I hear ya Robin. I have a really bad feeling about this one...here's to hoping it doesn't continue to escalate.

Sending a prayer out to my friends in the midwest.

With all the rain would that make a difference. I remember they said a week ago about the water in the ground turning to ice and that also caused quakes, but it is not cold now, but suppose to get cold.

I think Iris was essentially thrown off-ine.

The CERI recorder is crazy looking. Constant spikes...not liking the looks of this.

It seems like these are bigger than what are being reported...local news just broke programing to report information about the quake here in Little Rock

I'd like to urge everyone in the affected area to go to their news websites and post links back here and to the wordpress website for anyone interested in what's happening who might not know of this discussion.

The more people become aware of the potential risk, the greater the possibility of something being done.

why was this tremor different from the rest you have felt?
I am in So Cal on the San Jacinto fault line,I mean right on the fault line.Sometimes I hear what would sound like sonic booms coming from the fault. True story.

Someone did a thread about it and said just before the swarm that the ground water had frozen and It caused a quake. Not these quakes , But if it rains a lot could it make them worse. I can't remember what they called the quake.

Your part of the country is much more rocky, thus the energy is dissipated much more rapidly than in Ar. The sandy/sedimentary soil amplifies the vibrations and they bounce around for a lot longer time. Think of a bowl of jello that you move suddenly. Even after the bowl itself has stopped moving, the jello will quiver for a lot longer.

I read that article earlier today and was happy to see that someone posted the link here by the time I was able to get online for any length of time.

I'm not sure if anyone read through the trip report I linked to a few pages back, but one of the things it stated, was that spent frac'ing fluid will sometimes be used in roadbed settling. Which means it's being sprayed indiscriminately in places where people and the environment will be exposed to it even more so than it is at present.

Really makes me shake my head in shame as a member of the human race sometimes.

It's no wonder sentient beings of other than earthly origin seem to be so shy and don't make themselves more widely known.


My Lord it is such a shame and I could not agree with you more. They just had 3 quakes in a row about 11PM tonight. Could not believe it after being so quiet all day. This has me so stressed out and you wonder how big the earth quake has to be before people wake up.
Greed for lives and what will we have left?

God, Robin, stars to you, you are the damn quake whisperer! I know I've seen you say on this thread that you've been seeing a pattern of smaller ones building up to a big-ish one. I seriously wonder if the storms moving through added more H2O to the equation. Wow. The MSM are not even covering this yet.

Shoutout to everyone in the quake zone, does everyone seem to be okay? Any reports of local damage? Stay safe however you can! Major hand-wringing here. Wow.
