I know about that and I also know that Reelfoot lake ont he west side of TN
was created by the same fault but what I'm referring to is all of the
doomsday talk that the end of the world is coming from New Madrid MO soon.
Anywhere has tremors and quakes, because we live on the plates of the crust
of the earth. The Mississippi and Ohio river confluences are very close to
NEw Madrid which might indicate that the fault's lines are the river beds.
What I'm not buying is the talk of of some terrible thing soon that will
open the earth - just as many Californians aren't out buying future
beachfront property in Nevada and Arizona.
