im still doin research...but i think that the overdue memphis earthquake may be coming along soon...woke up this morning to the smell of sulfur...theres been those swarms of quakes goin on over in ark....if you look at history...when the quake hit here in 1811..residents reported foul odors in the air much to the smell of sulfur....next thing im waiting for is the sand plumes...but theres already reports of them in ark....im new to the site..but have been reading this post for awhile now...i live here in the heart of memphis...and theres been a lot of chemtrails...a lot of sinkholes randomly forming...thank God no quake yet...but i fear it is near....

I live in Vilonia, Ar, south of Greenbrier and west of Beebe. I am very scared that something big is about to happen here up here and I would sell this house in a flash and leave if I had a buyer for it and have even considered just leaving anyway. I hear and feel these earthquakes on a daily basis, I have reported feeling the quakes on the shake reports and have even sent photos of damage on my home as they are shifting the ground and rattling things around and have done some damage. I don't believe for one minute that these earthquakes are not causing any damage as the news reports are posting, I think there are orders to keep that quiet out there along with what is actually going on. There is a moratorium out on earthquake insurance and you can't buy any coverage. I have been reading this thread and I do think that the bird, fish kills are tied in with it all. The Pine Bluff Arsenol has no more stock piles of chemical weapons and is no longer a threat according to the TV and radio adds and the evacuation signs for that are being removed from the state.
For instance, in addition to emergency personnel trained to help the injured, the foreman of the road department was trained in examination of bridges and roadways to assess damage for the public’s safety; the tax assessor was trained in making damage estimates and cost analyses on homes, businesses and other buildings, Scroggin said.

On a quick search, this is what I get from USGS:
"1811, December 16, 08:15 UTC Northeast Arkansas - the first main shock
2:15 am local time
This powerful earthquake was felt widely over the entire eastern United States. People were awakened by the shaking in New York City, Washington, D.C., and Charleston, South Carolina. Perceptible ground shaking was in the range of one to three minutes depending upon the observers location. The ground motions were described as most alarming and frightening in places like Nashville, Tennesse, and Louisville, Kentucky. Reports also describe houses and other structures being severely shaken with many chimneys knocked down. In the epicentral area the ground surface was described as in great convulsion with sand and water ejected tens of feet into the air (liquefaction).
1811, December 16, 13:15 UTC Northeast Arkansas - the "Dawn" Aftershock
7:15 am local time
A large event felt on the East Coast that is sometimes regarded as the fourth principal earthquake of the 1811-1812 sequence. The event is described as "severe" at New Bourbon, Missouri, and was described by boatman John Bradbury, who was moored to a small island south of New Madrid, as "terrible, but not equal to the first". Hough believes that this large aftershock occurred around dawn in the New Madrid region near the surface projection of the Reelfoot fault.
1812, January 23, 15:15 UTC, New Madrid, Missouri
9:15 am local time,
The second principal shock of the 1811-1812 sequence. It is difficult to assign intensities to the principal shocks that occurred after 1811 because many of the published accounts describe the cumulative effects of all the earthquakes and because the Ohio River was iced over, so there was little river traffic and fewer human observers. Using the December 16 earthquake as a standard, however, there is a general consensus that this earthquake was the smallest of the three principals. The meizoseismal area was characterized by general ground warping, ejections, fissuring, severe landslides, and caving of stream banks.
1812, February 7, 09:45 UTC, New Madrid, Missouri
3:45 am local time,
The third principal earthquake of the 1811-1812 series. Several destructive shocks occurred on February 7, the last of which equaled or surpassed the magnitude of any previous event. The town of New Madrid was destroyed. At St. Louis, many houses were damaged severely and their chimneys were thrown down. The meizoseismal area was characterized by general ground warping, ejections, fissuring, severe landslides, and caving of stream banks.

From USGS here:
Seems to be a bit of a contradiction to your post. Would like to see what geologist has changed this historical information.

There were no measuring devices in 1811-12. All charts and graphs he posted make claims to know how much energy was released and how big those quakes were - in other words imaginary and fake data that is made up out of thin air. Or are you disputing that there were no measuring devices for earthquakes in 1811-12. Please provide proof that there were measuring devices for earthquakes in 1811-12.
The first reported use of any measurement of earthquake intensity has been attributed to the Italian Schiantarelli, who recorded the intensity of the 1783 earthquake that occurred in Calabrian, Italy.
In AD 132, Zhang Heng of China's Han dynasty invented the first seismoscope (by the definition above), which was called Houfeng Didong Yi (literally, "instrument for measuring the seasonal winds and the movements of the Earth"). The description we have, from the History of the Later Han Dynasty, says that it was a large bronze vessel, about 2 meters in diameter; at eight points around the top were dragon's heads holding bronze balls. When there was an earthquake, one of the mouths would open and drop its ball into a bronze toad at the base, making a sound and supposedly showing the direction of the earthquake. On at least one occasion, probably at the time of a large earthquake in Gansu in 143 CE, the seismoscope indicated an earthquake even though one was not felt. The available text says that inside the vessel was a central column that could move along eight tracks; this is thought to refer to a pendulum, though it is not known exactly how this was linked to a mechanism that would open only one dragon's mouth. The first ever earthquake recorded by this seismograph was supposedly somewhere in the east. Days later, a rider from the east reported this earthquake.
