quite scary that the VA quake was even bigger than the two CO ones just a days ago.

also that the VA quake was so widelely felt all between the triangle of Ohio, Carolinas, & Ontario, CA.

HAARP? underground excavation activities? yea, why now and in this cluster pattern??

Puterman has been talking about the shale beds on the quake thread and I really think he is onto something with that perhaps being the common string that ties these all together.

There is massive drilling going on all across the states (and world) involving these shale beds and harvesting natural gas. The shale beds are very unstable and quakes this large can have an impact on other areas.

Please see his post here where he explains it.

hmmm, sounds kind of funny since not long after they did this test, it happened to haiti and guess who the first responders were? you guessed it, israel....seems after they did this test, earthquakes have just been popping up everywhere.....just sayin...maybe something to think about, maybe not......

www.israeltoday.co.il...






Israeli seismologists simulated an earthquake measuring 3.0 on the Richter scale by setting off 80 tons of explosives in the middle of Israel's Negev Desert on Wednesday morning. The explosion was used to test seismic and acoustic sensors in Israel and other Mediterranean nations as far away as France. Earthquakes of that magnitude are not severe and occur in the region about once a week. Most are not felt by Israelis and the residents of surrounding nations. Israel does, however, sit on the volatile Syrian-Africa Rift, and experts believe a major earthquake will hit the region in the coming years

studies of the same nature happened in central Cali.earlier this year and it did nothing. No hohum no nothing

I heard the quake even though I'm 80 miles sw of the epicenter. I thought it was a train but the sound just kept building for about 15-20 seconds then faded away. It was extremely loud.
I don't know if there is a connection but I moved away from the area that the quake happened just last year. Several years ago there were continuing reports of people hearing rumbling sounds from the ground. My suspicion is that they are indeed related.

what did the ones in Cali. measure on the richter scale? and is it possible that they learned how to make them much stronger?

Here's a clue.

www.abovetopsecret.com...

It's connected.

Here's another clue. Microsiemic noise.

folkworm.ceri.memphis.edu...

I have to stop thinking.


Ouch.

The waves from the storm surges combined with lunar tides caused groundwater to be disturbed which causes erosion. Along with the stress loads put on other faults from the Arkansas swarms and 4.7M caused both recent quakes. The noise in Windsor is the waves resonating through salt crystals and through the empty mine shafts. The sound vibrates to produce a hum.

It's all connected.

Notice that the Colorado quakes are near major mining operations.
In West Virginia, there are many, many mining operations.

Yes.

I have a thread dedicated to a rumbling noise I (and many others around the world) have been hearing for the past year or two. I have always thought it connected to the deep tremors that occur hear in the PNW, believed to be caused by the Cascadia Subduction zone (I also have a thread on that...in my sig).

Some of you might find These spectographs for the Pacific Northwest. They are part of the monitoring equipment for the deep tremors...I believe you can see the quake on there...and a whole heck of a lot of noise going on.

@Robin: I always appreciate how you can tie so many things together. Definate theories worthy of exploration.

same kind of study....my point is that only people on ATS had the whole continental US going up in a super Volcanoe...which didnt happen....in fact nothing happened

As of 3:45 PST here are the current USGS quake lists for both areas:

Virginia:



MAP 2.2 2011/08/23 19:20:26 37.911 -78.004 0.1 13 km ( 8 mi) S of Louisa, VA

MAP 4.6 2011/08/22 23:30:20 37.050 -104.774 5.0 17 km ( 11 mi) SW of Cokedale, CO
MAP 2.9 2011/08/22 13:52:34 37.094 -104.709 5.0 10 km ( 6 mi) SW of Cokedale, CO



While Colordo's list is growing (still nothing under a 2.1), Virginia remains oddly quiet. Although, on GEE there is definate noise.....we shall see!

Your post reminded me of something that happened here (New River Valley area of SW Virginia - Happened a minute or two after the main quake - I got a really painful vibrational pain in one of my ears, and our subwoofer started this bizzare rhythmic series of tones that we couldn't get rid of - only lastest about 45 seconds - but strange. Did anyone else experience strange sounds?

you didn't answer my question, did california simulate an earthquake like israel did?

Looks like Colorado may be building up to something:

Yes, it's been that way all day. There's lots of quakes in this swarm. Of course they won't post all the small ones until later. But we know that. The same happened with Yellowstone and it happened in Arkansas.

I wouldn't say it's building though. It seems constant and therefore would be releasing stress continually. This may prevent a bigger one. That doesn't preclude a big one, but it should make it less likely. Notice how Virginia has has only two reported. Ug. I may as well pull it up on GEE.

The United States Geological Survey plans to simulate and study small earthquakes in the desert this week using explosives and seismographs. For the Salton Seismic Imaging Project, officials will bury 3,000 seismographs around the Coachella and Imperial valleys and measure the impact of the explosions, which will simulate 1.5- to 2-magnitude earthquakes.

It is very rational to think that no major earthquake will follow any of the Colorado. or Virginia epicenters. Just thought I might throw it out there, you know like a little ham and eggs

There seems to be a connection between the quakes and HAARPs low frequency transmissions....This information is publicly available.... Check the induction magnetometer....

I'm not quite following you.

You are saying that because a simulated earthquake in the middle of the desert didn't trigger a bigger quake elsewhere, that neither of the quakes in question today could be a foreshock?

Ummm...okay.

The reality, is that no one can give a real answer either way. It is always speculation...some of it based on knowledge and historical data. The issue (IMO) with these two quakes are their location, size, depth and historical seismicity for the regions. They ALL raise questions. We may never get the answers.

@Robin: A nice one just hit Colorado...probably around a 3.8 to 4.0 (best guess)

(best guess)

you are linking my last 2 posts into 1
I am stating that the tests in the California desert didn't cause any earthquakes elsewhere. Not in China and not in a dusty old super volcano from 500yrs ago.....other last post I suggest that Colorado and Virginia quakes after settling might not rattle for another hundred yrs.

I immediately thought of this thread: Map of the strange sound phenomenon heard around the world

But none on that map seem to implicate the location of the recent quakes.
