[quote:The Oracle's Cookie:MV80ODk3MTc1Xzg5NDUxMDM5X0Q5MzNDODJF] [quote:The_Meridian:MV80ODk3MTc1Xzg5NDUwODcyXzlDMjJFMjdG] Great Info, thanks! I knew about the mines and it's always been a head-scratcher how these massive holes in the ground can be so close to a great lake and not just everything wash-out and/or cave-in. Even still, I'd love to go down there. [/quote] Well, I was FLOORED to find out about the salt mines under this area! Luckily whomever designed the mines was SMART enough to know they needed to be a reasonable distance from the lakes. The idiots in Louisianna, however, were NOT that lucky with their engineers. It is a WATER LEAK that compromises salt mines, of course. That the Louisianna salt mining company engineers DID NOT CONSIDER DISTANCE TO WATER SOURCES was what "sealed the fate" of Bayou Corne. The water flooded the cavern of the mined salt deposit which eventually collapsed the landmass around it--and the TOWN above the salt mine. [youtube] https://youtu.be/a7cOSzEKvrQ[/youtube] https://youtu.be/a7cOSzEKvrQ :FairUSE: Here is an example of what the town of Bayou Corne had to face when their salt mine started to collapse. THAT must have been very upsetting. Sadly, Meridian...IF there are large quakes around Detroit --such as following a New Madrid quake in the future-- the salt mines under Detroit will, indeed, flood and the same fate (maybe not immediately but within months) that Bayou Corne experienced is almost guaranteed. Of course, the mines UNDER DETROIT ARE HUGE (spanning miles) so the "sinkhole" event will be much more destructive than the one that took out the Bayou Corne area. And just one more thought... there may be some people in the area who may think of the salt caverns under Detroit as a great "bomb shelter" in the event of spaceweather emergencies or attacks. I would suggest you NEVER think of a salt mine as a "shelter" if you are close to a lake. (Logical, right?) lol! [b][i] Just a heads-up...You don't want to STAY in Detroit if quakes begin to become common place. That will be your warning to SPLIT.[/i][/b] :cheers: The Oracle's Cookie [/quote]
Had a dream that literally shoot me awake.
Nothing much to it, my wife and I are in bed, and I'm sleeping and she's watching TV, all of the sudden everything is shaking and I "Wake Up" within the dream and ask "Are we having an EQ???"
And then I woke up for real.
We've had 4's in or around Detroit before and I never noticed them, so I'm guessing this must've been a 5.x or above.
