Posted on 10/11/2010 10:28:17 PM PDT by FromLori
Faulkner County residents had a shaky start to their Monday morning as a 4.0-magnitude earthquake rattled throughout the county.
The quake, which occurred at 8:33 a.m. and was centered two miles southeast of Guy, was just one of 48 earthquakes reported since Wednesday afternoon.
All but three of the earthquakes were recorded within three miles southeast or south-southeast of Guy. Wednesday afternoons quake and two quakes on Thursday were reported east-northeast of Guy.
According to Shelia Maxwell with the Faulkner County Office of Emergency Management, the U.S. Geological Survey is looking into the recent earthquake activity in the area.
Were having them (earthquakes) in places weve never had them before, Maxwell said. The USGS is looking into why were having them and why there have been so many.

Just hope you don’t get hit with a massive horizontal shift...it’s like crack the whip...There is no warning...It’s like ridding in the back of a pickup, when the driver just slams on the brakes, then punches it again.
Jog my memory: wasn’t the largest earthquake in North America a 10+ along the New Madrid fault in the 1830’s?
“... as long as we’re OK in the ‘burbs.”
What burb are you in? I’m in Downers Grove.
The winter of 1811-12, iirc
Phil Carson, (from "Enemies Foreign And Domestic"), and three strangers are hiding in a well-stocked cave, which is a guerrilla fighter's lair. Across the region Kazakh "contract peacekeepers" are wiping out the last remaining American holdouts, who have rejected the federal government's order to abandon their homes and move to "relocation centers."

SO much for the “Who, What, WHERE and When rule.”

I should have thought that New May-drid, huh?
You mean that the USGS hasn't answered this question in the last 198 years? Not long enough, since the last really big one?
Maybe if they didn't go running off all over the world every time there's an earthquake, they might have the time...
Maybe a 100 year cycle??
Not everything there involves the New Madrid fault.
Wow, brings back childhood memories. Born in Berwyn, lived in Lisle for several years.
Used to walk across the fields underneath the high tension power wires and reach the outskirts of Downers Grove, some strip mall shopping centers located on...Maple Drive? Too long to remember for sure.
That was while 8-9 years old, me and my buddy Jimmy West. Funny how times have changed, no way would kids that young be allowed to go that far alone today.
That fault line has minor quakes every now and then. It really isn't "waking up."
Quite often there would be a seismic event from New Madrid and all the ICBMs would go into Memory or PIGA Leveling mode. The crews on duty knew exactly what had happened because the missiles would report all at once.
where is “Faulkner County” and why is this important to anyone?
There have been quite a few earthquakes in Texas centered around drilling the Barnett Shale. Except, in Texas, they say, it has to do with the disposal wells not the gas wells
In seismology, coordinates have value.
