So they've been saying it's the pressure from the levees that's causing the sand boils... well the USGS's website says something else!!!!!

[link to earthquake.usgs.gov]

They popped up all over Japan and they are saying that the sand boils have been a problem in the area for some time now [link to www.wafb.com] So I guess the "big one's" coming soon!

Sand blows dot the New Madrid fault area!
[link to www.showme.net]

The world’s largest sand boil was created by the New Madrid earthquake. It is 1.4 miles long and 136 acres in extent, located in the Bootheel of Missouri, about 8 miles west of Hayti, Missouri. Locals call it “The Beach.” Other, much smaller, sand boils are found throughout the area.

This is what happened before the great New Madrid earthquake:

Sand Boils
The world’s largest sand boil was created by the New Madrid earthquake. It is 1.4 miles long and 136 acres in extent, located in the Bootheel of Missouri, about 8 miles west of Hayti, Missouri. Locals call it “The Beach.” Other, much smaller, sand boils are found throughout the area.

Seismic Tar Balls
Small pellets up to golf ball sized tar balls are found in sand boils and fissures. They are petroleum that has been solidified, or “petroliferous nodules.”

Earthquake Lights
Lights flashed from the ground, caused by quartz crystals being squeezed. The phenomena is called “seismoluminescence.”

Warm Water
Water thrown up by an earthquake was lukewarm. It is speculated that the shaking caused the water to heat up and/or quartz light heated the water.

Earthquake Smog
The skies turned dark during the earthquakes, so dark that lighted lamps didn’t help. The air smelled bad, and it was hard to breathe. It is speculated that it was smog containing dust particles caused by the eruption of warm water into cold air.

Loud Thunder
Sounds of distant thunder and loud explosions accompanied the earthquakes.

Animal Warnings
People reported strange behavior by animals before the earthquakes. They were nervous and excited. Domestic animals became wild, and wild animals became tame. Snakes came out of the ground from hibernation. Flocks of ducks and geese landed near people.


I guess these are the things that we need to watch for...

That's odd, because when I first read the sand boil thread, it made me think of liquefication. The description really reminded me of the information that was circulating regarding the liquefication in (Chiba) Japan. Then I went.. "naah" "they'd" tell us if there were earthquakes occurring in and around the levees. But, then liquefication makes me think of "sinkholes"... is there any connection there as well? Hmm...

Apples and oranges. You're talking about 2 distinct different things.

Sand boils on levees often occur during floods and people are sent out as a precautionary measure to keep and eye out for them so they can be repaired and maintain the integrity of the levee.

Liquification due to ground shaking is a whole other thing.

A sand boil is sand and water that come out onto the ground surface during an earthquake as a result of liquefaction at shallow depth.

That's not to say these sand boils near the Mississippi just go with the territory.

This is what happened before the great New Madrid earthquake:

Sand Boils
The world’s largest sand boil was created by the New Madrid earthquake. It is 1.4 miles long and 136 acres in extent, located in the Bootheel of Missouri, about 8 miles west of Hayti, Missouri. Locals call it “The Beach.” Other, much smaller, sand boils are found throughout the area.

Seismic Tar Balls
Small pellets up to golf ball sized tar balls are found in sand boils and fissures. They are petroleum that has been solidified, or “petroliferous nodules.”

Earthquake Lights
Lights flashed from the ground, caused by quartz crystals being squeezed. The phenomena is called “seismoluminescence.”

Warm Water
Water thrown up by an earthquake was lukewarm. It is speculated that the shaking caused the water to heat up and/or quartz light heated the water.

Earthquake Smog
The skies turned dark during the earthquakes, so dark that lighted lamps didn’t help. The air smelled bad, and it was hard to breathe. It is speculated that it was smog containing dust particles caused by the eruption of warm water into cold air.

Loud Thunder
Sounds of distant thunder and loud explosions accompanied the earthquakes.

Animal Warnings
People reported strange behavior by animals before the earthquakes. They were nervous and excited. Domestic animals became wild, and wild animals became tame. Snakes came out of the ground from hibernation. Flocks of ducks and geese landed near people.
