Is The Gulf Disaster Related
To AR Quake Cluster?

From Patricia Doyle, PhD
Hello Jeff: I have been wondering about earthquake activity due to the Gulf disaster. Well, I just found this article on the Arkansas cluster.
Of course, I am not saying it is a direct cause.  The quakes are very small, 1.8 etc. We know that Arkansas does have military bases and it is possible the seismograph is picking up artillery fire. Every summer, we have nearby West Point practicing artillery and believe me, 30+ miles away and across the Hudson, we feel it. The house shakes. It almost feels like an earthquake tremor.  Hopefully, the USGS can calculate the earthquake times to any artillery practice in the area.  
I believe that we could see more earthquakes in the area of the Gulf and the New Madrid fault as well.
Arkansas Earthquake Clusters?
Do an experiment for me. Take a balloon, inflate it. Get two books and place one on each side of the balloon opposite each other. Now deflate the balloon and notice what happens to the books. The books shift towards each other.
The massive pressurized oil and methane reserve now blowing out south of the Louisiana coast is just like a the deflating balloon. As this reserve empties a huge cavern is being created under the gulf floor. Usually these caverns are back filled with seawater as the oil is removed to stop a catastrophic collapse and make extracting the oil easier.
Unfortunately, the BP blow out is not being equalized in this manner.
Could the shifting walls of the oil cavern cause the earthquake swarms in Arkansas? Will the quakes grow in magnitude as more oil and methane is released? Could the shifting wall of the oil cavern destabilize the New Madrid fault? How big of a tsunami would be created if the oil cavern collapses?
Another earthquake shook parts of Northwest Arkansas. It's the third one in as many months.
The most recent earthquake was recorded by the U.S. Geological Survey on Thursday between Springdale and Rogers. It measured a 2.3 on the Richter Scale. Residents however didn't report feeling the quake.
On May 20, a 2.6 earthquake was recorded near XNA in Benton County. And 2.5 quake shook the same area on April 25th.
In Central Arkansas, 36 earthquakes have been reported since June 2. The largest was a 3.3 on the Richter Scale.
