New Madrid fault seismic zone

The New Madrid fault seismic zone is six times larger than the more famous San Andreas Fault zone in California, and it covers portions of Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Missouri, Arkansas, Kentucky, Tennessee and Mississippi.

Scientists tell us that the New Madrid fault is about 30 years overdue for a major event, and because of the nature of the Earth’s crust in that part of the country, a major earthquake would do significant damage all the way to the east coast.

The two earthquakes reported here are probably not related to a major event to come in tomorrow or in a few weeks. But these earthquakes are signs and you should be sure you are PREPARED for the NEXT BIG ONE!
