What the heck??  Heli_ANI

LA-11 shows the 2 big seismic events at 9 a.m. and after 11 a.m this morning. The each lasted over half an hour.





Two 3.7 quakes in Sun City, Kansas – [1], [2].


At 5:54 p.m. CST there was a big quake off the coast of Chile – 7.9M. 8.3 Report & MAP.

Then the helicorders came back on (sometime after 7:40 p.m. EST) showing bells ringing after this mega-quake in Chile.

On the Pacific side.

DETAILS … at 9:30 p.m. Thursday night CST

The WatchersVery strong and shallow M7.1 earthquake strikes southern East Pacific Rise < has a map

It may show at Lake FUBAR. There is lots of seismic activity in Central America and the Caribbean today. USGS list.

Message from a reader just sent in:

“Interesting about the Cushing quake. Cushing is THE hub of oil pipelines in US.” … that reminds us of this earlier post showing all the pipelines offshore from  Texas.

Strange Sounds asks, “Did you  experience rumbling noises and see strange blue light flashes in Mississippi on  August 17” ? Reply to them if you did.

NOTE: Lake Peigneur has begun bubbling again. News and photos about it added to the Thurs. post. [Scroll down]


At 6 A.M. Lake FUBAR shows huge activity on all the monitors. Is it from this shallow 6.0 California quake?

   Thanks to Walter for the tip – 😉

A half hour later the ANF map shows a 5.4 quake at the top of Canada in the NW Territory.
At 68.2358 N, -99.4608 W. But the USGS doesn’t have it.


NY TimesMethane Is Discovered Seeping From Seafloor Off East Coast, Scientists Say

Scientists have discovered methane gas bubbling from the seafloor in an unexpected place: off the East Coast of the United States where the continental shelf meets the deeper Atlantic Ocean.
The methane is emanating from at least 570 locations, called seeps, from near Cape Hatteras, N.C., to the Georges Bank southeast of Nantucket, Mass.  . . .

Oopsie! We accidentally deleted today’s news!  The problem was there was big news from the parish blog but we accidentally re-blogged it to the FC blog instead of here. So …  (oops!).

Walter had a great comment with a 2013 news item –  12 more salt caverns with thin walls discovered near La. sinkhole

In a recap – at 2 a.m. the helicorders showed big fluid movement … but there was a big Mexico quake at that time. Slosh, slosh. slosh.

Of interest – Chile may be on brink of mega earthquake

. . . and Now the BAD News —

WVUE – Reports of rumbling, shaking across Southwest Louisiana

By Michael Cooper

SOUTHWEST LOUISIANA (KPLC) – Starting around noon on Wednesday, KPLC began receiving reports about rumblings felt across Southwest Louisiana.

Viewers from DeRidder, Dry Creek, Elton, Gillis, Iowa, Kinder, Oberlin, Lacassine, LeBleu Settlement, Longville, Moss Bluff, Westlake, Oakdale, Pitkin, Ragley and Reeves said they felt their houses shake, windows rattle or heard loud booms. Some also said the same thing happened on Monday.

Kamreon Moreau, of Oberlin, said her house began shaking around 11:50 a.m. and that it lasted only a few seconds.

The United States Geological Survey has no record of an earthquake in Louisiana today but the USGS sensors don’t usually detect earthquakes under 2.5 magnitude.

Big Fluid Movement at 8 P.M. Friday


It lasted over 1/2 an hour. Really BIG! It looked like this, LA17

And before that all the helicorders had an OUTAGE from after 5 til after 7 p.m. . . — OR — someone removed the data then. Many helicorders showed a half hour of fluid movement at 1 p.m..

Here’s the LA12 chart:




At 8 A.M. there is big fluid movement again showing on LA17. Maybe they are ading/removing water with pumps. It looks suspicious when it happens during work hours even though they say they are on a Code 2. There was a 6.2 quake in Chile about that time.

The Independent [UK] – Risk of supervolcano eruption big enough to ‘affect the world’ far greater than thought, say scientists
The eruption of a “supervolcano” hundreds of times more powerful than conventional volcanoes – with the potential to wipe out civilisation as we know it – is more likely than previously thought, a study has found.  An analysis of the molten rock within the dormant supervolcano beneath Yellowstone National Park in the United States has revealed that an eruption is possible without any external trigger, scientists said. . . .

Nature Geoscience published the paper.

The supervolcano beneath Yellowstone National Park is more than twice as big as previously thought.
