I think it's water. In Mexico water tables crashed from so much use. But in TX, the drought probably evaporated the water tables instead. The same result, collapsing land, sinkholes, etc.

We already have big cracks in front yards of houses for sale, they go down about 3-4 inches. Allt he sidewalks and driveways are cracked and broken in my neighborhood and foundations too.

You should check out the ones we have at my folks' farm. They go down a foot or more.

Nasty business this drought.

Re: Balcones Fault Line in Texas
There's been recent talk about the Balcones Fault Line in Texas, which many people don't know about, while others believe it's showing signs of activity.


The Balcones Fault Line runs along the I-35 corridor from Waco through Austin and past San Antonio. West of the line, lies the Hill Country. East of the lines, are the Texas Coastal Plains. There are hundreds of those fault lines splitting out from the main one running East.

Here's a map showing the fault line:

[link to geology.heroy.smu.edu]


And I found this interesting post on a past thread here at GLP:

The are three faults that run together, in a point, about a quarter mile north of Williams Square, in Irving. I used to have a map from the USGS but it's been removed on purpose.
The faults are The Quachita Thrust Front, The Balcones Fault, and the East Texas Uplift.

When the 5+ event struck Alpine, Tx in 1995, we felt it in Irving, as I lived and was at work that night. Though these have never been very active, I expect they soon will be much more so.

Know that Downtown Dallas, from Central Expressway to Stemmons on the west to just above downtown to 20 on the south or almost that far sit on a sinkhole.

When an event over six strikes there, the limestone bedrock will fracture and the area will sink apporx. 250 feet straight down.

Re: Balcones Fault Line in Texas
this was a quote from the USGS from one that happened some 20 miles from where i live.im in Navarro county.


Slight damage resulted from an earthquake in the Mexia - Wortham area on April 9, 1932. Loose bricks were thrown down, and some plaster cracked (V-VI). The shock was also felt at Coolidge, Currie, Groesbeck, Hillsboro, Teague, and Richland. A moderate earthquake affected an area of about 7700 square kilometers in northeastern Texas and an adjoining portion of Oklahoma on April 11, 1934. The tremor was most distinctly felt at Arthur City, Caviness, Chicota, Powderly, and Trout Switch (intensity V). Many persons who felt the shock reported having heard a roaring or rumbling noise. Two shocks were recognized by many observers.

Re: Balcones Fault Line in Texas
I did a three part paper in college on the fracking being done in north Texas in the year 2007.

I immediatly raised concern about the dissplacement of wild life....
But this all towers of my original concerns about wild life.

My grandma told me of a city in south Texas that was evacuated many years ago, because drilling caused disaster. Will update on name of city soon.

Bumping this thread. On the Wikipedia page for the Balconies Fault line it says it was recorded active, a 3.0 quake in Irving two weeks ago. Two or three days ago a coworker and I felt our building on the MoPac in Austin.

Re: Balcones Fault Line in Texas
thanks for feedback. Last fair sized quake on Balcones was near Waco and did some damage. Probability is the too much oil was pumped from Odessa area, has been for years. Think quake is overdue for Dallas area. Have checked on Fault that goes through Irving. It runs all the way into Canada. You can look it up on the net though you don't hear anything about it. I believe it to be connected to New Madrid at some point.
Also keeping check on events around Pampa, Tx as well.
Fact: number of events have been increasing since 95' as well as average size. that's why you won't find records on USGS site. They're scared, as they should be.

Too much weirdness lately ... in & around Dallas TEXAS area = ongoing & frequent Earthquakes here in these parts when really never much before in history.

Also,, huge Booms being heard, crazy weather, severe drought for past decade - water shortages ... and does anyone remember the Stephenville UFO fleet that showed up on the Joint Reserve base (ex-SAC CARSWELL) radar a few years ago .... ???

Now this week seeing threads with reports about volcanoes firing up and worries / warnings about New Madrid + Canary Islands + Yellowstone + lots other stuff too.

BE AWARE BE ALERT BE PREPARED !!!
