I live in minnesota and as far as i know we do not have earthquakes. My mother is 84 years old and she has lived in minnesota all her life and has never exsperienced an earthquake in minnesota and neither have I. All the earthquakes and other freakish events happening around the world and now an earthquake in Minnesota. My brother lives in alex and i would like to call him when he becomes available to talk to me about it. I would like some input on this.

Yo, fellow Gopher!



This is news to me, but with all the tectonic activity throughout North America it's about time it catches up with us.

Is the sleeping giant, a.k.a. New Madrid Fault, beginning to wake from its 200 year slumber?

I sure as hell hope not.

Um, it was a 2.5.

That's not even something people normally feel.

Are any oil/gas companies there? Doing any fracking?

How about in ND? They've been doing some in the Bakken formation, but I'm not sure about eastern ND. Might be worth a look.

Hmm, well it says at the bottom of OP's link:


It was recorded at 3.1 on the Richter Scale


Also, if it was a surface quake, you would definitely feel it.

Mag 2.5 Minnesota


5 km (3.1 miles) set by location program


Not terribly high, but.. hmm.

The first recorded earthquake in Minn. was in 1860. There have reported earthquakes since that time. None at this point have been very strong. I wouldn't get excited this one was only a 2.5. It is a surprise if anyone felt it.

I know that the earthquake was small, but it seems to me that something is definately brewing beneath our feet. All the crazy stuff happening around the world and so much activity everywhere and it is increasing. My question is, what is causing all this? I myself have never been in an earthquake and never want to either. Some folks are use to that sort of thing, not me. I love my feet planted firmly right where they are supposed to be. Are these earthquakes going to get more frequent? Whats going on? I know earthquakes happen, but not so many all the time. Now that, is not NORMAL.

That was the previous one. The current one was 2.5.




According to the U.S. Geological Survey, a 2.5 magnitude quake shook the city of Alexandria around 2:20 this morning.
...
The last time one was reported was in 1994 in South Central Minnesota.

It was recorded at 3.1 on the Richter Scale.


And the OP's source doesn't say that it was surface quake.

Please, read the whole article, but don't read anything extra INTO the article, okay?

I have been following earthquakes for years. Do you have any idea how often every single day the earth is shaking under some ones feet? There really hasn't been more earthquakes they are occuring in more densly populated areas. I agree that we are over due for some large quakes in the US which proves my point. We couldn't be over due if they hadn't occured before.

Another quake in an unusual place - interesting as I am sure
there have been at least 3 quakes such as this in the last
3 months in the US. I am Indiana and we had a quake
several months ago in a location where they have no
record of it ever having an earthquake.

I feel Mother Earth is waking and she has some
chain reaction changes in mind.

BTW I use to live in Elk River, Mn,. no quakes.

Actually, yes they do. Earthquakes happen all the time What's new is technology that allows us to know about every single little one.

Ok, so I've been holding my breath for awhile now before saying this in fear of getting booed off the ATS stage, my marine biology professor told us during lecture one day when we talked about the Japan tsunami, that she has friends within the USGS and mind you she isn't some quack, she has her doctorate degree in Biology from Harvard and another marine science degree from Berkley, well anywhoo, she told me that her friends with USGS have said that seismic activity has increased 10 fold in the last year in United States and even all over the world, she said they don't know why but that, and I quote, "something is defanantly going on, the earth some type of activity is going on."Just wanted to put this out there especially to the ones that say, "earth quakes happen all the time." Well there has been an abnormal number, though my professor said that nothing was mentioned whether or not the LARGER quakes have increased. She also said its "not a matter of if, but when," the big one hits here on the west coast.
Peace,
Marriah

I agree. Yes people are more informed of much more occurances because of t.v , internet, phones, videos and the likes. I still say that there seems to be an increase in all kinds of activities. Come on peoples, tornadoes ravaged the countryside and left over 300 or more dead and it is only the end of april and we already hit a record number of tornadoe activities, not to mention more earthquakes, volcanoes and this wierd stuff with the fish and stuff goings on. Something is deffinately causing this to happen more frequent. You just cannot say it is normal. I agree with you marriah, something is just not right here.

Define 'Normal' in geological terms...

See all those mountain ranges in the US? Formed by major shifts in the Earth, so there must have been some pretty big EQs before

Watch Iris... its great instant view of 4.5 or higher quakes (the only ones really worth worrying about


www.iris.edu...





This one shows how many quakes per level

You keep saying there are 'more earthquakes' now.

Can you prove this?
