  1. A bit of old History

    March 27, 1964: The Good Friday Alaska Earthquake and Tsunamis
    Damage was noted as far away as Louisiana, where waves swamped and sunk several fishing boats.
    And in East Tennessee they had foot to two foot wave at Norris Dam and in Oak Ridge TN the earthquake recorder were knock offline.

    Louisiana Earthquake History
    On November 19, 1958, a local earthquake in the Baton Rouge area shook houses and rattled windows. Scores of residents telephoned the Weather Bureau, Civil Defense, police and radio stations. The shock was also felt at Baker and Denham.

        Napoleonville from Walter’s link. For Sinkhole Bugle but went to spam:
        An earthquake centered about 60 miles west of New Orleans awakened many people throughout eastern Louisiana at about 6:17 a.m. on October 19, 1930. Maximum intensity reached VI at Napoleonville, where the entire congregation rushed from a church, as the entire building rocked noticeably. Intensity V effects were noticed at Allemands, Donaldsonville, Franklin, Morgan City, and White Castle, where small objects overturned, trees and bushes were shaken, and plaster cracked. The total felt area was estimated at 15,000 square miles, based on a detailed questionnaire canvass of the region surrounding the epicenter. The historical files of Prof. Harry Fielding Reid, Johns Hopkins University, were searched in order to find data on earlier shocks in the area. Slight tremors were listed on February 14, and 15, 1843, and April 1882. There also was a slight earthquake on the Mississippi Delta at Burrwood on December 15, 1927.

  2. Those were great finds. They still are targeting salt domes for rad waste. Saw this FYI:
    Three more tendons sink at Chevron’s Big Foot site in U.S. Gulf

    June 6 (Reuters) – Three more tendons designed to link Chevron Corp’s Big Foot deepwater oil project to the Gulf of Mexico seabed have sunk, escalating concerns about how long it will take for the project to start.

  4. 2015 ones again Thousands of tourists flock to Tennessee as dazzling fireflies light up the night sky.
    The phenomenon occurs for only two weeks in the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee.

    synchrony lightning bug inside the Great Smoky Mountain National Park near Elkmont, Tennessee. These bugs “start up” in mid June at 10 pm nightly. They exhibit 6 seconds of total darkness; then in perfect synchrony, thousands light up 6 rapid times in a 3 second period before all going dark for 6 more seconds.

    6/06/2015 — Arizona Volcanic Plume COVERUP — Main Stream Media + National Park Service RESPOND

    After all those earthquakes off the west coast of Oregon there was a lot of manmade earthquake from mine blasting from Oregon down.
    Were they taking pressure off the San Andreas Fault line.
