Wow we hardly ever have earthquakes. Things are getting a little too active for my liking.




Residents in Shelby County and Nacogdoches County got a shaking surprise Thursday morning when a 3.7 earthquake hit southwest of Timpson. The US Geological Society reports the earthquake hit around 10:15 a.m.

FissionSurplus from Texas posted a couple of days ago that her husband was a human earthquake detector....she predicted there would be a quake in the next couple of days.

Looks like she was right!

No I'm about 100 miles away from the area. So I didn't feel it, but some of my friends, who live in the area did. (according to their facebook)

I read that article. A little weird but earthquakes do happen regularly around the world. If he would have said Texas, an area not know for seismic activity, then it would've have been much more valid. Also he said a big earth quake; 3.7 isn't very big.

Weren't the people that posted the Human Seismograph thread the other day from Texas?


Not a very big one at all, but it's weird!

last year there were a couple western Tx quakes attributed to fracking,..perhaps this year they are fracking more in the east..

That thread was titled: "The Human Seismograph Says: Big Earthquake Eminent"

A 3.7 is not a big earthquake by any standard. A "Big" earthquake is at least a 7, which would be over 1,000 times as powerful as this tiny rumble..

BTW, there are many hundreds of under 4 quakes per day. Its not that shocking to predict one of that size will happen.

True....but I still found it an interesting coinkydink!

Theres about 2,740 earthquakes per day. Sometimes they occur in seemingly unlikely places. However just because an area is not historically earthquake prone, does not mean there are not some earthquakes in that area. And when one of those areas does have its once a year earthquake, or whatever, it does not carry any more significance than when a greatly earthquake prone area has its once an hour earthquake.

Predicting a 3.7 earthquake somewhere is like predicting the sun will rise tomorrow. Its a sure bet.

But a 3.7 was not predicted. Nor was the location specified. A "Big" earthquake was predicted, somewhere in the world. Perhaps that will in fact happen. However a 3.7 is a curiosity at best. In a week, 99%+ of people will have forgotten it ever happened.

I'm thinking that this quake is not the one indicated by Fissionsurplus' husband's butt, she did say that he was thinking of a larger quake and this does not fall in to the category or large by any stretch.

That being said, this area is extraordinarily unlikely to have quakes of any size. In fact looking at the historic seismicity since 1900 shows this being thre only quake ever recorded in the area: (duh, "mag 7 or over, I feel stupid now)



Quite likely related to petroleum extraction (be it conventional drilling or fracking) as noted by the image below:



The red circled areas (of which I only circled a few, there are MANY more in the image) are most likely oil/gas wells, many more are in the image and the epicenter of the quake can be seen by scrolling to the right.

I live in Lufkin, about 25 miles from Nacogdoches. I didn't feel anything. I'm not saying it didn't happen, I'm just saying that I didn't feel it.

first off Fission is IN TEXAS so i dunno.... i'm in texas and we don't get quakes. sure is weird she said there'd be a quake. his usual predictions are for big quakes but they are far away. this one was VERY CLOSE so it makes sense to me.

i think i felt it. i was on my sofa about to fall asleep at that time and i heard a rumble and i felt a vibration. i thought maybe there was a storm about to hit but nothing happened other than some drizzle.

Ok...I am officially spooked. This guy in this thread predicted this earthquake two days ago:

There was also another close by. 3.9 10km Wnw Of Prague, Oklahoma - 2012-05-10 14:14:31 - 35.538°N 96.782°W - 6.8 depth. I doubt that this is the earthquake that fission "predicted".

But but but bbbbbbbut

I thought people couldn't predict EQs???
I know cuz I was told so by the mental giants here on ATS.
I wonder how they will explain this one away?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

and on a completely different note,

run for the hills!!!!!!!
I hope everyone is alright!!!

Ohhhh the humanity!!!
I wonder how much carnage this caused.
Orrr, why it is that EVERY SINGLE GOD DAMNED EQ gets its own thread!!!!

I know that a 3.7 quake is a (big deal) to you all in Texas....and I understand...but try not to be worried....I live in Seattle and we had a 6.8 quake in 2001. I live in an apartment building that was built in 1917....in 1995 thankfully it was retro-fitted....and we got through the 6.8 quake just fine. Cheer up Texas..you are going to be ok!
