What do you think will happen to the Midwest if the New Madrid Fault does the earthquake thing?

Question by NANCY K: What do you think will happen to the Midwest if the New Madrid Fault does the earthquake thing?
I have read stuff about what happened in 1811 till 1812, and it wasn’t just one big quake, it was over and over, almost daily!! It sounds like the San Andreas fault would be a tea party compared to going through what happened to them. There just wasn’t the dense population to react to it like there was in San Francisco, etc. It was in Missouri and rang church bells in Boston! It created Realfoot Lake. What would happen now ?

Forget about that stuff. There’s bigger stuff in the offing that has anything to do with George Bush, war, or whatever. And the whole planet is watching.

    i have read about what you’re talking about and most people don’t even believe it’s possible however i think that when it happens it will be bad.

    1 million dead or injured and Trillions of dollars in damage. It will make Katrina look like a firecracker 🙁

    THe big problem is that the midwest has no “Earth Quake” building code. So, most of their buildings are going to collapse and kill a whole bunch of people. Also, the gas and water lines are not “Earthquake” resistant so it will be 1906 all over again only with far more people involved.
