In light of what is going on, a 3+ quake in upstate New York is, IMO, a big deal. Now it is buried behind yesterdays news and most won't even notice it. blah.

Like you're NOT busy WC?? They are supposed to be busy DOING THIS!

Sure makes you wonder............

The "north country" and the Albany area in NYS as well as southern Ontario, Canada seem to be seeing more earthquakes since Japan. I live in central NY. This year we've had more earthquake, small as they are, than I can ever remember. The earthquakes hit near the Massena / Cornwall fault. Massena, NY is where the biggest earthquake hit in NY, it was a 5.0 in 1944. People thought they were being bombed rather than it being an earthquake. It did do a significant amount of damage to the area at the time.

I talked to my brother in law just a little while ago. He works in DC. Quite ironically he did NOT feel the earthquake. He knew something was up when a chandelier started to sway. FEMA first told them NOT to evacuate but to stay put. People still went running out of the building.

Your not imagining it, it is happening. My ears are ringing in Arkansas and the real sharp pains are quakes hitting and the micro quakes. Eating corn does help with the ringing and I can attest to that. Both my ears are at it again now and I look and see a few smaller quakes in CA showing up on USGS and a 5.3 in Vanatu.

Thank you so much for your post - I also have been experiencing more ear discomfort yesterday and today - but its harder to try and connect it with specific EQ event(s) because it is less intense, and comes and goes more gently than the original experience - and with so many smaller events happening, I had given up trying to connect the dots.

I wish I had more time. It's all in the inner ear where we sense balance. It's liquid filled and you got all these little hair like things that flop from side to side like coral in the oceans when waves wash back and forth. Look up a cut away inside the ear and you'll see what I mean. It's the movement throwing you off. And the teeny tiny vibrations overload your senses and you get ringing.

Susan, I have had more of that inner ear preasure as of late (last couple days)


As to Oklahoma. No real reason. Just an.....impression.

I'm just a newbie here so I don't really have anything to add. I just wanted to Thank you westcoast for starting this thread. I live in PA and felt the quake which really put me on edge. I never thought I'd be experiencing earthquakes here. Anyway, thanks again and keep up the great work!

Thank you Robin - I have been reading your info for a time now and really appreciate what your doing. The whole thing with my ear threw me mainly because I never experienced anything like it in my 40 years of so cal earthquakes. But I'm sure learning a lot!!

I think the Japan quake helped a lot of of us solidify the physical affects of a quake. Those of us that were communicating in the few weeks prior, up to and after learned a WHOLE lot. I sincerely believe in the physical impact of it. was thousands of miles away, but it caused the whole planet to ring. St louis rose and fell an inch for cryin out loud. I think it also taught some of us to listen to our intuition. made us take a good long hard look at life in general.

Anyways. It is a balance between being aware and being obsessed. Pay attention....just don't let it consume you.
(then again, my getting consumed is one of my indicators...

You are doing such a good job. I really enjoy hearing the theories and thoughts passed around on this thread. Thank you so much for creating it.

Peace and love to you and yours!! xoxox

Westcoast, you mentioned earlier one of the areas you expected future activity was Ohio, among other places. I respect your theories and was just wondering what led you to that conclusion. And is there a specific part of the state you expect it as fracking is now the latest rage here. Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the link, and no, I hadn't seen that article. So much info coming out of Russia lately. It could be disonfo or disclosure, who knows. Also out of Russia, are rumors that the east coast earthquake was an underground nuclear explosion. Terrorism or accident, not sure. Just interesting and scarey stuff from Russia.

Westcoast...I'm in PA and was wondering the same thing. What makes you think PA and are you looking at a specific part?

reply to post by westcoast

Yeah....I agree. All eyes on USGS or me tonight. Its puzzling and different scenarios running through my mind.

The US is unsettling active and hopefully it will settle sooner than later.

posted on Aug, 25 2011 @ 08:01 PM
So right now you guys, I am going with the theory that this is all involving the New Madrid. Because of that, I see the quakes from Colorado (maybe even montana) and Virgina/new york as symptoms coming from opposite sides of the fault. I tried picturing the continental US as a whole, with the biggest, known faults subduction zones.

Having said that, I think what we are seeing on the west coast and inland california/nevada as part of it too.

SO...those states I mentioned are basically in the middle, and where we know the New madrid will impact.

Oklahoma is standing out to me simply because, for whatever reason, my inner voice is telling me to watch it. That's it.

@Robin: SO...what kind of impact do you think this storm surge is going to have? Where is the moon at these days.....and don't you think Arkanses is eerily quiet????

posted on Aug, 25 2011 @ 08:50 PM
This is disturbing:

Article about the Washington monument being closed due to multiple cracks

If a 5.8 quake can do this...imagine what even a 6.2 would do. I picture monuments and buildings collapsing. Now there is also a hurricane bearing down on them with possible winds around 100mph still by the time it reaches them (someone correct me if I'm wrong here).

The quake, winds, storm surge, future quakes...yikes.

You caught me just as I was about to shut down the noogin. Too much information this week. I'm not just talking about the quakes. I got my own brain teaser and it's even more impossible that figuring out what's going on with these quakes. Soon my noodle will be limp from overcooking.

What affect will the storm surge have?

At present, the storm surge looks slightly smaller than when the tropical wave came in last week. I didn't even know what the hell that was. It's a surge that preceeds the hurricane. These waves are sort of like the conveyor belt that the hurricanes follow. So far, the surge is stronger than the storm, well no, I think I'd say the same. I can't pull up the old ones from last week to reference. There must be a way to find older graphs.

Although I believe the surge last week triggered the Colorado and Virginia quakes, I don't know if the second wave from the hurricane will do anything. Because anything that was so close to rupture, would have done so with that event. But. And it's big but. The stresses that the Virginia quake put on other siemic zones may be enough to make other faults ready to trigger. The surge and it's vibrations are relatively small. So, only the fault was ready to rupture. It just happens sooner. And maybe all at once, rather than several smaller ones over a long time.

The moon, where the hell's the moon. We just had the full one, so were waning and getting closer to the new moon. She's spooky. Because shortly after a new moon, we get action. I haven't check apogee. Give me a second. Well, it's perigee on the Aug 30 and new moon on Aug 29. I'll be on a plane. There not too close together. A day apart. There will be some extra influence. But not much.

If the storm surge intensifies at some point. I may start thinking more about a reaction in the faults. If a strong surge hits the Carolinas head on and really amplifies the microsiesm noise, then I'll be looking more closely.

Well. I think things are calming down. All the wierd stuff has happened. The rest of the quakes are very regular. Nothing to note as particular uncommon.

Next week I am offline. I'll enjoy it. I will not be able to study my earthquakes. I hope nothing much happens. I'll be lost for a few weeks. It takes watching the patterns daily to know what normal and what's not. And where current trends are taking shape and why.

Arkansas. Yes, I don't think it's a coincidence that it has gone quiet. I have watched this particular area beyond all the rest. After the swarm subsided. There were a few residual quakes. Then something wierd started happening. Quakes we're popping up all over the state in locations other than those along the Guy/Greenbrier fault. Quitman, Enola, and to the west. This continued for about two weeks. Then the active made one last stop back on the Guy/Greebrier fault. And then, just stopped dead. Nothing. This lasted for about a week and a half and we got Colorado. But first, I can't forget Chihauhau. Then Virginia. The northeast clustered. Before that, there was two weeks with a quake in the northest. Now we got more than a dozen along with the very big one.

I know the process because I had watching and waiting and taking notes. In my head. I'm real lazy. I'm not like Muzzy and Puterman and can make lots of programs and keep meticulous notes. I just follow along. And when something odd happens I make a note, and I watch the patterns.

Come to think about it. I'd really like to have all the graphs for Arkansas. You know how they have them for Yellowstone. I want to check back. I know there were periods of high microsiem noise. I'd really like to look back and see if there's a correlation. I remember them well. But didn't start observing intently until January.

I don't think Puterman would have them. Crud. If anyone can find them please let me know.

reply to post by Robin Marks

Thanks Robin....I'd like to see some charts on that too. Those microseisms. Hmmmm....

My one worry about the Virginia quake is that we really don't know if that relieved anything at all. Since we now have all those quakes to the North....seems things are just kinda starting to settle a little. Question is; how far? Is it into the next 'notch' or just starting to go?

I still invision it all connected to the New Madrid. If it is, we should start seeing some more movement along there shortly.....may take a little while for the energy to transfer, but I think it will.

Have fun next week! I spent five days last week away from my computer. It was nice.

didn't spend much time observing today so i really have no input at this time.
am surprised to see VA & CO active again today but honestly, it is to be expected as the core shifts to its new position inside this wonderful big blue marble.
