was noted as such but appears to be in Alabama. I am trying to find a map of the connection and yes there is a connection.

Assuming that is 11:30 UTC then no and it does not appear to have been posted in the listings yet. I can see one at 11:25pm with a couple following so I guess they will get posted eventually.

I just want to state first, I agree with you that there is a connection. I'm just hoping you will elaborate on why you feel there is.

Thank you to the O.P. for this educational, thought provoking, and well delivered thread.I just finally finished reading the 47 pages of reply's and may I thank all of you that contributed something knowledgeable so that I may learn as much as I can about this. Even though I live in New England, I feel that as a fellow American that whatever affects my fellow brothers and sisters affects me as well. I hope that No major earthquake happens in the midwest or anywhere else for thast matter. I will stay tuned...

Hmmm...now looking closer at this map...



I see another possible connection to this...

2.3 2011/02/18 01:14:20 35.078N 84.304W 5.4 9 km ( 5 mi) ENE of Ducktown, TN


...look near the top right end of the "C" looking fault and where it passes...

And I'll throw this in as a "bonus"

Basically because the shale formations go right through as far as I can remember - i.e. from the GOM to Canada, but I was trying to find that darned image of the strata and so far I cannot. (But I will).

By the way, whilst I know this relates to something that is happening in Canada just get this.


For example, many fracs in the Montney play use CO2 as the frac fluid. Furthermore, water is not a good candidate for use as a frac fluid for the shallow shales of the Colorado Group of southeastern Alberta and southwestern Saskatchewan because of their sensitivity to water. Operators there appear to be using nitrogen or a mixture of propane and butane as the frac fluid instead.

They use gas to extract gas?

This PDF document is called Oil Shale Development in the United States: Prospects and Policy Issues. Whilst it is oil there are some very relevant item about water course pollution and some of the things than can be caused by extraction. Since Arkansas is not exclusively gas extraction I felt it relevant.

a friend of mine is visiting dauphin island of south alabama and was jolted by what she described as a mild earthquake. i haven't looked it up or anything but if true the coincidental nature of this is a bit scary

A few things:

We have another incoming flare.

We have just has a M6.6 flare from the Sun Source

Yesterday the USGS had on Their list the 3.8 as being significant. Today, this quake has been removed and the 4.3 has been put in it's place - no mention of the 3.8 or the 4.0. Source on top on the right hand side.

They had better hope there isn't a unknown magma chamber where They are drilling. Add Pressurized Diesel Fuel or the like to a magma chamber and it will blow this earth right out of orbit. --- And They want to do this near Yellowstone ---- as Robin said = insane!

WHAT??!! How can they remove any of those mentioned quakes? There is proof they happened. (IRIS and I have screen shots) What the heck?

They haven't removed them. They don't have much room on that listt so the larger one took precedence.

Just an observation. Feel free to tell me my thinking is way off on this one, because I don't like where my thoughts are leading me.

-Since the swarm began, ALL quakes have been at a depth of 5.9 to 7 km.
-Below that is the aquifer
-One post claimed that a lake was draining.
-They drill below that and crack upwards in the rock.
