I think the bigger jump on the monitors is on the SE corner of Lake FUBAR next to the incredible amount of butane.

Oddity – 1 a.m. seems to be prime time for Lake FUBAR to turn into an underwater disco. Check out previous headlines here with “1 a.m. ” in the title!
8:30 p.m. Sat. eve –
6.0 quake out in the Atlantic – between Jamaica and Africa < MAP. It showed up as fluid movement at 8:45 p.m. at Lake FUBAR – seen on LA18 helicorder.
The 6.0 figure comes from USGS but RSOE says it was 6.6 plus there were 2 big ones next to it. All late Sat. at 10:28 except the 5.7 was at 8:28. If they all went off at 28 min. after the hour … were they man-made/oil drilling?
Reports – 6.6, 5.7, 5.6

Scientists discover why the Appalachian mountain chain bends
If you took a bird’s-eye view of the Appalachian mountain chain, you could pretty much trace a 1,500-mile straight line from Newfoundland to Alabama, notes Nature World News.
Except, that is, for a little squiggle in New York and Pennsylvania. So what on earth could make a mountain chain bend like that? Geologists think they’ve figured out the answer, and it’s not so much “on earth” as “in earth”—namely, an underground volcanic rock about 60 miles by 280 miles in dimension. . . .
Vermilion Parish – Instead of DEQ fines, plant sees tax breaks after explosion
Multi-Chem, a Halliburton-owned business that blends chemicals for oilfield production, including fracking, paid no state environmental fines when its New Iberia plant exploded in 2011.
Instead, the company received an expedited environmental permit to build a new plant in Vermilion Parish without public notice or a public hearing and was granted $1.8 million in state property tax exemptions over a 10-year period to build the new plant. . . .
. . . . DEQ scheduled a public hearing for 6 p.m. Aug. 14 at the North Vermilion High School cafeteria, 11609 La. Highway 699, Maurice.
