So it's basically sitting right on top of it.....thinking the more distant station will help us out. More what we are used to reading regarding distance vs. registering, if you know what I mean.

Whatever the strength....there is a lot going on there!

Google Earth

There are a few volcanos but not close



closer view of the four quakes



Really interesting what you are seeing on GEE. Can you give us screenshots?

ETA
Look (It's from Dutch)

Here is the 5.3:



That's excellent you thought to check on local volcanoes! Star for joo!

Thank you TA


Two new ones




3.8 2011/08/23 07:17:58 37.099 -104.610 4.8 5 km ( 3 mi) S of Cokedale, CO
3.5 2011/08/23 06:56:59 37.110 -104.722 5.0 10 km ( 6 mi) WSW of Cokedale, CO

ok great, thanks wook and berk!

Now I have a rough amplitude reference since they posted those two- so we can tell much faster roughly what future ones are:

the 3.5 registered 120 microns/sec

the 3.8- 150 microns/sec

So adjust from there for upcoming ones.

and berk, here is a sample of the microswarm activity at the three station west and I were talking about:

I hate to be the one to bring this up but this IS ATS.

Mining activity can mimic earthquake activity. This is relatively near Denver airport where they are supposed to have all the underground facilities.

Perhaps they are doing a little underground building?

If you want to go REAL deep, it's also very very close to Dulce NM (much much closer than DIA is in relation). There are countless theories about an underground base being very close to this area. This story is complete with reptilians, aliens, the works! Since this IS ATS, I would say try doing a search on it, because there have been plenty of threads on it!


ETA: With that said, I'm going to bed. If I get awoken by a large EQ, I will come here first and report the experience.

Mining blasts have very specific waveform signatures, much different than what you are seeing in the screen shot I posted. In addition, the USGS has already posted at least four of these quakes, and if anyone knows the difference, it would be them. It's good you're thinking that way though.


This is definitely a localized swarm. Even some of the smaller ones are registering on all three stations. Another small one just hit. 1-2 range. Something's stirring down there, that's for sure.

well i just watched the news in longmont co and was going to make a thread about 5.5 in colorado. its already here so i will add some info. they felt it all the wat in kansas, vary rare for that to happen.



found this talking about it

I slept through that one. Live east of Colorado Springs so probably wouldn't have noticed if I had been awake! Felt the little shakers in the 60's when we lived in Denver.
Eldest son had just got home from kindergarten and was a real grouch. Told him to lay down on the couch and take a nap. But he didn't want to do that either. Whined and complained! A little 3.something hit and made the floor do the shimmy. He got on the couch and went to sleep. Had no problem at nap time for the rest of the year.
Later he told his little sis that she better take her nap or mom would shake the house again.
Lived west of Walsenburg for many years. Wish I was back there again. On the ranch and loving it. Oh well, such is life.

I'm roughly 80 miles north from the epicenter and did not feel or hear a thing last night. That might be normal for a ~5.3 magnitude quake. I lived in the Bay Area for 8 years, so I know how various magnitude quakes feel and sound. At least in California.

Possibly related or not, my wife and I could not get to sleep until well after midnight (quake was at 11:46pm MDT) and our cat did not come to bed until ~11:30pm. She was at the window for 4 hours, staring out at nothing I could see. All of this is unusual in our experience, but eh. It' seems easy to me to read meaning into something after the fact. Still, 'tis interesting to consider.

Here is an article from the Denver Post this morning




Sigala said there were several minor earthquakes that preceded the bigger one, including a magnitude 2.9 earthquake recorded about 8 a.m. Monday. A 4.6 quake was felt in the same area at 5:30 p.m., and a magnitude 3.0 quake was recorded about 9 p.m. There have been four aftershocks. Sigala said the area occasionally has swarms of earthquakes, some lasting days or weeks, but Monday's temblor was unusual. "A 5.3 is big for Colorado," she said.

Are you serious? This is well over 200 miles away from DIA.

Huh. The earthquake epicenter looks like it's about 100 miles away from Dulce, NM. If anyone wants to point at ATS-ish underground...uh, areas. Personally, I'm thinking earthquakes happen simply because it's the nature of our earth to have earthquakes now and again.

There is lots of shallow natural gas well drilling in the area where they recover excess water and return it to the subsurface.

I know it's Arkansas, but perhaps the same thing is happening in CO - fracking fluid is causing unnatural seismic activity.

Could be all those old coal mines finally caving in. Just my two cents! Son and wife are in LaVeta maybe one of his inventions finally worked!!! Oh No, maybe I should call him.
