14 earthquakes hit Tennessee and Missouri in the New Madrid Seismic Zone in 24 hours – Is the Big One near?
Since 24 hours, a swarm of 14 earthquakes is sweeping across Tennessee, Missouri and Arkansas, right in the New Madrid Seismic Zone.
What happens to nuke plants in case of a big quake? Evidently, nothing.
Idiots at DHS and FEMA think power loss / destruction at nuke plants in the event of a big New Madrid Fault earthquake is no problem!
Near Watts Bar and Sequoya nuke plants!
2.1 quake in the same area – RSOE REPORT
These are small quakes but they may be precursors to larger ones.
The 2 nuke plants are old and have miles of piping that gets brittle from the Wigner effect. Lots of info on old, brittle piping in nuke plants when you look up the recently closed San Onofre plant in California.
It was the creaky old piping that caused the public outcry.
“WASHINGTON (AP) – Federal scientists say the chance of damaging earthquakes hitting east of the Rockies has increased significantly, much of it a man-made byproduct of drilling for energy. Oklahoma now has a 1 in 8 chance of damaging quakes in 2016, surpassing California as the state with the highest probability…”
Fort Campbell – PrepareAthon: Ready for any emergency
“Garrison personnel, units and organizations from across the Fort Campbell community conducted a training exercise Wednesday to practice responding to a severe weather event. The training scenarios tested individuals and organizations on their ability to react to a tornado hitting the installation.
The exercise was part of Fort Campbell’s continuous training on its emergency response plans for a large number of contingencies and the training marks Fort Campbell’s participation in America’s PrepareAthon, a nationwide campaign for increased community preparedness and resilience. . . .”
. . . “Tornadoes are the No. 1 thing we prepare for, but we always prepare for winter weather as well,” Fangman said. “We do an exercise every year on winter storms. We prepare for flash floods and flooding, wildfires, earthquakes – being this close to the New Madrid fault line we could be impacted – those are the natural disasters we prepare for.” . . .
♦ Is this “PrepareAthon” another rehearsal for marshal law disguised as disaster “help”? Recall after Katrina the soldiers pointed guns at nearby helpers who arrived with food and blankets and forced them to turn around. They herded the helpless population onto overpasses without drinking water and, at gunpoint, into the horrific no-water-no-electricity Superdome.
“INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana is typically safe from earthquake activity like the devastation in Ecuador or the major damage in Japan, but the state has seen its share of events that caused damage along the New Madrid fault line.
Here’s a look at the most significant earthquakes in recorded Indiana history, according to the U.S. Geological Survey . . . “
Mary Greeley reports (sorry, no embed)
“Sorry to interrupt this thread, but the ground is smoking, gas is pluming, and the New Madrid area is booming! The fire department is leaning toward seismic explanation!!
Trenton Fire Department
February 29 at 3:11pm · Trenton, MO, United States ·
There have been reports of loud, unexplained booming noises at night in the Trenton area, and a lot of people have questions.
To put it bluntly, we do not know what is causing them – and neither does anybody else.
This also does not appear to be a local phenomena- these sounds have been reported in different areas of the US for a while now.
There are a lot of theories; people often compare the sound to that of fireworks, there is a weather phenomena called a “cold boom” which can produce this type of noise, and the behavior of groundwater (or fracking fluid) in general can cause such noises, the shifting of tectonic plates can cause similar phenomena, and then of course there are many possible man-made causes, such as the “sonic boom” of aircraft traveling at speeds in excess of Mach 1.
These noises have not been localized enough for us in this area to pin point them, and the lack of seismographic monitoring equipment this far north in Missouri is a factor in buttoning down a geological origin. The distribution of reports in the US seems to roughly coincide with areas of known seismic activity, so a geological explanation seems likely.”
