Seismic Activity at Lake FUBAR

Here is the view from Quake Watch on LA18



It is even more dramatic when you realize LA18’s helicorder is set on tiny settings. heli_button

Lake FUBAR Booms Night and Day

Like the beat beat beat of the tom-tom
When the jungle shadows fall
Like the tick tick tock of the stately clock
As it stands against the wall . . .

[LA 17-01 on Sunday – renamed “Hell 3″…. Hell is the word for it!]

  • Since spring sprung these giant booms, self-generating quakes and fuzz attacks have been constant at Lake FUBAR.
  • Texas Brine claims it is all settling down but the DOT is making detour plans for Highway 70.
  • DNR is quiet as a mouse.

Like the drip drip drip of the raindrops
When the summer shower is through . . .

A big storm is entering the Gulf –

4 weather alerts

Tropical Storm CARLOS Public Advisory < updates


Texas gets a coastal warning – NOAA Advisory

STORM SURGE:  The combination of a storm surge and the tide will
cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by rising
waters.  The water could reach the following heights above ground if
the peak surge occurs at the time of high tide...

Upper Texas coast...2 to 4 feet
Western Louisiana coast...1 to 2 feet

The deepest water will occur along the immediate coast near and to
the right of the landfall location.  Surge-related flooding depends
on the relative timing of the surge and the tidal cycle, and can
vary greatly over short distances.
