I was sitting in the ready room at Wright-Patt and felt the tremor from Youngstown. Any body else feel it?

Yep, felt it, it was pretty strong.

I'm about 40 miles away. I didn't feel anything.

Wow.. Now that is an attention getter. 2.2km on preliminary estimates. Interesting.... They're digging much shallower there than the normal 5km range of the last year. That's the second one this month with an oddball depth compared to the whole series America has been watching in the strange locations this year.


Either they're digging....or we have one heck of a geologic surprise seeming to be winding itself up. The rest of the world has gotten a whammy of one kind or another...why not us? I guess we're really due for it, given the world map for 2011 events.

Hrrmmm,



Might wanna get used to this kinda thing folks...between fracking and being in a ribbon of high energy protons atm, I wouldn't go building any brick sh*thouses. That and being that close to the New Madrid fault.....the Mississippi has the potential to become one heck of a slip n slide when she gives.

If time has proven anything, its that the inevitable will inevitably happen.......often.....

Shame I didn't feel it here.

It would of gave me an excuse to get the child in bed.

Bah

Just saw this...is that normal for yall? I mean, that size? Hope nothing was damaged.

Yes i felt it too. I'm north of Youngstown. My whole room shook.

Only 2 miles deep..Yikes
, if I'm reading that correctly..Hope all is well..Very very glad we couldn't feel that here in south Jersey! The last close call(Virginia), was enough to last a lifetime for me.

Reports around here near Buffalo N.Y say some felt it. As usual I was in the car yet again driving and felt nothing!!! So far in the last few years I am 4 for 4 on that statistic!!!

I was outside around that time and didnt feel a thing.
I'm located about 45 minutes southeast of youngstown right now.



Hmmm....

Sounds like a product from fracking in my opinon. The Oklahoma quakes were thought to be from fracking as well.

I'm sure some people are gonna say it's 2012 starting.

Yes , I live across the border in PA and felt it while I was in the
basement. No damage . It just shook my Luxo Lamp a bit.
Does this mean that I'm no longer an E.Q. Virgin?

I went to find the shake map since we're all discussing where it was felt. Here is the USGS map of where the effect should have been noticable and to what extent. Hope this helps a bit:

Looks like enough to get attention in that area of Ohio, anyway.

Happy New Year!

Earthquake stats from the USGS.

We felt it here too. We are at 41N 80W. Basically the sucker was right under us.

It shook everything for approximately 5-8 seconds. Mild surprise, was not sure what it was at first.

We looked on USGS and saw confirmation. Was going to start a thread but I got scooped by this one, as I checked the firehose and saw this thread. Good reporting, SnF for the effort, as I was pulling info from the USGS.

It's now been reviewed by a seismologist, and it's being reported as six miles deep. (10 km).

Puterman, where are you? Got any comments on this?

we're making threads about 4.0 earthquakes now ?

This is an odd one:


Magnitude 4.0
Date-Time Saturday, December 31, 2011 at 20:04:58 UTC
Saturday, December 31, 2011 at 03:04:58 PM at epicenter
Time of Earthquake in other Time Zones

Location 41.159°N, 80.729°W
Depth 2.2 km (1.4 miles) (poorly constrained)
Region YOUNGSTOWN-WARREN URBAN AREA, OHIO
Distances 9 km (5 miles) NW of Youngstown, Ohio
11 km (6 miles) SE of Warren, Ohio
89 km (55 miles) ESE of Cleveland, Ohio
234 km (145 miles) NE of COLUMBUS, Ohio

Location Uncertainty horizontal +/- 10.3 km (6.4 miles); depth +/- 10.2 km (6.3 miles)
Parameters NST=108, Nph=125, Dmin=65.7 km, Rmss=1.02 sec, Gp= 50°,
M-type="Nuttli" surface wave magnitude (mbLg), Version=5
Source Magnitude: USGS NEIC (WDCS-D)
Location: USGS NEIC (WDCS-D)

Event ID usc0007f7s


source


Note that the depth is 'poorly constrained'....so even though it is version #5, we may see that change still.

This is definintely a large one for the area. I'm sure someone with more energy/time will get on here soon with a historical search to let us know just exactly how often these occur here. I am going to guess less than a couple of times a year, if that. I do not recall ever seeing one this large in Ohio during my time of observation. (doesn't mean I'm right though!!!
)

Of course, the immediate thought is of the New Madrid. Is there a connection between this quake and the the recent (on-going) swarms at the other end??? Are we finally seeing the release of energy migrating up this fault to the North? Now what? Where it will go next? Has there been enough of a release, or is this only a fore-telling of what might be coming? I just don't think anything can be said in absolutes anymore. If you live in the area, be prepared at least.

As to fracking; I am a firm believer that it causes quakes. Having said that, this is too large to have been caused by fracking alone (IMO) meaning that I believe that there would have to be a fault involved. Doesn't mean fracking didn't help lube said fault up...but that type of energy has other things going on too, I think.

Sure we are. Earthquakes are kinda rare around here. Plus, we are doing all sorts of fracking in this area, and many of us wonder what it's doing to the earth. Longterm geological effects, yanno, but the politicians are saying 300,000 jobs, and it's drill baby drill.

Are those two events related?

Hey, WC, thanks for visiting. Can you get Puterman to review this info?

What's your opinion?

ETA: Ok, read your post. Keep us posted with more info, K?
edit on 12/31/11 by Druid42 because: added ETA.
