Mystery loud booms, New Madrid Fault, Louisiana sinkhole, Mega earthquake: The 1000 words picture

One picture is worth 1,000 words. Well, here is such a picture! Notice the correlation between the starred areas, representing areas experiencing “mysterious loud booms” and shaking, and the New Madrid Fault and shake zone. This “loud boom” illustration does not include areas experiencing sinkhole development, derailments, explosions, and collapsing buildings, but the states of their occurrence pretty much match the ones shown. The time period covered is January-February 2013.

Per the Zetas of ZetaTalk, a major earthquake in the New Madrid Fault zone area will devastate vast areas of the United States and Canada. The New Madrid fault line follows the Mississippi River from Illinois to Arkansas, crossing five state lines – Illinois, Missouri, Arkansas, Kentucky, and Tennessee – as well as the Mississippi River in at least three places. The New Madrid seismic zone consists of a series of faults, including fault lines that run up toward the Great Lakes and from the center of the Gulf of Mexico up the East Coast. – Barbara Schneider

  1. I’ve always been facinated with the NMSZ. It is not a single fault. It is a fault system that trends SW to NE along the Reelfoot Rift. The known fault system comes from about Paducah KY. to Galveston TX. The New Madrid fault system seems to be a itraplate reverse normal (Compressional boundary. There is evidence of anctien magma intrusions dating back to when the Mid-Atlantic-Rift tried to establish itself here. However, the adjacent rift (now the Mid-Atlantic-Rift) took hold and overpowered the Reelfoot Rift.

    Based on paleo-siezmic studies, the 1811-1812 series was a very rare event. That even spaned five months with at least 100 shocks, including the three big shocks. Check out Alonzo Dow’s Diary. It includes a letter by Eliza Jane Bryan. She gives a very detailed account from late summer to March 1812.
