2/28/2015 — New Madrid earthquake — 3.0 magnitude shakes normally quiet area

A 3.0 magnitude earthquake has struck the New Madrid Seismic Zone (NMSZ) located in Southern Missouri.

new madrid 3.0M earthquake feb 28 2015

 

Any movement over a 1.0M-2.0M in this region should be made note of.  Especially at a time where we are seeing excessive seismic movement elsewhere nearby.

It is troubling for us to see movement in this region, being that I live in St. Louis Missouri, just due North of the major NMSZ strike zone.

I am not surprised to see movement occur at this point.

Over the past 24-48 hours (up to 5pm CST February 28, 2015) we have seen multiple earthquakes strike Dallas Texas, Alabama, Oklahoma, and along the East coast (Virginia, New York, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina).

This indicates major pressure on the edge of the craton, being revealed by earthquakes all along the Southern , Eastern, and Western portions of the plate.

The New Madrid Seismic Zone is an area which had the greatest magnitude earthquakes in the continental United States History.

In the winter months of December 1811, into January – February 1812… a series of large 7.0 – 8.0 magnitude earthquakes.

The location shown in dark red (via this USGS chart) shows the area in question, with the % of risk for another large earthquake over the next 50 years (as of 2009).

The movement seen in the South United states FOLLOWS a “hidden” 6.0 magnitude earthquake which struck off the shores of Puerto Rico yesterday, February 27 2015.

2/27/2015 — Rare Alabama 3.1M earthquake near fracking operation — USGS hiding / censoring earthquakes!

Today is a very strange day when it comes to seismic activity.

First, a 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck the far West Pacific..

sumatra feb 27 2015


Less than an hour after the 7.0M in the West Pacific, we saw a 6.0 magnitude earthquake strike near Puerto Rico.  The USGS quickly removed the event, and made no mention of it afterwards!

usgs hiding earthquakes feb 27 2015


Approximately 1 hour after the 6.0M near Puerto Rico, a 2.3 magnitude earthquake struck the East coast in Pennsylvania.

The USGS decided to NOT report the event at all, on any of their feeds.  I wonder why?

Very strange to see data censorship on this scale, all during a time of heavy global unrest.  This is a time where we need to be prepared, and aware, not censored (being kept in ignorance).

After the East coast movement, we saw ANOTHER earthquake strike Dallas Texas near the fracking operation which swarmed last month.

The Texas Railroad Commission (who manage the wells in the state of Texas), actually still actively deny that fracking causes earthquakes.

The location of the earthquake in Dallas is directly by an old injection well.

3.1m earthquake texas dallas feb 27 2015


Following all this other activity, we have now seen a 3.1 magnitude earthquake strike Central Alabama, which is located due East  of Dallas Texas, along the edge of the craton.

3.1 alabama earthquake feb 27 2015

This 3.1M event appears to have occurred at what could possibly be a newly developed fracking operation.

Upon close review of the area, there is a truck and earth mover back in the woods nearby this epicenter in what appears to be a pre-planted forest from an old mining operation.  We see these kinds of pickup trucks with yellow earth moving equipment in multiple fracking locations — usually doing preparations for the flat pads which must be present for the drilling rigs to come in to drill vertically.
