New Madrid Earthquakes December 1811

Continuing my personal understanding of stress zones and times of year and a cultural awareness of how the orbit of the Earth, the Moon and seasons put stress on tectonic 'hot zones'.. then a big one is about due around the New Madrid fault line system, covering the area from Missouri to Arkansas. Geologists claim that magnitude 7.5 or larger shakes through this area every 200 to 300 years. The last massive upheaval in this large fault system were the 1811/1812 New Madrid earthquakes.

In my view this is similar to the pattern I see in the November 2004 Grimsvötn Sumatra Cycle, in which from November 1st to December 26, 2004 volcanoes in Iceland and areas in Sumatra became active resulting in a really massive earthquake and Indian Ocean tsunami.

This behaviour repeated itself in November 2010 where volcanic and tectonic activity began suddenly with signs of activity in Indonesia and Iceland, once again with a tsunami. I wonder is it possible that we really do not understand what actually generates tsunamis? The minds of those studying this phenomenon are too narrow. The mind focuses on one small point.. oh, the Earth shook here.. no this has nothing to do with the shaking anywhere else.

Just go ask the Earth!

Not only is the Earth's continental activity related; but earthquakes are related to each other in cycles that last hundreds of years and even thousands of years. Only the human being refuses to see or acknowledge this relationship.

Every eighteen months this fault releases a magnitude 4.0+ tremor, the last one being a magnitude 4.3 tremor known as the 1996 Thanksgiving quake .. a coincidence that this took place in November. On Saturday 20th of November 2010 a magnitude 4.2 earthquake rattled Northern Arkansas .. around Full Moon again in November!

Devastating New Madrid quakes, when they happen, cover a larger ground area than Californian earthquakes. The New Madrid earthquakes of 1811-1812 took place in the December-January Earth's orbit danger zone...

On December 16, 1811, the 400 residents of New Madrid, Missouri, were shaken out of their beds at two in the morning by a violent earthquake. Huge cracks split the ground. The waters of the Mississippi rose and fell like a great tide. Giant waves rose up and swept north, giving the impression that the river was actually flowing backwards.

These earthquakes were a series of over 2000 shocks in five months, five of which were 8.0 or more in magnitude. On December 16, 1811 the New Madrid Seismic Zone experienced two earthquakes with approximate magnitudes of 8.0. Two more high magnitude quakes followed on 23rd of January and on February 7 1812.

Retired Geologist Jack Reed suggests that the New Madrid Fault is related to ongoing evolution in the Gulf of Mexico. Is it possible the gas and oil are bubbling out from the seabed because some cosmic impact whacked in creating the Gulf of Mexico and vertically sheering the land off the coast of what is now the west coast of Florida?

The volcanoes, the oil and the gas down there below the seabed are rebuilding the crustal layer over?? millions of years. If you cut yourself the human volcanic blood clots and hardens to close the wound and the cells rebuild the inner and outer layers of skin tissue repairing the damage. The Earth is more complex and heals over generations we cannot imagine. My own question is, did the impact run a crack up through to Canada - part of which is called the New Madrid Fault?

On Monday, December 16, 1811 at 2:30 A.M. the Earth shook...

In the south of Canada, in the villages of the Iroquois, Ottawa, Chippewa and Huron, it came as a deep and terrifying rumble. Creek banks caved in and huge trees toppled in a continuous crash of snapping branches. In all of the Great Lakes, but especially Lake Michigan and Lake Erie, the waters danced and great waves broke erratically on the shores, though there was no wind.

In the western plains, there was a fierce grinding sound and a shuddering, which jarred the bones and set teeth on edge. Earthen vessels split apart and great herds of bison staggered to their feet and stampeded in abject panic.

To the south and west, tremendous boulders broke loose on hills and cut swaths through the trees and brush to the bottoms. Rapidly running streams stopped and eddied, and some of them abruptly went dry and the fish that had lived in them flopped away their lives on the muddy or rocky beds.

To the south, whole forests fell in incredible tangles. New streams sprang up where none had been before. In the Upper Creek village of Tuckabatchee, every dwelling shuddered and shook, and then collapsed upon itself and its inhabitants. To the south and east, palm trees lashed about like whips, and lakes emptied of their waters, while ponds appeared in huge declivities which suddenly dented the surface of the earth.
