Post New Madrid
I hope we do not need this thread as a news thread, but I stumbled on an interesting thread at ATS which points out some comparisons between the 1811 major quakes on the New Madrid Fault and upcoming events in October of this year. I'll just post a few highlights, but if this interests you, the whole post can be found at the link at the end.

New Madrid Fault and interesting research in the similar events of 1811 to 2011 preceeding the major (quake).

What I am doing (in this post) is showing a ... comparison of ... the 1811-1812 (events) to the 200th year anniversary of the great quake... this year going into 2011-2012. It goes as follows.

...thinking of all the flooding lately, and the recent problem in Minot and the Missouri River that will lead into the Mississippi. Plus recent rains that have swollen rivers that flow into the Mississippi River. So I looked at the area where those rivers meet, and (it) was ... in the general area of the New Madrid Fault. ..... Would or could all that extra water cause compaction or compression on the soil adding extra pressure to the fault line?... sort of like a sponge that becomes heavier once you add a bunch of water to it.

So I did some researching and found this:

Quote:
Heavy rain can trigger earthquakes
13:44 25 February 2008 by Catherine Brahic

"Huge downpours of rain can trigger earthquakes in landscapes riddled with caves and channels by increasing pressure within underlying rock, suggests a new study. (rest of article redacted - can be read at link below)


snip

According to past historical records, there were in 1811, record amounts of rainfall and flooding in the same areas as this year and in about the same time, the month of June. Read below:

Quote:
The Great Floods of St Louis ... . It
was in the summer preceding the " shakes," as the
earthquakes were called. "

"The flood of 1811 was much greater than any that
followed until 1823,"


snip

just 3-4 weeks ago, an article came out (stating) that scientists were baffled at how quiet the sun was when it should be in a very active period, also, at the harsh winter Europe had just (experienced).

The poster quotes an article referring to similar conditions in the 1811 - 1813 period:

Quote:
"The most recent major cooling in Europe early in the 19th century, during the three weakest, prolonged (12 or 13 long) cycles of solar activity (1798-1883). This cooling occurred during the weakest, 13-year cycle of sunspots, from 1811 till 1823, during the absolute centennial minimum since 1700.


an interesting aside:
Quote:
1811 was the 11th session of congress and 2011 was the start of the 111th session of congress.


snip

In 1811, there is what was know as the Great Comet of 1811. It was discovered in March and was seen with the naked eye for 260 days. And it was at its brightest, yep you guessed it, mid-October.

Link to comet info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C/1811_F1

The poster then summarizes the comparisons/equalities existing between conditions in 1811 in the New Madrid area and those existing 200 years later, in 2011.

Quote:
1) Some type of great flooding or long period of heavy rainfall leading to large river levels rising occurred ,... in 1811 in the month of June, in the same places as in 2011
2) 1811 was the 11th session of Congress and 2011 started as the 111th session of Congress
3) ... the sun is going quiet, when it should be beginning its maximum period. ...1811 was a unique year for the sun for its quiet period. ...
4) Europe has just come off possibly the coldest winter in its history,...cooling of Europe in 1811, due to the suns activity.
5) In 1811, the new moon occurred on Dec 15th, the morning of Dec 16th, the earthquake struck. In 2011, we have a new moon on Oct 11th....
6) Most geologists and scientists believe that most earthquakes occur during new and full moons, with new moons the most likely. But when you have new and full moons on days that also equal their apogee or perigee, then you have a "supermoon", this is what some of them, Jim Berkland for example, believe is the most dangerous window for earthquakes.
7) ... in Oct. we have a full moon on the 11th, with the moon apogee on Oct 12th. We have a new moon on Oct 26th, but we also have the moon perigee on, yep, Oct 26th. Now, the JPL say that comet Elenin will make its closest approach on Oct 16th. Right in the middle of the full and new moon and the apogee and perigee, leading up to the 26th that is the new moon, perigee, and passing comet all on the same day. ...
8) There was what is known as The Great Comet of 1811. Its was seen with the naked eye for 260 days. It was first noticed on March 25th, 1811, and made its closest approach (estimated) but became its ...brightest in mid-October.
9) The date of the strongest and first New Madrid quake was on a 16th and the closest approach of this already famous comet no one has even seen yet is on a 16th. October 16th



The poster continues later in the thread by bringing up the major eruption that followed on the heels of the New Madrid quakes:

Quote:
In 1812, Mount Tambora became highly active, with its eruptive peak in the catastrophic explosive event of April 1815.


is history repeating itself? Is 2011 the start of what could of been what the start of 1811 might have been?

Quote:
Mount Rainier is a massive stratovolcano located 54 miles (87 km) southeast of Seattle, United States. It is the most prominent mountain in the contiguous United States and the Cascade Volcanic Arc, with a summit elevation of 14,411 feet (4,392 m).[1][2] Mt. Rainier is considered one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world, and it is on the Decade Volcano list

Great job, Rutsie! I'm glad you made this thread and I think these similarities are eerie, indeed.

 Re: New Madrid
I just posted an article linking the latest earthquake in the San Antonio region to fracking, so I googled fracking and the New Madrid fault zone. Here are a few excerpts from the results.

Quote:
Every day millions of gallons of oil are being extracted from beneath the Gulf and Mississippi basin, all the way to the heart of the New Madrid fault line through Arkansas on up into Illinois and Indiana.

Not only are oil and natural gas being extracted, but chemically enhanced water is being pumped INTO the rock strata to free up more oil and natural gas in a process called fracking.


A two part video, starts here:


There is a conspiracy theory post on ATS going into supposed efforts to destabilize the New Madrid fault zone. Whether you buy into the intent behind what is going on or not, there are some facts here that make me even more nervous about that region.

14 Warning Signs Of A Possible 9.2-9.6 New Madrid Earthquake Cluster Sequence In May
http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread698569/pg1

You get the idea. Much more available with some googling.

Post Re: New Madrid
I'm just posting this here as a sort of heads-up. Saw it on FB posted by Michael Janitch (Dutchsinse) It would be very interesting if his "hunch" comes true.

Quote:
Midwest possible earthquake threat --- watch possible movement in Arkansas, Missouri, Tennessee, Illinois, Kentucky.. possibly indiana and ohio.. just a gut feeling on this.. not going to make a video as I have nothing to back up my thoughts other than a lack of earthquake in the Missouri area since June... and the rest of the world has moved since then.. so this area MUST play catchup anytime now.. again.. midwest USA .. watch it just in case!

Nice find there Ruts.

I like monitoring personal hunches from folks who do so on their gut feel. More hits than misses imo, and Michale is no slouch!

:hmm

Post Re: New Madrid
In addition to the drilling and fracking in the region, Dutch talks about the severe flooding in the region last year. For those who haven't read up on it here is some info on the major EQ's in this region:

1811–1812 earthquake series
Main article: 1812 New Madrid earthquake

December 16, 1811, 0815 UTC (2:15 a.m.); (M ~7.2 – 8.2[9]) epicenter in northeast Arkansas; it caused only slight damage to man-made structures, mainly because of the sparse population in the epicentral area. The future location of Memphis, Tennessee was shaken at Mercalli level nine intensity. A seismic seiche propagated upriver and Little Prairie was destroyed by liquefaction.[10] Local uplifts of the ground and water waves moving upstream gave the illusion that the river was flowing upstream.[11]

At New Madrid, trees were knocked down and riverbanks collapsed. This event shook windows and furniture in Washington, D.C., rang bells in Richmond, Virginia, sloshed well water and shook houses in Charleston, South Carolina, and knocked plaster off of houses in Columbia, South Carolina. In Jefferson, Indiana, furniture moved and in Lebanon, Ohio, residents fled their homes. Observers in Herculaneum, Missouri, called it "severe" and claimed it had a duration of 10–12 minutes.[12]

Aftershocks were felt every six to ten minutes, a total of 27, in New Madrid until what was called the Daylight Shock, which was of the same intensity as the first. Many of these were also felt throughout the eastern US, though with less intensity than the initial earthquake.[13]

December 16, 1811, the Daylight Shock, 1415 UTC (8:15 a.m.); (M ~7.2 – 8.2) epicenter in northeast Arkansas; This shock followed the first earthquake by six hours and was similar in intensity.[9]

January 23, 1812, 1500 UTC (9 a.m.); (M ~7.0 – 8.0[9]) epicenter in the Missouri Bootheel. The meizoseismal area was characterized by general ground warping, ejections, fissuring, severe landslides, and caving of stream banks. Johnston and Schweig attributed this earthquake to a rupture on the New Madrid North Fault. This may have placed strain on the Reelfoot Fault.[10]

February 7, 1812, 0945 UTC (4:45 a.m.); (M ~7.4 – 8.6[9]) epicenter near New Madrid, Missouri. New Madrid was destroyed. At St. Louis, Missouri, many houses were severely damaged, and their chimneys were toppled. This shock was definitively attributed to the Reelfoot Fault by Johnston and Schweig. It was uplift along this reverse fault segment, in this event, that created waterfalls on the Mississippi River, disrupted the Mississippi River at Kentucky Bend, created a wave that propagated upstream and caused the formation of Reelfoot Lake.[10]

More than 4000 earthquake reports since 1974

The earthquakes were felt as far away as New York City and Boston, Massachusetts, where ground motion caused church bells to ring.[14]

Hundreds of aftershocks followed over a period of several years. Aftershocks strong enough to be felt occurred until the year 1817. The largest earthquakes to have occurred since then were on January 4, 1843, and October 31, 1895, with magnitude estimates of 6.0 and 6.6 respectively.

Post Re: New Madrid
Although this post is about volcano activity, I want to keep it here with other info on the New Madrid fault zone.

from Dutchsinse's site:
"supposed "dormant" volcanoes along the new madrid fault begin showing life. college of dupage website. 3/1/2012"



A first person report from Dutch's site along with video:



"I recorded a whole video on the plumes .. then as the video was processing .. a 2.9M earthquake struck the New Madrid Seismic Zone (TN and AR border).

The plume area in Arkansas is coming from near the dormant volcanic chain which includes Murfreesboro Diamond mine state park ... a dormant volcano where you can dig for diamonds.

Also in south-east Missouri -- there resides a dormant volcano -- not marked on any map.. but you can see the county (i have done this already myself) .. go look up that county on google earth .. and look for the ONLY standalone mountain in the area.. zoom in... and you will see it ... clearly an UNMARKED or UNKNOWN dormant volcano.. (for sure unnamed).

The whole event happened this afternoon (March 1, 2012) -- viewable on College of Dupage (or any other visible satellite of the midwest USA) ...


To view the event still live on satellite feed... select the 1km visible satellite view of Arkansas ... do this ASAP before its gone into archives...

Michael Janitch (Dutchsinse) had a lot of info on FB and on his blog today about the huge number of large quakes going on in the last few days, but also a major article and video on plumes and "fires" erupting in the US, which some think signals a possible large quake in the Midwest (US). Here are some excerpts from the main article he quotes.

Frightening Volcanic Venting Signals Coming Midwest Megaquake

A U.S. Midwest Megaquake: many say ‘It can’t happen here.’ But it can, and it will. It’s happened many times in the past and the odds are increasing that it’s about to happen again soon—much sooner than most people think. The last New Madrid Megaquake caused the Mississippi River to run backward, destroyed whole towns and villages in seconds, and killed an unknown number of people. And that was when most of the Midwest was sparsely populated. The next Megaquake would affect up to 160 million people, severely damage or destroy most of the supporting infrastructure, topple one or more major cities, potentially kill tens of thousands, and make a million or more homeless within a matter of mere minutes.

Now, ominous evidence points to an imminent Megaquake: volcanic venting, spewing acrid plumes miles high into the atmosphere, has been observed and photographed. Worse, the many ancient Midwestern volcanoes are re-activating—and farther west the grandaddy of Utah’s volcanoes is waking from its long, restless slumber…

The New Madrid fault is giving every indication of an approaching major slip and significant volcanic venting in three states is providing plenty of warning.

snip

Beyond the upsurge in magma and steam venting, disturbing evidence has emerged that indicates three long dormant volcanoes in the Midwest may be returning to life. And if volcanoes return to life—in what are now densely populated areas—their life could mean the death of many humans.

snip

The gigantic rivers of flowing magma are being pushed upwards at tremendous pressure from deep within the Earth. The river ebbs and flows winding its way three-dimensionally and crosses many Southern and Midwest states all the way out to Utah, New Mexico, and Arizona.

As the magama increases it places more and more pressure on the strata containing it. The magma cuts new channels and vastly increases the pressure on fault lines until they buckle and shift.

This isn't strictly along the New Madrid fault line, but pretty close...

Kentucky's 4.3 earthquake rattles widespread region

A 4.3-magnitude earthquake centered in southeastern Kentucky on Saturday has shaken residents from northern Ohio to North Carolina and Alabama.

The earthquake, centered more than half a mile underground about eight miles west of Whitesburg, Ky., did not appear to cause any structural damage in the Ohio Valley. The epicenter was about 35 miles west of the southwestern Virginia border.

More than 200 people from Ohio, Alabama, Pennsylvania, Georgia Indiana and North Carolina reported feeling the temblor on the U.S. Geological Survey’s website, some more than 300 miles away.

Earthquakes in Kentucky are not uncommon, mainly occurring along its western border, along the New Madrid fault zone that traces northeast from the Arkansas-Tennessee border along Missouri and up to Indiana. That region reported three earthquakes between 7.5 and 7.7 in 1811 and 1812, according to the USGS.

Following is a map of the New Madrid area. Note that it includes part of Oklahoma as an area that felt / would feel earthquakes in the red zone. There have been an increased number of earthquakes in Oklahoma this year, more in the first 3 months than in all of 2013. http://news.yahoo.com/series-small-eart ... wAIUvQtDMD
