Something is going down now on GEE in Waverly TN. It is all over the place but I don't know how to read it.

hey WC, i posted this on the other 37th parallel thread but now am thinking those here might be interested in the info too ... this is USGS material so it may not be complete but here is a listing of world-wide EQ activity on or very near the 37th (N&S) parallel, from the past 7 days (only) ... i had no idea there was sooooo much

Believe in what? That earthquakes happen a lot and follow strange or complex patterns due to the physical shape of the crust and internal Earth pressures?

I don't really see what part of that is unfeasible or nonsensical.

Perhaps you should explain what it is you think people believe, rather than just merely throwing a vague insult which doesn't even apply to the context very well.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with people discussing recent quakes and looking for clues that may help us assess the risk values of various locations globally and work with a better set of odds, etc. It is a natural human process to investigate things that we do not understand yet.

If only more people thought that way, the world would be a far safer place. Building codes would be up to par, rather than the consistent reminder that people cut corners and do not build things strong enough to withstand historically known hazards. Then disasters wouldn't be so devastating.

What if everyone remained vigilant and had backup supplies of canned foods, batteries, water, first aid kits, etc?? Then things wouldn't be such a tragedy the weeks after the disaster struck now wouldn't it?

You know who the real fear monger is? It's those who go around trying to pressure people into not talking about the real dangers that exist on Earth and creating new ways to mitigate the damages they may cause. Simply because they are afraid of discussing the unknown, and don't think we should discuss it either. It's too scary!

Don't fear the unknown. Embrace it and make it into the known. Conquer your fears, do not let them conquer you.
ok you are right but tell me is Northern Peru on the 37th parallel. here you go, more earthquake activity in the state of California today than all of the east coast in a hundred years. Go now and start a thread that California will fall into the Pacific any minute and that all should flee the west coast...go now and do that

I am in Missouri near the 37th parallel. I'm probably getting swept up in the fear mongering but I have been getting shaky and dizzy the last 24 hours. Yesterday I almost fell down the stairs and this morning I randomly fell into a wall after losing balance. I am a young adult male and have never had these problems before. I thought it was very odd and then I read this thread connecting the two oddly placed earthquakes in CO and VA and then that people often have these odd symptoms and then looked at the 37th going straight through the New Madrid area.

Hope nothing happens.

You are turning this into way too broad a topic.

We are discussing some very specific events....I have cautioned against taking the theories and applying it to everything as you are suggesting. Let's just keep to the topic at hand.

No, the quake in Peru is not on the 37th.......but it was a nice jolt. That's about it. Has nothing to do with this thread.

I will state though that the crazy waves you are currently seeing in GEE are P and S waves. Pretty cool. eh? Most people don't realize how the waves froma distant quake travel around the world several times over, like ripples in a pond. We don't feel it, but it's there. We live in a closed ecosystem guys. You should have seen the waves from the Japan quake! That was a (hopefully) once-in-a-lifetime experience.

I have never really had an interest in this before but your knowledge and passion has really got me involved. I am not worried about THE BIG ONE, it is just so cool to learn this stuff and see mother nature at work. Thank you for informing someone like me who has no idea what I see but a willingness to learn. That is fantastic to watch happen in real time. I love the ripples in a pond. We are all connected, huh.

p.s. the Waverly site lines have all closed down on me so I am moving on to different locals.

Virginia got a nice jolt. Thats about it...did you also reprimand others about russian wmds right here on your thread..You yourself are on the edge of your seat waiting for something to happen even an earthquake in NY.Show me USGS recognizes a quake in New York happened ...I'm calling b.s. thats all. There is more quake activity in Cali. today than the U.S. east coast in a hundred years yet Cali. is still on the map. Maybe it was just an earthquake in Virginia...just an earthquake ....only an earthquake

Yes, it was just an earthquake ... much larger than any in this area in our brief recorded history.

Take a look at your post to stars ratio for ATS. I would suggest that the ratio would be a good indicator of your tendency not to post information that contributes to the advancement of the OP topics. Instead, you enjoy simply dismissing people and putting down what they have to contribute.

I am confident that there are many here who are interested in the ongoing discussion and study of the OP topic. Would you care to contribute constructively?

Be Well.

actually my star search on this thread was very nice and stopped yesterday when the ground stopped shaking in Virginia...after the ground stopped shaking this thread produces russian wmd's and people in Missouri feeling sick and are sure any minute now the New Madrid Fault will explode the thread is full of them but only after the earth quits shaking on the east coast...yet I am a bad guy...have it your way and see you in another hundred years when the ground shakes on the east coast

It's not going to take a hundred years. Mid-continental quakes are different than plate boundries. The Virgina quakes have already primed the next siemic zone by changing stress loads. It may not happen this year. But it may. You can't view this event in isolation.

You can rightly say that no one can predict with accuracy where, and when the next one comes. And by that same measure, you can't say another won't happen for a hundred years. Mid-continental quakes come in clusters. Do your research. New Madrid 1811/12. There were three large quakes. With swarm preceeding, during and afterward in varying locations.

From this example, it suggests there may be more to come.

Well ofcourse it might just be an earthquake....no more and no less. Haven't I already said that???

I am not making any bold claims here, just asking some questions and looking at some possibilities. I am the first one to say that we have a whole heck of a long ways to go before we can even pretend to understand how this all works. That is why I am fascinated by it.

I'll clarify what I think:

The two quakes yesterday in Colorado and Virgnia.....both are rare (per recent recorded history), both happened whithin hours of each other at similar depths. I began this thread by stating it may simply be a coincidence. I am leaning towards more of a common cause now, but to say what that cause is is nothing more than speculation.

I am certainly not hoping for anything bad to happen. That is presuming a lot. I had the New York station pulled up because I randomly selected stations at opposite points of the country just to keep an eye on things. I posted the picture of the live seismo from GEE, it was NOT made up. USGS has been behind the ball for over a day now,so I expect this one to pop up on the list sometime in the next day or two. Obviously it wasn't that big or else people would be reporting it.

I never said these quakes were indicators of mass destruction, only that it warranted keeping an eye on things and paying attention to other, possible indicators of a common cause.

I am looking for both scientific, fact-based research, information and theories. This is also ATS....so pretty much anything goes with what people are going to post and discuss. Ya know, sometimes that discussion leads
to amazing things. I believe in keeping an open mind.

I may not agree with what some of the posters on here are linking and saying, but I do my best to keep my threads on track and not to criticize. I appreciate thinking outside the box and applying that to known science. If you don't appreciate it, there are about 2,000 other threads you can read!
However, if you have anything to add, it would be welcome.

can you be a little specific as to when this might occur? then the kid in Missouri can just be sick instead of thinking he is gonna die

You're showing a lack of understanding geology and contridicting yourself.

Robin can guess at a range..but he certainly can't predict exactly when......you would want that?

I suggesst you read through some of the quake threads....especially yellowstone and the Arkansas swarm. Lots of great, educational material there.

exactly and Montana and Wyoming are still in tact along with Yellowstone Park. Still there, along with California and Central Oregon all still there....hummm so is Canada...still there....ground stops shaking in Virginia yet we talk about every other place and sickness and even russian wmd's

Yup...thought I may have seen another one, but there was so much interference from the Peru quake that I wasn't sure enough to say anything. I am really interested now in the history there. Anyone want to take the plunge on that one?? I've got some things I have to get done.

I'm not going to continue to banter with you because it is contributing nothing to this thread and just weighing it down with useless posts.

Only thing I will comment on is your observation of Virginia's silence. This adds to my suspicions, actually. With a quake of that magnitude, we should be seeing several more quakes in the 2.0 range and numerous micro quakes. So far today....nothing. That in itself is unusuall, and more telling of a foreshock. Thanks for pointing it out.

But...If you can't keep an open mind, and are so flippant about what's being discussed, why are you here??? You're just taking space away from serious posters!

Go home.....isn't that your mother calling??!!!
