    Yes, the New Madrid quakes occurred in Dec. 1811 and January 1812
    and were the largest quakes in the Eastern US since Europeans arrived.
    The quakes were estimated to be between 7.2 and 8.1, with some
    observers reporting the Mississippi River flowed backwards for a while.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1812_New_Madrid_earthquake

    A swarm of small quakes in the area could be a foreboding
    of something developing there.
    With large quake hitting around the world, this could impact
    the area.

    There were two large quakes today, a 7.1 in Japan and a 6.5 in Mexico.

    When large quakes occur they can affect other areas.
    Seismologist like to use the dropped soda bottle analogy.
    Once you shake up the system, the pressure increases and
    can spread to other areas.
    In this world of trouble and strife,
    bring some peace to someone's life

    They (scientists) have chalked up the AR quakes to "fracking"

    Hey Marc - stay out of the arch!
    "A casual stroll through the lunatic asylum shows that faith does not prove anything." Friedrich Nietzsche

    "You ask where I live. I cannot tell you. I am a Voyageur, a Chicot, sir. I live everywhere. My grandfather was a voyageur; he died while on a voyage. My father was a voyageur; he died while on a voyage. I will also die while en route, and another Chicot will take my place. Such is our course of life."
