It was a 4.2 or something close to it 20 years ago. I lived in Odessa, Midland now, at the time. I was 9 years old. Still remember it.

Scroll down this page for a decent map of the faults in TX...
the larger ones. More than you would think.

SouthernLight, I'm not getting any maps. Just a short article on heat flow. Help?

hmmm... map should be at bottom of page.
Idk. If you see a blank spot, right click on it and see if a reload image menu pops up.

or just do a "fault zones Texas" search in images... you will get quite a few

Btw, also meant to add the link to an old thread that provided that smu.edu link

Thanks for coming back. I did get a blank square. I'll give it a try. I've read the thread last year when I was trying to find that old map. It's a really good one.

Yes, I agree, that was a good thread!

Checking out the image search... some pretty interesting info to be found!
Look at the faults in Houston, alone!

I live off Faudree in Midland Co. and was born and raised Odessa, TX. Pretty cool to know another GLP'er in Midland/Odessa!

Re: 3.9 in west Texas
Hey neighbors! More of us around than I thought! Midland, here

Remember the ground cracking last year in Ft Stockton? I haven't heard anything lately, but turns out there is a fault that runs through there, too. Was in the Ft Stockton paper and picked up by the news in Midland/Odessa.

And I remember the quake 20 yrs ago - but I was considerably older than you guys!! lol

Yeah, I don't have a clue, but have been looking at that myself. Balcones ties in pretty tight with the New Madrid via the salt deposits (looks to me anyway... total geo-dummy though)

I don't think there have been many risk assessment studies done on these smaller fault zones. If you are into some rather dry, but informative reading here is a link to a USGS
report.
[link to pubs.usgs.gov]

There is a fair size one running through the most densely populated area of El Paso... North/South. Here is a larger pdf of the plate from the paper linked above.

Re: 3.9 in west Texas
Texas is a welfare state anyways. They are a cancer to society. Best to wipe them off the map and start clean.
