Just as we saw in 2011, 2012, and 2013 .. a series of small / moderate earthquakes began to occur in the fracking operations ADJACENT to Oklahoma, and Arkansas after larger West Coast movement.
Today, August 31 2014, the Trinidad Colorado fracking operation, located near the Colorado / New Mexico border, produced an earthquake (after a period of silence spanning multiple months).
Information on this earthquake from the USGS:
M2.7 – 40km WSW of Trinidad, Colorado 2014-08-31 10:20:50 UTC

37.070°N 104.938°W depth=5.3km (3.3mi)
As we saw in 2011, first a series of West Coast earthquakes (California / Oregon / Mexico), followed by larger movement at the fracking operations in Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Texas.
After we saw movement at the midwest Fracking operations, it was followed by movement at the magma chambers of Yellowstone.
Finally, after we saw movement in Yellowstone, there was movement along the rest of the craton edge — at areas in Colorado, East Coast Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Quebec Canada.
This happened again in 2012. A series of West Coast earthquakes , followed by midwest movement, followed by Western Craton edge movement, followed by the rest of the craton edge compensating the original movement with new earthquakes at the fracking operations (drilling locations) in Colorado, Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, Ohio, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Virginia, New York.
Repeat the aforementioned in 2013, but REMOVE the states which banned new injection well operations. The earthquakes in 2013-2014 centered in Oklahoma / Kansas / Yellowstone. Very few in Texas, or Colorado.
We’ve seen these events repeat YET AGAIN in 2014:
At the same time all the movement is occurring at the fracking operations, we also must make note of the multiple earthquakes at dormant volcanic locations in the United States. Nevada, Arizona, Idaho/Yellowstone, and in California. All showing activity at dormant volcanic locations.
The global unrest is showing around the Pacific, via multiple simultaneous large volcanic eruptions, this week alone we saw Papua New Guinea erupt, as well as Bardarbunga Volcano in Iceland.
Papua New Guinea:
Iceland watch live here:
Below: August 31st into September 1st 2014 at Bardarbunga Volcano in Iceland.
Worthy to note, as we saw in 2011, 2012, and 2013 … now in 2014 we’re hearing new reports this week of “sulfur smells” showing up in multiple areas along the edge of the craton, past several days reports in Pennsylvania and Salton Sea volcanic buttes in California.
Hydrogen Sulfide, which smells like natural gas / rotten eggs, is a common byproduct of tectonic movement, crustal displacement, and rising Magma.
Speaking of “rising”. Last week, reports that California is RISING at an alarming rate, upwards of 1/2 inch in the past several months. The professionals are blaming the DROUGHT as the cause of the rising crust underneath the plate. This is an obvious cover story, as we all know drought does not cause expansion in the earths crust.
Take the “California rising” news in conjunction with the other news over the past several months, that the magma chambers on the West Coast are “recharging” and “refilling”. That Yellowstone has risen over 2 1/2 inches since New Years, and moved 1/2 inch SOUTHEAST along the craton edge in the same time!
Most of these seismic events are indeed related. We need to keep watch along the edge of the craton, as well as the areas to the North and South of the West Coast of the United States (BC and Mexico) for the next several days. Possible large movement could come to the areas adjacent to the United States, as compensation movement for the excessive US activity in the past week.
California’s 6.0M actually displaced ground water aquifers to the surface, causing water to flow in dry creek beds. Thus, we can conclude major movement occurred along the NW portion of the plates edge…. meaning… Keep watch on the areas North of the original California movement in Napa Valley / San Francisco.
