Solar Storms and Earthquakes in Arkansas?

Can't sleep and gave up the ghost on trying as I can take a nap later today, so why not do some reading online....

A lot of interesting articles online concerning earthquakes along and near the New Madrid Fault Line that are worth reading.

Also worth noting is that in the last few hours Arkansas has had TWO ...4.0 quakes or stronger.

In fact, the world ticker on quakes is beginning to be taken up by the word ARKANSAS.

Keep watching:

I mean do we need to get 5.0 earthquakes before we have some serious discussion on this in the media?

Have heard bits and pieces about gas drilling in the region. What kind of drilling? I mean a few 2.0s okay...but 2 four point quakes is nothing to shake a excuse to.. it's getting serious and not just bored storm chasers and wannabee geologists are watching.

Some doomsday types have pointed out the linkage to the bird and fish kills... that's a stretch but worth keeping in mind.

Another source of contention is the major Solar Storms this week, the strongest in 20 years. Strong Solar activity seems to affect people's moods, migraines, earthquakes, volcanoes and it makes for really beautiful Northern Lights.
(this one blames the Mississippi River for depositing too much sediment... )

Shame we don't have the ghost of Tecumseh to ask if he sees anything in the near future happening...

I don't know... but I do know that this is more than a small swarm of 2.0 quakes and something is going on beneath the Earth's surface. If there is a link between space weather or earth weather... that remains to be seen.

But, it's worth watching and if I had a chance to stay up and watch the Northern Lights then trust me I would but the only light I was watching tonight was the Magical Moon Rise Over the City of Miami...

Ps that was a FULL Moon by the way and not sure if that makes a difference or not, just noting on it's beauty and fullness.

Things are definitely getting weird in our world...maybe I should say "weirder."

They said they were going to perform necropsies on those birds to try to determine what killed them...and they are doing the same on all of the dead baby dolphins that have washed up on the northern Gulf beaches.

I agree with you re the media's ignoring the quakes in was mentioned in passing when they reported on the quake off the Alabama coast last week. If they can't sensationalize something adequately, they just don't report on it.

Remember the guy who did all the posting on HC about electrics and weather impact? Maybe he was on to something.
