Lake FUBAR Rocks to Mexican Tune! Saturday Hat Dance All Over the World!

A 6.6M earthquake off Mexico’s Pacific side SHOOK UP Lake Fubar!

USGS quake report  LA-18
LA18_MexQuake2016THEN . . . 

Something big happened around 9 p.m. CST —

and it doesn’t match any quakes on the USGS list.





Walter noticed ALL the helicorders all over (not just Louisiana) are goin’ nuts.

Check this worldwide helicorder map and check ANY location now and compare to Friday or Thursday. You will see the familiar Mexico quake on the Americas’ helis. And then everything goes batsh-t crazy today!

We did some screen grabs from the world monitoring site.





We added 2 new links to the Seismic Monitoring section on the right sidebar (this map plus the frac quake page from VA Tech).

SUNDAY:  7.1 quake up in Alaska. We don’t know what this means for Lake FUBAR.

USGS Report –  see also update about that area on the Yellowstone blog.

Some Drinking Water News –

It’s not just Flint that’s poisoned mentions New Orleans

The drinking water in St. Joseph (Tensas Parish) is in very bad shape. There is awful brown water coming out of the taps. See photos here:

The city was appropriated $6m to fix its water system. But the town failed to provide an audit to the state government, which has blocked the funding from reaching the town.  This failure of leadership is hurting the community. The people need strong leadership to get the funding to fix the problem. Further, the city needs state and federal intervention.

Please sign the petition to get federal intervention here, and please forward this along to your members:

Thurs. News + Big Alaska Quake + Victory for Save Lake Peigneur


Crazy amounts of seismic activity and fluid movement continue at Lake FUBAR. Officials still mum.

Here is LA12 this morning:





The USGS is hiding the big Argentina quake yesterday. Now there is a big 6.2 quake up in Alaska. It is today, but the time in UTC seems all wrong. It is not yet 5 p.m. CST.

Wed. – Save Lake Peigneur wins its lawsuit  smile2  smile2  smile2

NEW IBERIA – Judge Keith Comeaux of the 16th Judicial District Court based in New Iberia reversed the decision of the Louisiana Department of Natural Resources (LDNR) to issue a Coastal Use Permit to Jefferson Island Storage & Hub for its proposal to construct and operate two natural gas storage caverns in the Jefferson Island Salt Dome under Lake Peigneur.
The court agreed with the plaintiffs that the LDNR should not have issued the permit without first finding out that the project would not unreasonably endanger public safety and that the location had foundation conditions sufficiently stable to support the use.

About Lake Peigneur

Further, the court ruled that the LDNR decision violated its Constitutional duty as public trustee of the environment under Article IX, section 1 of the Louisiana Constitution because it did not do an environmental impact analysis of the potential impacts of the project. . . .

Helicorders grmubling at 5 a.m. – It isn’t workers. July 10 story (we missed) from WAFB – has video. Oh, but they went back to Code 1. Still work doesn’t usually start til about 7 or 8 a.m. at Lake FUBAR.

UPDATE: At 6:49 a.m. CST there was a giant 6.0 quake up in Alaska. It may affect helicorders. At 7:12 LA14 had major fluid movement but not all the helicorders showing that. LA12 had the same starting a few minutes earlier. But LA12 was already grumpy before the Alaska quake.

The DNR hasn’t put out a subsidence report since January(!). Did they not bother to do one or are they just keeping it secret? And the last bubble site map was from May. It shows lots of sites north of LA70. What’s a “seismic shothole”??

Weekend News – Terrible Seismos Sunday – 7.9 quake Alaska


In spite of setting the helicorders to nearly unreadable micro-settings they still show larger seismic activity at Lake FUBAR.

After 2 a.m. Saturday this big burp at LA19


 SUNDAY     fluid

Very big, sustained fluid movement, shaking after midnight, after 2 a.m. and 4 a.m. Sunday morning. Also very visible on LA14 and other helicorders.

It is grumbling at 11 a.m. too.  heli_button

 Very large quakes went off below Patagonia overnight. 6.9 quake and 5.1  and another 5.1 very nearby at the same time. There was a 6.2 quake off Iwo Jima Japan too. General seismic mayhem worldwide.

(June 24) Colorado suspends oil and gas wastewater disposal well after quake

(Reuters) – Disposal of wastewater from oil and gas drilling into a Colorado well was ordered halted this week after seismic activity was detected in the area, state regulators said on Tuesday.

The Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission ordered High Sierra Water Services to stop disposing wastewater for 20 days into the well in Weld County after seismologists detected a small 2.6-magnitude temblor on Monday. That came after a 3.4-magnitude earthquake shook the area on May 31. . . .

Nature Runs Amok at Yellowstone < UPDATED

***  Other magma related stories here too  ***

ItemActivity after 1 p.m. at Yellowstone today.

History: “The volcanic eruptions, as well as the continuing geothermal activity, are a result of a great cove of magma located below the caldera’s surface. The magma in this cove contains gases that are kept dissolved only by the immense pressure that the magma is under. If the pressure is released to a sufficient degree by some geological shift, then some of the gases bubble out and cause the magma to expand. This can cause a runaway reaction. If the expansion results in further relief of pressure, for example, by blowing crust material off the top of the chamber, the result is a very big gas explosion.”

Yelowstone is an 8 on the  VEI Index:  “super-colossal” (if it blows).

. . . . Critical to note about Borah Peak Mountain and central Idaho, this report says, is that it is a part of what is called the Intermountain Seismic Belt (ISB) [photo map 1st right] which extends from Southern California and connects many of the Western United States regions, most particularly the Yellowstone Caldera, and is overdue for a catastrophic volcanic eruption event. . . .”

April 15 – Hundreds of earthquakes strike central Idaho, rattling nerves

(Reuters) – Hundreds of low-level and medium-sized earthquakes have struck central Idaho since last month, puzzling geologists who wonder whether the ruptures portend a much larger temblor to come or are merely the rumblings of a seismic fault previously thought to be dormant. . . .

Prepping for the ‘big one’: How bad could a Utah earthquake be?

” . . . At the University of Utah, seismologist Katherine Whidden said she doesn’t believe devastation in the Salt Lake Valley would approach the level it did in Haiti, but she also acknowledged it would be plenty bad.

“The problem we have here is that all the population is right on top of the fault,” Whidden said.

A 7.0-magnitude earthquake would likely create a 5- to 10-foot rift along the responsible fault line.

“The last major earthquake took place in 1877. Since then the plates have moved about 10 metres closer together,” says Tilmann. “The tension that’s built up can only be freed by a major quake.”
The most recent earthquake in early April did release some pressure, but wasn’t enough to relieve the entire segment.
