There are more earthquakes. See here modernsurvivalblog.com...


A different way of looking at quake stats...
Instead of a rolling avg., a year-to-date.

Magnitude 8 - 9.9
2011 Earthquakes (1)
annual average (1)
100% of 20yr. YTD avg. until day #255

Magnitude 7 - 7.9
2011 Earthquakes (15)
annual average (14)
150% of 20yr. YTD avg. until day #255

Magnitude 6 - 6.9
2011 Earthquakes (152)
annual average (134)
162% of 20yr. YTD avg. until day #255

Magnitude 5 - 5.9
2011 Earthquakes (1,825)
annual average (1,319)
198% of 20yr. YTD avg. until day #255


And maybe this happens one every so many years.
But three in one hour is still not that normal.

There are literally thousands of threads on here.. And I'm sure some are earthquake update threads..

I have to agree with the other posters.. It is annoying to see EARTHQUAKE JUST HAPPENED!!!!!!
Only to find it's a measly and perfectly normal 5.0 or something..

Anyway why do people need to come to ats to find out minor earthquake news? Are there not many site that specifically deal with this and have regular updates throughout the day?

Only the massive destructive ones should really be reported here..

See agree, I swear I also feel that changes are afoot but thinking logically and looking at Data and not coming on Ats every day maybe I would think Differently. I guess coming here everyday and speaking to like minded people it keeps the doom and gloom fresh in our minds , even though we may not be the ones in search of doom and gloom ...If you will.

The Fragile Earth Forum - 'Earthquakes' is there for people to report these quakes - are you saying they shouldn't?

Surely that's what that huge main thread on the forum is for. You really don't have to follow the thread if you're not interested - many people are.

No no man you have got me wrong, do yourself a favour and look at the stats it is impossible to disagree. Really I'm just as keen as the next guy to see something massive in the world take place and cause a revolution. I just don't think that and earthquake is the key. Really since the Japan quake there have been non stop earthquakes being posted on Ats , some even a Magnitude 4 . I'm posting for that reason bro, because the same things have happened (quake wise year after year) I'm not sure , maybe it's our minds playing tricks on us that we think more should be taking place because of where we are now in humanity. I'm allowed my view too.


I understand


We need to have a active real time quake thread on ATS.

would be nice if it was one thread tho.

One thread so we wouldn't need multiple treads on the same thing.

Well look at that well i will now thanks for the info.

You're Right! There are many seismographic sites that people can check out to see if there's been a quake but some people like to discuss same. That's their choice and that's what makes ATS a versatile site - to be enjoyed.

Here is a good chart of earthquake statistics.
According to this, there are roughly 3 - 4 earthquakes a day every year that are 5.0 - 5.9, or roughly 1319 a year.

It also says there should be one 6.0 - 6.9 roughly every three days.

I do think it is very interesting that there have been a series of earthquakes lately in places that generally (as far as i know) do not have quakes too often in recent history, but I can also agree that we are probably just a lot more aware and alert to earthquakes nowadays, especially since Japan and all of us thinking about Oct. 28 2011 and/or the 2012 date.

I definitely think something is changing. We can all feel it. But we should be scientific in our research and accept the fact that not everything we are seeing is in direct result of the approaching changing of times.

Namaste.


Thanks for the link. I am still learning about EQs anything to help me understand the significance of the rocking and rolling is greatly appreciated. I do feel something is in the air..I just don't know what it is and I don't know how to interpret events around me. Maybe EQs, and meteors are normal..just feels way weird. Maybe I want change.

Thanks, I have copied this and will print it out for easy reference. Stuff like this is awesome when one is attempting to make sense of what feels a lot scary. I appreciate your efforts.

No !!!! It's not weird it's normal by earthly standards ,


Show me how this 4.4 eq + 8 aftershocks is normal by 'earthly standards' please.

I would like to see documentation and references to prove that this is normal.

According to wikipedia's entry on the Balcones fault through central Texas:

The Balcones Fault zone was most recently active about 15 million years ago during the Miocene epoch.


I have researched the USGS history of quakes in Texas, and I cannot find anything like a 4.4 reported in this region since records were taken over 100 years ago.

All historical Texas quakes of this size have always occurred far to the north, south , east and west by hundreds of miles in distance.

Go look it up yourself, you will see. I have dug into this one fairly deep and I cannot locate anything that corresponds to this eq swarm.

So go ahead, show me how it's 'normal'. I am all ears. If you can find anything I will retract my post and admit you have disproved the assertions.

you should check out the topic Quakewatch 2011, looks like it's only relative to whats happening right now, and that the posters have been watching this activity for sometime.. also they really seem to know what they are talking about? I don't know so I wouldn't be an authority.. hope that's helpful.

And there has been one measuring 5.0 yesterday morning in Crete, and another one 4.5 this morning, also in Crete... Actually Greece has had 50 quakes since last night

I don't think a lot of this is normal. We now have 3 magnitude 6 quakes, Cuba, New Zealand and Japan all within moments of each other. Sorry you cant tell me this is normal activity. Something is going on and it doesn't look to be good

I am so new to this site and so new to watching these "EVENTS" (weather,earthquakes,meteors,global warming) that are occuring all over the world and now more frequently it seems in the U.S. It can be so confusing for someone like me who starts to read about this and then a big argument breaks out. I can certainly understand people having different points of view on a subject and I love a good debate, but it really does become hard to gain any knowledge when a debate turns into an all out grudge match to debunk another's post. I would love to see some hard core evidence of how this is "normal" (earthquake activity), cause that certainly would ease ones mind, or some hard core evidence on how this is something we should be seriously concerned about, cause we'd definitely need to be ready. It becomes frustrating when you are searching for the truth, and that's why I'm here, and you have to scroll through page after page of an argument that really doesn't include any facts, or seismic proof of what the poster is saying. That's just an opinion from someone who doesn't think I'm so very smart, and certainly isn't an expert on anything.

Okey Dokey... to Dreamfox1: Muzzleflash: Notsofunny... my apologies... I just scrolled back up and skipped the speed reading I had previously done and do see a lot of very intelligent proof to what you are saying.. guess we know who the debunker is lmao!

I came here because only the massively destructive quakes were being reported on the news, and then only for a short period of time because the death and destruction boosts ratings for a little while.. well until atleast something more massively important happened, like say Beyonce got pregnant, or Gaga dressed like a man.. I mean c'mon. The reason why people come here is for the TRUTH, if I wanted to never hear about doom and gloom, I'd have the T.V. on right now watching The Simpsons or Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.. something truly entertaining that makes us all forget that there is a real world going on out there and some of it quite frankly is a little bit scary.

Waking up to three 6+ quakes in my inbox isn't the world's most settling experience.

I won't go over the numbers again for any misinformed folks who think 6+ isn't rare, but I will note that this feels like it's going to break the curve, and next year's numbers on their frequency will surely be higher -- because we sure seem to be having a bumper crop on them this year, when normally of the tens of thousands of quakes which happen they are only a hundred or so of this magnitude.
