At the end of March, I noticed that there was a pattern emerging as new earthquakes in the Mediterranean region started happening. Here are the links to the past threads.

Thread 1

Thread 2

I also noticed that earthquakes were moving from east to west and from west to east in the US. They seemed to be moving to the New Madrid area. Today, there was a quake in what looks like TN. There was also a quake up in the northeast, which seems to be connected in the direction of the line of quakes coming from the West. Take a look at this picture.



Draw a line from quake to quake. It points toward the Northeastern quake that is shown on the map above.

After noticing the quakes in the Mediterranean, we had the 8th largest quake in the world out in the Indian ocean. Compare the pictures in the threads above to this picture of the last 7 days. Draw another line from quake to quake. The large quake happened in the Indian Ocean the same way.



Basically, I'm curious as to the result of what we are seeing in the Midwest. I live in SW Missouri. My family lives in SE Missouri, near the New Madrid fault. With the recent venting of dormant volcano tubes in the area, it seems that something is on the move East and West.

No predictions. On the surface, it appears that we are warming up to a big one.

One more. The Mediterranean quakes and the US quakes also form a line across the ocean. Maybe this is nothing, but it seems to share a common connection. I also find it fascinating that Africa is the only continent that is virtually free of activity.

Very interesting.....I guess we shall wait and see


I live in Memphis Tn, so I have a vested interest in anything New Madrid.

Thanks for the heads-up!!!

I'm sorry, but I don't quite get it.

First, anytime I see something 'claimed' such as the dormant volcanos 'venting' based soley on one of the Dutchensese guy videos....credibility goes down very, very fast. I believe what was seen in that video was explained as forrest fires. Please correct me if I am wrong, but try and do so with a credible news source.

As to the lines being formed by the quakes.....why, yes. It is actually very normal and expected as these quakes are following known faults and subuction zones.

One of them is known as the ring of fire....

If I am missing the bigger picture or message here please explain further. I'm not trying to be condescending or anything, it is just that with so much at stake and so many false messages out there about quakes, I think it important to clearly define what is in fact proven, and what is pure conjecture. I am one to come up with my own theories, trust me....but I just caution you to base anything videos off youtube or looking at quake maps without a bit of scientific background on what it is you are seeing.

Dutchsense video discredits any thread. Won't even waste my time watching them.


I'm amazed it appears like so many people still watch this guys videos when he is always wrong.

I could not imagine a crappier earthquake graphic than what was posted by the OP.

Whoever thought of that is probably on acid.

WC can correct me of I'm wrong, but I believe that Africa has the fewes amount of seismographs in the world other than perhaps Antarctica.

No monitors equal no ability to locate quakes.

Nothing wrong with conjecture, but you need some solid science behind it if you expect to be taken seriously. And stay away from Dutch.

The USGS is in Africa as much as any place that has faults from what I can see. Possibly the reason there are not as many monitors is because Africa doesn't have as many faults. My research seems to suggest this.

As for the science, it is empty apart from intuition. We have plenty of data so intuition is now needed. It doesn't take a scientist to make a future assumption from the data and trends. I would bet more on an observation made by someone paying attention than a scientist detracted by his job stress and handcuffed by the government. I will gladly use my intuition to see that the MSM will not be reporting our worst fears to us any time soon. It's pretty much going to be up to us to figure it out. There are some brilliant people on this site and my assumption that great minds can network the appropriate answer to the data.

there does seem to be a wide spread of activity; off Indonesia, Mexico, Oregon, New Brunswick, Asia, and volcano action in Mexico and Italy. might be more I'm not aware of.
what gets me is that Etna and Popocapetl are fuming at the same time. anyone compare their latitudes?

Has anyone found a good map of active/dormant volcanoes in the U.S? I only found this and it is not showing any volcanoes where the plumes were.

Looks like most of the stations are located along the coast, with the greatest majority of those being along thwe east coast. This makes sense as that is the location of the Afar Depression.

And it looks like Africa does indeed have more stations than Antarctica.



Shakemove Global - Princeton University's Near Real Time Global Seismicity Portal

There are large areas, mostly on the interior of the continent, that seem to not be covered by any network.

Scientists are generally specialists and can certainly be blinded by their specialties. A generalist can see connections that might elude such a specialist due to their narrow field of study. A generalist, however lacks the depth of knowledge needed to make those connections relevant in any given specialty. There is a balance that needs to be struck between the two and communication needs to take place in order for new achievements to be made.

Without the specialists, the generalist has nothing to connect so both are integral to the overall process of advancement.

Thanks for posting this, I look forward to looking into it more!

I cant believe how insulting some of the commentary is when you are introducing something new.
Dutchsinse rocks. so he might get things wrong or jump the gun now and then.... who doesn't.

Don't knock it until you try it.

Then again, the 8th largest quake happened shortly after I posted that last thread. The simple observation that quakes were moving in a line pointed straight to the big one. Call it a hunch, but the US is producing the same type of line toward the New Madrid fault. It doesn't take a scientist to see a trend. We're all blessed with quantum computers running our show. Misplaced concreteness is a fallacy we can all experience. It happens to the scientist and the layman alike.

Great post. I had been seeing a connection with the US quakes as well, wondering when and if the NM might go, since it seems pressure is building up on each side of the US. I live in CO and have been wondering if we're going to start seeing quakes again as well. I look at quake info quite a bit because all of my family lives in Illinois, so nearly daily I check things out. Well, I'm a bit of a dork, too
Anyway, I've been noticing that quakes have been appearing in odd spots, only odd to me because they are in places I don't usually see them in the past couple of years. For example, the one you menioned in W KY, near the IN border. It was last week, I believe, that southern Indiana had one somewhere in the 3 range, if I remember correctly. Also, if you look at the USGS site, it looks like quakes from the past week form a little zipper down the fault. Sure, not many, and not large, but the activity is there and activity out east and out west seems to be getting bigger, such as the one in the Atlantic.

What I noticed about the Iran & Iraqi quakes today, was that they weren't that far apart in time frame, and it seems like that is the case quite a bit with these oddly placed or larger quakes. Wasn't there a correlation between the Chilean quakes the other day and PNG?

After reading today about the quake swarms in New Brunswick, quakes in the 1 & 2 range doing serious shaking and making "explosion sounds" and "booming sounds", I wonder if all of the booms we've been hearing all over the place are connected to something shifting, which is causing quakes in these weird places. Just my opinion, as I experienced the CO quakes last year and the ensuing booms and exploding noises 2 weeks or so later that shook my house and neighborhood, but weren't quakes, according to the USGS.

Good post

Well, did it expire off the site yet? Not that I don't think they edit/censor/remove quakes, but sometimes they just fall off due to age.
