You really have to see this for yourself if you're within the New Madrid fault range:
And I have to list this in an odd way because Topix won't allow us to just copy/drag a website onto here, so just put this together and go:
www.(of course)

If this doesn't work, google the title which is:
New Madrid Seismic Zone graphics, illustrations, diagrams
Natural gas pipelines & NMSZ
The amount of oil, gas, everything pipelines criss-crossed and directly over this fault,
is UNBELIEVABLE.
ENJOY!

Worrying about a "what if" earthquake is like looking under the bed for the booger man. You can live your life in fear of the sky falling or push on one day at a time like forward thinking people have done for ages.

Looking under the bed ????
Am thinking the poor man in Florida that was swallowed up by a sinkhole while in his bed wished he would of had a warning.
The NM fault has become more active and then all kinds of strange things like hugh sinkholes begIn happenIng. The one outside Baton Rouge is now 15 acres and 400 ft deep and bubbling like a pot.

There was also a new sinkhole that formed in Ohio about 2 months ago that is related to the New Madrid fault. Memphis and parts of Arkansas close to Memphis had a 3.8 mag earthquake around the same time, I think it was sometime in December. The fault is due for a big quake. Memphis will be leveled. Bye bye to the gorgeous homes overlooking the river, bye bye to downtown. It's not comparable to the "boogeyman" because this is a very real threat. When the 1811-1812 quakes occurred, the danger zone was very, very sparsely populated. Today though, it would be devastating because it is so much more densely inhabited. The 1811 quake was so intense that it caused sections of land in Tennessee to end up across the Mississippi river. That is why, if you look at a map, the MS River is not the border between TN and AR. There are small sections of TN that are now across the river because the river changed course due to that quake. It is going to be devastating and it's not a matter of if, but when. I'm not trying to scare anybody, but when it comes to something like this people need to be worried.

yesI think you're quite correct, it's a matter of when not if, but it doesn't mattr to Memphis/MS morons, they even built a relatively newer structure, the Morgan Keegan building without sufficient and up to date seismic construction compared to other cities ! plus there has been no retrofitting of anything -

How about that crappy Pyramid ? you think they shold have done something about the dangers before putting the god awful BASS PRO SHOPS in there ?? lol

Yes, it's a dumb city !(btw there is a website called smartcitymemphis which is run by a FELON who used to work for the city ! it's ironic and crazy to be so dumb, but have a website called 'smart' anything ! LOL

Memphis sucks the worst

In 1995 it was projected within 50 years. It could be any minute now. It's a ticking time bomb just like the yellowstone supervolcano

the eventuality has been ignored by builders and developers even downtown close to the river - and the code has not been updated to reflect the obvious danger
yeah

Downtown will be flattened. And more than likely underwater too, possibly permanently, as will mud island. People want to ignore the facts, and say that people like us who know the true seriousness of this threat are "crazy paranoid nuts" but they are just being blind idiots. They will see sooner or later. Bass pro is putting all that money into the pyramid but when the quake is all said and done it will be rubble at the bottom of the mississippi.

Yesterday countless others and myself in more than a 100 mile radius witnessed the sounds of plates shifting. People tried to say it was cannons, tannerite and countless other things. People's houses doesn't shake nor do you hear the loud,deep noises of the earth moving beneath you if it was tannerite or cannons. It was actually amazing to witness such an event. I had been told by people they had heard the noises and felt the tremors in the past but I was like" yeah right" until last night it caught me by surprise. One day it will make headlines. It's powerful and its more than huge so be ready!!! Amen!!

The same thing occurred in wisconsin too. They actually had it all over the news. Booms from underground have been heard in colorado too. Something is coming that's for sure.
