    The mid-west has its large earthquakes, too. One of them caused the Mississippi River to change course. The NE is overdue for a big one and places like Boston are in for a major shock when that happens as the back bay area is mostly over fill that tends to liquify when shaken by one. That area has some old, very expensive homes, too.

    I think our great , great, great grandchildren dont want to get dumped on
    in 200 years... neither -----2000 years might be a better thing to hope for,,,,

    If the fault that goes through the mid west and up through Cincinnati were to let loose anything like it
    did back in the early 1800s, it would be biblical ..... lots and lots of death and destruction.... That was really
    not that long ago and I hope we never have to see one like this again anytime soon...
    No one lived around here back then so the death count was low but the huge population today would be decimated by this..... Nobody is prepared for the disaster it would be

    I know this is off topic, but i find this stuff so interesting. Just to put things in perspective:

    1989 San Francisco Bay Area Earthquake - Magnitude 6.9

    1811-1812 New Madrid Missouri Earthquakes - Magnitude 8.6

    2011 Japan Earthquake (Fukushima etc) - 9.1 Magnitude

    2004 Indian Ocean Earthquake & Tsunami - 9.2 Magnitude

    1700 Cascadia (Northwest USA incl. Seattle) - 9.2 Magnitude (estimated)

    1964 Alaska Earthquake - 9.2+ Magnitude, second largest ever recorded

    1960 Chile Earthquake - 9.4 Magnitude, largest ever recorded

    So yes, earthquake straps are called for in Terry's neck of the woods ;-) Luckily those really big ones only come once every 500-600 years
