Question - in the 1811 quake were there reports of mass bird die-offs before the quake?

Caldera Volcano in Arkansas

Anything is possible.
Keep in mind the 7 million MRE's and the thousands of coffins.
Also remember all the gas/oil pipelines running right thru the area to everywhere.
Smells coming from leaking pipes? Yes, as there are many of them, possibly breaking from stress.
Bridges needing repair? Yes, earth movement causes damage to bridges.

Volcano and/or Earthquake...this would be extremely bad.
Can you even imagine what this would do?

The end of the US for sure.
Total social and economic colllapse.
Martial law and UN troops.

When I was growing up in NW Indiana, finding a spring with "rotten egg" smell was wonderful-meant there was "healing" in it. People sought out the water to drink.

Our Missouri well has a rotten egg smell at times, and we find softening the water stops it.

The gas company stores extra fuel in salt domes-I doubt they would do that if there was a chance of disintegration under normal circumstances.

In my mind, the big problem is too much information. We are bombarded with it. No chance to relax and think. Every report is examined. BTW I searched-no sulfur smell in local news in NMFZ.

For all the fuss over New Madrid, how many of the same people educate themselves about:
basic first aid
how to manage when the power goes out
how to read the sky for impending storms.

While I live very close to NMFZ, the disasters that have nearly taken us out were tornadoes.

No one can predict an earthquake with any reliability. My dogs and chickens don't react to them.

Best to save concern for war, gang activity, drunk drivers and storms.

Well said.

I came across this vid a while back, and after learning that a "sulfur-like" smell was being detected around the NMF from your op, I immediately remembered it.

From the video's description:

Predicting The New Madrid Earthquake:
Signs to watch:
1. Animal behavior: Are your pets suddenly disturbed or anxious? Are they missing completely?
2. Electromagnetic sensing equipment: Not normally associated with earthquake predictions can be used by your local power/utility company.
3. Putrid smells, like rotten eggs: Smells that are emitted when rock formations are pulled apart.
4. Massive Bird and fish die offs: Caused as methane is released from the disruption in the crust, other possibilities include H.A.A.R.P. and Chemtrail poisonings.
5. Colorful rainbow type clouds: These are being seen minutes before earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. Theories suggest H.A.A.R.P. and Chemtrails or Electromagnetic discharges from bedrock.
6. Observing the dates nearby orbiting celestial bodies: The increase in gravitational pull from the alignment and distance and mass of the moon, sun, other planets, new comets like ELENIN or Planet X(brown dwarf star) will have a huge impact.

Hi everyone. I've been visiting ATS for some time as a visitor. This topic prompted me to become a member so I could post what happened the other day. My husband called me to come outside. When I went out he asked me if I could smell gas. I could definitely smell something, kinda like rotten eggs. This was last week. We live right on the New Madrid fault in Western Kentucky. My neighbor even called the gas company and they came out. They found nothing wrong. We're having minor quakes fairly often, but I'm told that is normal. I'm really worried though. I'm not sure what sulfur smells like, but I know it wasn't garbage or anything dead.

Doesn't propane smell like sulfur? I live in New-Brunswick and last week around 5:30am I went outside to take a leak and there was a very distinct and quite strong smell outside that smelled like propane. There's no farm or anything within at least 40 miles from where I live. There's one gas station with a propane tank about 1 1/2 mile from here but there wasn't any problem with it otherwise I would of heard about it. I live in a very small and EXTREMELY talkative village... You can't fart without the people at the other end of it knows within seconds...

I went to recheck a couple times an it was still smelling the same till 7ish...

When we had our propane explosion here, I didn't smell sulfur. But, you best hope you never have to smell propane. OMG will that make you sick for days. It was extremely foul smelling that lasted for hours. That's all I know. That was the one day I quit smoking.

Eh, well I guess I just have to worry about going kaboom and not a giant earthquake no more

Sorry nay sayers! I spent HOURS last year reading through the 1811-1812 newspaper accounts of the New Madrid quakes. And there were three separate accounts of volcanoes! Two of them they even gave the general areas.

One was up river near a certain Indian village. If you did some research, or were familiar with the area, I'm sure you could narrow it down.

Another account said someone had traveled three nights & days on foot to get where they were going, & had been able to travel at night by the light of the fire from the volcano! That must have been one huge _ _ _ volcano to give off enough light to travel by it for three nights!!!

There were accounts of huge fissures opening up & black 'rocks' being spewed out. Lava rocks?

Also the sky became dark as night & had an 'acrid' smell to it. I think that was the word they used. And it became hard to breathe.
Never heard of earthquakes causing darkness!

There was a lot more. Read them, they are really interesting!!!
Just because no one is still alive that saw them, doesn't mean that they don't exist!
Being informed is being prepared! Or what's the other saying? Forewarned is forearmed!

This is just a hunch but maybe it will happen on 3/22? It's the number of Skull and Bones and we know TPTB are obsessed with numerology and making sure historic events happen on certain numerical dates. The date is in close enough proximity to the sulfur smells and it provides a motive behind the recent resignations (they know what's going to happen and needed time to prepare).

I really dislike comments that say the Great Lakes will flow into the Gulf of Mexico because they create fear for those who live in these areas of the NMSZ. Especially since if any of these predictions are true, no bug out bag or amount of preparing (with the exception of relocation) will save the locals from the MS Valley and sea floor dropping and the ocean engulfing the area. I do believe the NMSZ will erupt again and could cause major changes in the topography as all scientific evidence points to it, but not to the level of bisecting America.

Also, can someone please help me understand how California is related to the NMSZ? Or why California will supposedly sink into the sea? My understanding is that the Pacific Cascadia fault line erupts vertically not horizontally and will not break off and sink into the sea. Even if a large tsunami is created (which I do believe will happen in the event of a mega thrust earthquake on this fault line), the land mass will still remain even despite a large amount of devastation. During the Japan and Indonesia tsunamis, the land did not sink into the sea…. How is this possible? Has this ever happened in history anywhere else?

And as far as the dream predictions go.. they are just dreams. I do not understand why so many people think they have to mean something or are precursors to some future event as if they can see into the future. I have had weird dreams as well, but chalk most of them up to my minds imagination. Shoot, I have been flying for years in my dreams but am in no way going to think that at some point I will have this capability. Perhaps some are on forums like these a little too much before they fall asleep at night! Just saying...

Just because you have never had a bout of precognition through a dream (presumably by the tone of your post), doesn't mean it does not occur. Not every person dreams the same, such as with the flying dreams you mentioned. But that is beside the point. If you do your homework, you will see the many people posted dreams about 9/11 happening before it did. Many people have been having these odd/dreams visions with very similar particulars and details. Again, just do a very basic search. For that reason and that reason alone, I find it pertinent to share that sort of information with others. Perhaps someone reading this thread may have had the same or similar dream or vision but did not want to share the information for fear of ridicule. I think it is low to mock people for sharing in an honest way. If you do not want to give it any consideration, fine, but I think that anything honest that is added to a discussion is not only acceptable, but vital, in order to keep the integrity of a thread up. Furthermore, considering that this happens quite often and sometimes seemingly-prophetic dreams happen on a global scale (acting as a leak in the global subconscious), I think it's important to see if there are people having such occurences.

I am somewhat astonished no one here has picked up on the bigger problem of if the NMFZ breaks. The Eastern Power Grid (the largest of the three grids by population and area served) CROSSES the NMFZ and the Mississippi river. Should the fault give way in a manner similar to the 1812 earthquake, then a third of the US will be without power for several weeks at best, months most likely. The failure of the Eastern Grid could cause the Western Grid to fail. The Texas Grid would most likely survive.

The results would cause the immediate loss of life due to the quake to pale in comparison. It would be a nightmare truly. Let's all hope this is just over hyped embellishment; I do watch the earthquakes in OK now though. The 5.1 in OKC a few weeks ago most definitely caught my attention!

The theory that the sulphur smell is coming from the earth changes has some merit. Anecdotal evidence, however, does not an active fault line make.

The sulphur smell could be coming from other places. For example, I was in Oklahoma last week on holiday, and I smelled sulphur from my hotel room. Stepping outside to pinpoint the odor, my nose found a beater car that smelled like rotten eggs. I had found a crackhead's car. Something was coming up and it was not hot lava. After vomiting from the smell, which was strong enough to peel paint from the walls, I found a better place to rest that night. The odor in the area could be signs pointing to meth season, when all the crackheads come out of their houses because of better weather.

So for the timing of the post, call me a skeptic of the volcano theory to exlpain the odd smells.

We have a town in Oklahoma called sulfur springs, named for the water springs that always smell of sulfur. The town is by the arbuckle mountains.
I hate that smell when we pass through.

OMG, okay,

you got that skull and bones 3 22

Then you got that video about 3 22

Maybe there something more to this.

Creepy...That's all I got to say.

And all the big wigs resigning. coincidence?

i lived in arkansas years ago and there were parts that always smelled bad. it was from the paper mills.

i don't remember exactly what it smelled like... if it was sulfur-like or if it was just a regular old stench. i just remember it was NOT pleasant.

Blech parts of Louisiana smell of paper mills and it is not like sulfur, I believe sulfur smells like a just lit match, paper mills smell like poop!!!

Thank you MountainGirl. And to the disbelievers of me or anyone else who tells of visions, I understand, and then the message is not for you. Leave what you do not need behind. It can be a bit tormenting knowing you are not what is considered the "norm" and fearing to tell what you have seen, or heard-because of redicule. I did not know this was "not normal" until I was about 10 years old. It is a story in itself. I actually came to this site hoping to see the possibility of others experiencing similar things. I chose to tell this vision to ATS, after holding it in for so long, because I feel it is time. And I bucked up preparing for redicule. Sometime it makes life easier for others to redicule, because "they" feel "they" will shame me into a form of submission, and it allows "these people" to feel superior for publically rediculing another.
As far as the volcanoes go-yes there are dormant volcanoes in Arkansas-it is easy to research this. They are not extinct. As I have stated in another thread-the way there is a Hot Springs, AR with hot springs bubbling up is a dormant volcano, it left a large opening where it rained down into for 1000 years(I think or more than 100). It is not extinct, it is sleeping/dormant. There too is a volcano is Texas, this one is only viable for a reappearance is there is the super-volcanic effect in play.
And to the poster who said something about a car and sulfur smells and then meth-when a catalytic converter goes out on older model cars, it smells like rotten eggs.

Guess I wasn't the first one to think of it... if you watch that on youtube and click around on the 'related videos' there are a ton predicting a quake on 3/22...

In that vid it said the smells came AFTER the earthquakes due to the cracks it created. I don't know, never really researched that much into quakes.

This lady says she can predict quakes from the sulfur smell
