Tues. -Seismic Activity Near Oxy 3 (and then helicorders konk out there) Explained + Big Mexico Quake Sloshes Lake FUBAR

A false alarm story –

This looks fishy. Lots of seismic activity shows on the SE corner of Lake FUBAR, where the new-new berm is sinking and then the helicorders at that area all konk out. At about 2 p.m. Monday and they are still off-line. Here is LA18 – it is still working and shows constant grumbles going on.

The trouble is near home base on this map –

Parish Blog Update: They went back to CODE 1 … maybe someone pulled a plug.

Oh, . . .  it says …

“- Replacing data cards on seismic monitoring equipment”.  So that is why everything is blank.

Newer Parish Blog Update – (oops!) confused back to CODE 2!

UPDATE – BIG MEXICO QUAKE

At 5:46 A.M. CST there was a giant 6.3 quake in Mexico. It is more near the Gulf than the Pacific but not on the coast. It severely sloshed Lake FUBAR for over half an hour as seen on this (working) helicorder at LA18. fluid

What does all of this big sloshing over self-made and external seismic events do to the damaged cavern walls?

Impact of Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill on Coral Communities Is Deeper and Broader than Predict  – the article mentions all kinds of fancy stuff at U. Of Miss. that could easily be used to look at Lake FUBAR.

 

How Different Events Look on Helicorders at Lake FUBAR

At 1:50 a.m. today there was a pretty big, 4.8M, shallow earthquake in Mexico. It looked like this on the helicordes at Lake FUBAR:

LA12 showed some big grumbles in the morning before the Mexico quake. But U. Memphis charts don’t show this big twang at 5 a.m. that Quake Watch chart shows:

Harriette points out that RSOE shows TWO 7.1 quakes in Mexico near each other and about 10 miles different in depth. One may have set off the other but they have exact same time on the record.

  1. 7.1 quake   – 0.16 km (0.10 miles) SE of Mazatan, Chiapas, Mexico
  2. 7.1 quake   – 0.08 km (0.05 miles) SE of Puerto Madero, Chiapas, Mexico

Dreaded cow threat to big oil: Cow blamed for causing spill in oil patch

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A cow is suspected of causing a spill of natural gas liquids near a tributary of the Little Missouri River, prompting North Dakota regulators to warn energy companies to ensure their facilities are bovine-proof. . . .
