Report FROM New Madrid Fault area: The surface rupture of the roads and highways is out of control. IN DEPTH REPORT
http://fourwinds10.com/siterun_data/environment/earth_changes/news.php?q=1277830900

I live on the new madrid fault. And I can tell you this.  The surface rupture of the roads and highways is out of control.

Also, everyday of the week the structure of my moms home is "cracking" and shifting. You can hear the walls and the surface crack.

Nearby is a dollar general store. In that parking lot there are 3 flagpoles that "vibrate" violently. (not shaking from wind) Each and everyday, the roads "blow" up potholes. U.S. 41 is ruptured severely.

Earthquakes Continue in New Madrid Fault as Central States Prepare For the Great Central U.S. ShakeOut Earthquake Drill

https://strangesounds.org/2019/10/earthquake-new-madrid-seismic-zon

After yesterday’s M3.0 quake, several tremors hit inside the New Madrid Fault today. The New Madrid Seismic Zone is constantly shaking since about 1 month, now.


Meanwhile Missouri and other Central States in the U.S.A. prepare for the Great Central U.S. ShakeOut Earthquake Drill that will take place on October 17, 2019.

The Great Central U.S. ShakeOut Earthquake Drill

Following FEMA’s “National Preparedness Month” in September, millions of people will participate in the Great Central U.S. ShakeOut earthquake drill on Thursday, October 17, 2019 and practice how to Drop, Cover, and Hold.

You can join the already 2.7 million people already registered for the 2019 Great Central U.S. ShakeOut here. Participating is a great way for your family or organization to be prepared to survive and recover quickly from big earthquakes – wherever you live, work, or travel.

https://www.shakeout.org/centralus/

Millions of people worldwide will practice how to Drop, Cover, and Hold On at 10:17 a.m. on October 17* during Great ShakeOut Earthquake Drills!

You can join them today by registering for the 2019 Great Central U.S. ShakeOut. Participating is a great way for your family or organization to be prepared to survive and recover quickly from big earthquakes– wherever you live, work, or travel.

Drop, Cover, Hold On! IEMA Encourages to all Illinoisans to Register, Participate in Annual Earthquake Drill

Staff Editor
October 14, 2019

SPRINGFIELD — The Illinois Emergency Management Agency is encouraging all residents, schools, businesses and other organizations to participate in the Great Central U.S. ShakeOut eat 10:17 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 17.  The goal of this “Drop, Cover and Hold On” drill is to draw attention to the earthquake hazard that exists in Illinois, across the country and around the world.

The annual ShakeOut is an international event involving millions of participants from more than 40 states and territories and several countries.  To date, millions of people have registered worldwide, including more than two million people in the central United States.

Illinois is sandwiched between two active seismic zones: the New Madrid Seismic Zone and the Wabash Valley Seismic Zone.  Earthquakes can occur at anytime, anywhere and without warning On Friday, Sept. 27, a 3.27 magnitude earthquake shook parts of the Missouri bootheel. On Monday, Sept. 30, the United States Geological Survey reports seven earthquakes occurred in one day.  Geologist are warning residents that while we often associate earthquakes with the west coast, quakes can and do occur closer to home.  This underscores the importance of preparedness.  An earthquake can strike when you are at work, at home, at school, or while on vacation.  ShakeOut provides the opportunity to practice what you would do in the event of an earthquake.

Shakeout Participation is as easy as 1, 2, 3…

1. REGISTER your home, school or organization on the ShakeOut website:  www.ShakeOut.org/centralus.  Once registered, your point of contact will receive important information about earthquakes and preparedness.

2. INFORM the members of your home, school or organization of your participation plans.

3. PRACTICE “DROP, COVER and HOLD ON”  at 10:17 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 17.
Drop to the ground onto your hands and knees.
Cover your head and neck with one arm to protect yourself from falling objects.
Hold On to a sturdy table or desk until the shaking is done.
These are the recommended actions to take during earthquake shaking.

Additional earthquake preparedness and mitigation information is available on the following websites: http://www.ready.illinois.gov and http://www.cusec.org.

DEVELOPING: New Madrid fault rattled with 20 earthquakes in 2 weeks

https://endtimeheadlines.org/2019/12/developing-new-madrid-fault-rattled-with-20-earthquakes-in-2-weeks/

It is the 20th earthquake in two weeks recorded along the New Madrid seismic zone, which the USGS calls the “most seismically active in North America east of the Rockies.”

JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - In the last two weeks, the U.S. Geological Survey recorded 20 earthquakes along the New Madrid fault line.

The latest quake, measuring 2.2 magnitude, happened around 3:30 p.m. Sunday.

Am guessing about 100 miles, however the Black Fault runs through our farm, and I've long wondered if "our" fault is connected to New Madrid.  Plus, the danger zones extend quite far, and from what I can tell the worst danger zones encompass the Missouri, Mississippi, and Ohio Rivers.  See attached maps.

Another reason I wonder about the connection underground of A LOT of fault lines is that one day years ago I was standing indoors, in between chores, when I suddenly felt a rumbling, and felt as if I were gently bobbing up and down for a few seconds, and the sound reminded me of a huge truck driving by, but we live out in the middle of nowhere and there is no truck that could nagivate that close (it was the same sound one would hear on a major city street when trucks roll by).

I sort of passed it off as a minor quake, even after learning shortly thereafter about the Indonesian tsunami and quake.  I never made a connection until weeks later when reading a newspaper article about how water levels in some Missouri wells fluctuated wildly immediately after the Indonesian quake.  It was on reading that article that I realized that what I had felt that day was most likely the end result of that Indonesian quake reverberating across the entire globe, and whether it would be considered a mild quake here is irrelevant--I felt it and the date correlated, and I'm sure the time felt here was a little later (hours?) than the time it struck at epicenter.

Another reason I wonder how much connection there is between and among fault lines is that in the major 1811-12 New Madrid quakes (a series), it was reported that the Earth movement caused church bells to ring in Boston.

It's one thing to read dry, scientific data about quakes while sitting comfortably in one's home, but reading eyewitness accounts is another thing.  From Wikipedia:
John Bradbury, a Fellow of the Linnean Society, was on the Mississippi on the night of December 15, 1811, and describes the tremors in great detail in his Travels in the Interior of America in the Years 1809, 1810 and 1811, published in 1817:[9]

    After supper, we went to sleep as usual: about ten o'clock, and in the night I was awakened by the most tremendous noise, accompanied by an agitation of the boat so violent, that it appeared in danger of upsetting ... I could distinctly see the river as if agitated by a storm; and although the noise was inconceivably loud and terrific, I could distinctly hear the crash of falling trees, and the screaming of the wild fowl on the river, but found that the boat was still safe at her moorings.

    By the time we could get to our fire, which was on a large flag in the stern of the boat, the shock had ceased; but immediately the perpendicular banks, both above and below us, began to fall into the river in such vast masses, as nearly to sink our boat by the swell they occasioned ... At day-light we had counted twenty-seven shocks.

Eliza Bryan[10] in New Madrid, Territory of Missouri, wrote the following eyewitness account in March 1812:

    On the 16th of December, 1811, about two o'clock, a.m., we were visited by a violent shock of an earthquake, accompanied by a very awful noise resembling loud but distant thunder, but more hoarse and vibrating, which was followed in a few minutes by the complete saturation of the atmosphere, with sulphurious vapor, causing total darkness. The screams of the affrighted inhabitants running to and fro, not knowing where to go, or what to do—the cries of the fowls and beasts of every species—the cracking of trees falling, and the roaring of the Mississippi— the current of which was retrograde for a few minutes, owing as is supposed, to an irruption in its bed— formed a scene truly horrible.

Amazing, Ilinda, that you felt the aftermath of the Indonesian quake, and that local wells were affected!  Did you need to bleed air out of your pipes? 

From the account that you published, one wonders if there might be any cosmic connection between periods of intense seismic activity and political revolution, considering all that occurred in or around 1812?

Thank you so much for posting the maps detailing the zone affected by the historic New Madrid quake.

We didn't notice any air in our pipes, and our water level is so high that it often seeps out of the top of the cap covering the well pipe that extends above the ground, so our water level might have been so high that our water didn't slosh enough for us to notice, as our water pump is 160' deep.

Good question about possible connection between seismic activity and political events--one that someone with knowledge in several areas (political science, statistics, and seismology) might be able to answer it.

You probably noticed that most of PA is in the danger zone if New Madrid really blows!

I did notice that!  Fortunately, the Appalachian foothills where we live begin around the outer edge of that affected margin (and technically we're only on a massif which slammed into the foothills in ancient times).
