I am wondering if this may be a foretaste of a New Madrid slippage. A 6 o 7 in that faukt line would be massively damaging since the line runs through major metro areas which have tall buildings built on the fault line since the last big shake there. Reelfoot lake was created the last time that fault slipped significantly and the Mississippi ran ‘backwards’ for a time.
i was wondering about that myself after i saw the Miss one this morning? This is at least 3 miles short (depth) of the usual quakes in this fault. This wasn’t even a mile deep and it’s not along the immediate New Madrid (western Kentucky). Odd. (but what do i know as a lover of science but no expert?)
if this indicates anything with the NM fault, well it could make all other disasters look pale in comparison from what I have read or heard from experts!
Fear not...... I’m a FEMA trained New Madrid earthquake response damage assessor. They trained us in East Tennessee thinking the west would be out of action.
My training was many years ago and I doubt if they remember me.
