Largest earthquake since 1969 rattles state


www.todaysthv.com


According the the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), a preliminary magnitude 4.7 hit 4 miles northeast of Greenbrier just after 11:00 p.m.

It was felt across the state as well as into Missouri and Mississippi. Two aftershocks where reported afterwards, a 3.8 magnitude then a 3.6 magnitude.

So far, there have been no reports of damage or injuries.

Well here we go again.
Not Earth Shattering news (No pun intended) but, for those of us keeping up with earthquakes, it is just more of the same.
I happen to live just outside of St.Louis and I didn't feel anything. Probably too far North.
We did have a couple of tornados in the area last night though wich was rather scary and odd being in the middle of winter like it is. But then again we had one New years Eve too.

Back on topic,
things are heating up and as always there will be those who say this is all perfectly normal and then there will be those who believe it is a sign of the coming Zombie Apocalypse.

I say, just be prepared because whatever "IT" is.
it's getting more frequent.

Thanks for posting this. I have family down that way, so I've been watching for anything in that area.

Didn't know you were a fellow St. Louisan. I was born there, and lived most of my life there.

It is the Earth shifting as humanity attempts to ascend. Gaia is releasing eons of negative energies.... so the inevitability of many more quakes is high. Also, volcanoes should start up soon. Simple evolutionary cycles.

The weight of the redistributing waters from the melting glaciers on Earth's thin crust has a lot to do with the rattling around.

Hang on and watch the show as some of humanity rises to the occasion into the 5th dimension.

There was another 4.7 not long ago and many other quakes - Arkansas is shaking.
Also about 15 minutes ago our house shook - felt like a quake to me and I am familiar as
I use to live in Calif., in Ft. Wayne, Indiana. Anyone else feel anything?

Blujay, how are you doing?

I'm waiting and hoping the new dimension will be better than this current one.

Or it could be normal plate activity as the plates move around.........

And if the glaciers melting were heavy enough to do that, so many of them would have to have melted it would have raised the sea levels already to cataclysmic proportions......


Just sayin

What in the world is going on? Earthquakes in arkansas, misourri...the the plate tectonics have a meeting to scare the crap out of us.

Ah we sheep would prolly just watch fox news and lay the blame on terrorist attacks.

Or read ATS and lay the blame on HAARP.

Nothing special is going on, it's a minor earthquake in a place that is used to those.

seems like the strength of the earthquakes are getting more and more powerful. If i remember correctly, didn't most of them used to be less then 3 in magnitude?

I know that you are not seriously this dense and will chalk up your response to being tired.

I don't think ANYONE is saying that THIS earthquake is something special and something ABNORMAL!
If I am wrong please, somebody correct me!
It is not, and NEVER will be about AN INDIVIDUAL earthquake!
I know that this concept is not a hard one to grasp and being a fellow member of ATS
I know that you have the mental horsepower to grasp this.

I feel tacky for even repeating this ...

On the radio this morning the morning crew was talking about this earthquake. They said it was The Duggar Family running to the nearest sale at Aldi that caused it.

I confess that I laughed. A little.

I'm always interested in the correlation between earthquakes and the weather. A lot of people call me foolish for that, but Arkansas had some fierce weather right before this. And the sky near my friend's house was colored in the oddest rainbow. The the earthquake hit.

I hope people are all okay.

Yes, I felt something. I live east of Muncie about an hour south of Ft. Wayne. Have you felt anything else between today and the quake on New Year's Eve? I have felt a few rumbles and rattles since then but thought maybe it was my imagination.
I live on St. Rd. 32 about 20 ft. from the road and I swear traffic hasn't sounded the same on the highway since the quake, but once again I wonder if it is all in my head!?

So you felt it also - wonder where the epicenter was located. And yes I have felt some rumbles other than this since New Years.

Or would be normal plate activity, if it were no a plate boundary, but since it is a mid-continent fault, you have to look at it entirely differently.

Think of dropping a dinner plat and then putting it back together as well as you are able. You then have a plate shaped pile of pieces that used to be a cohesive whole. You can then push on one portion of the pile and get movement in another area that you're not touching at all due to the force distribution.

Just because you had a HUGE quake in one area, does not mean you're going to have another in the same exact area.

Or that smaller quakes are releasing pressure, all they are doing is redistributing the pressure to other zones within the network of faults.
