After posting on the "rumbling noises around the world" thread, I thought I should ask you if you ever heard about earthquakes caused by flooding.
The situation: Slobozia Conachi, village in E Romania, is witnessing weird noises coming from the ground, and also shaking. It appears to have started
this week. And 2 weeks ago the same area was affected by heavy flooding. In fact, here's my post from said thread:
Not a personal report, but definitely belongs here.
Eastern Romania - Slobozia Conachi village. This week people started hearing weird noises coming from the ground, seasoned with earth shaking up to 7
times a day. "It's like the ground is boiling, we can hear such loud booms it makes our food jump on the table. We need someone to come tell us what
this means, we're afraid our houses will collapse on us and we're so frightened we can't sleep" one woman said.

Worth mentioning that 2 weeks ago the same area suffered extensive flooding. So it could be an effect of all that water (?).
The "shakings" are actually recorded as earhquakes, with the latest (3.9) happening there just a couple of hours ago. Here's the "last 10 seism" list

Stay safe everyone!
So is it really possible for the water to have caused 7 earthquakes (ranging from 2.7 to 3.9) in the last 4 days?
And what's that rumbling people report? Can flood-related land slides occur 2 weeks after the flooding? Is that the sound of the underground moving
somehow? It is my personal belief those people have not seen the worst of it yet, but let's not talk about that for now.
To top it all, the same part of Romania that was flooded 2 weeks ago (thus including this "rumbling&shaking" village I mentioned) is going to get
pounded hard again, with rains expecting to add up to +80 litres/sqm in just 2 days.
