I just saw this on twitter and thought I'd post it here.

Why is the weather channel now monitoring earthquakes in Arkansas? Something we should know? Is this more of the New Madrid fault?

Did you know Allstate has stopped selling coverage to people in coastal areas of va and md? Wonder how long before you can't get insurance against earthquakes in Arkansas...

No, there was a 4.7 and then a 3.8's. The ground is still literally shaking.

The 3.8 was at 11:18 Central time... the 4.7 was at 11:00 pm and 50 seconds on the dot.

This isn't that small...

Something is going to go down here, and it is going to be nasty when it does.

At least we have documented the FEMA request for bids on the millions of meals!

New Madrids does not run near little Rock. It looks like the new fault that was discovered is the culprit for it. This is nothing new though, last week they had a swarm of low level earthquakes hit the region. One speculation was gas / oil exploration, but I am not completely buying into that explanation.

Its entirely posible its from all the rain / snow melt we have been having lately. As unusual as it seems, China and its 3 gorge damn project is the example. They miscalculated a part of the weight in that area in terms of water buildup. It has placed stress not only on the damn, but the canyon walls around it.

New MAdrids is overdue for its release, and with all the tremors lately I wonder if we will luck out, and it will relieve its own stress in this small manner, or if we are going to see a disaster in the making.

Take a look at this article for some thoughts on this issue.

Also you might want to google 'induced seismicity"...you'd be surprised at what you'll find. There is a LOT of study evidence that points to seismic activity due to human (and especially hydraulic fracturing) related activity. The thread I linked to earlier has pages of research related to this very topic.

I was under the impression hydraulic fracturing was in direct relation to actually removing the gas / oil from the ground, not exploration to locate. I could be wrong though I am not versed in this area aside from what ive been reading lately. I know a new method has been developed that can remove oil from shale, which opens up a LOT of oil potential for the US, but I dont think its in practical use as of yet.

I was wondering if there were others on here from Memphis. I am from Memphis too, but just moved to Henderson TN a few months ago. Grew up in Frayser. I'll have to check with my parents and see if they felt it too. They still live in Frayser.
