A 2.7 magnitude earthquake struck the state of Georgia this past week — several people reported hearing some kind of “explosion”– then felt an earthquake.
I think I may have determined a “cause” or a likely “earthquake trigger” — and more specifically, why THIS area in particular can expect further movement . Also, I think this may explain why some people heard an explosion of some kind.
Screenshot of the earthquake culprit below:
We see a chain of “old” dormant volcanic sites .. furthest to the south we see a massive supervolcano caldera.. several miles across.. 4 miles long / 2 miles wide
There is a MINE at the location in question — on Blue Hole Road @ Pigeon Mountain in Georgia…. the name of the mine is… seen on google earth street view —
VULCAN MINES !!
Check out the GATE TO THE MINE !
In between the cone volcano and the larger caldera, we see an old blasted out “flank volcano”:
Then to the north (seen below) is the smaller “cone volcano”.. — Pigeon Mountain — where VULCAN mines are located.
Screenshot of distance in miles from earthquake epicenter:
Screenshot of all three volcanic areas from above:
In short — my opinion — the earthquake in Georgia was due to the old dormant supervolcano caldera, cone, and blasted out flank volcano .. located 19 miles west of the earthquake epicenter.
This is due to the global uptick in volcanic / tectonic activity.. literally, we are seeing volcanic areas which have been dormant for thousands of years are starting to show some activity — Pisgah, Black Hills, Volcano CA, Mono Lake, Yellowstone uplift, sites in Idaho, Utah, Missouri, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama have shown activity… this is just listing USA activity recently (past 2 months).
Now we can add Pigeon Mountain to the list .
Here are the USGS statistics on the quake:
- This event has been reviewed by a seismologist.
|Depth||5.2 km (3.2 miles)|
Expect further earthquakes at, or within a short distance from, this dormant volcanic area. If things continue.. we may see something like what I’ve got linked below !!
Here is the New York Times article from the year 1857 — located on the USGS website.. which CONFIRMS Georgia as being a past place of volcanic unrest (within the past 150 years).
