From the USGS web site:
"East of the Rockies, an earthquake can be felt over an area as much as ten times larger than a similar magnitude earthquake on the west coast."

From what I have learned, the New Madrid Fault in the Missouri area along the Mississippi River is what really has scientists concerned.

A quake there could really be the Big One.

Last week we read about a little bit of activity off the Oregon coast near Newport. A reported 600 tremors had been doing there thing in the last 10 days. I think that where you are this might also be of some interest. thanks again. One question we are new to the forum and want to know how you put the U.S. map of states that you have traveled to on your posting. Safe and new adventures to all.

Pretty timely post, Ding-A-Ling! I live in Central Illinois, and our windows have been rattling, since 4:37 AM, this morning.
This the a "gift" from the New Madrid fault. The first quake was a 5.2, centered around West Salem, Ill.The second was a 4.2.

Wow. I need this guy's job. Dude is willing to lay odds that something that has happened "more than a half dozen" times in the past thirty years is going to happen again within the next thirty. I think that is about as gutsy as me saying "I predict that I will be putting diesel in my tank within the next month".

I need to get into the earthquake forecasting business.

I was in LA when the 6.7 hit in '87. I FREAKED out. All the natives thought I was crazy. But it was just too much for me. We left CA in two months. I've never regretted that move. If you can't stand the heat (or the shakin') get out of the area. All areas have threats - tornadoes, hurricanes, blizzards. You have to pick what you think you can deal with. I can know a hurricane is coming and prepare. I can never really know when that earthquake is going to hit. And I can't take that.

I have lived all over the country and each area has is own perils. For example, Arizona has extreme heat part of the year, Florida has hurricanes, Iowa has snow drifts up to your belt and Calif has the shakes.

Being RVers, BW & I live the winters in AZ and the summers in the northlands.

Ain't it grand.

We lived in Granada Hills when the Northridge quake hit. We had a lot of damage as we were very near (blocks away) from where the energy came to the surface.

I would rather have a quake than a hurricane. See, all your stuff still gets broken but in an earthquake you know where it is. I never had to look miles away in a neighbors' tree for anything.

Over here it's called "urban renewal". Hurricanes do give you plenty of time to duck or get gone.

Huh -- duck or get gone -- hope that catches on further west along the Gulf Coast.

There were two 5+ earthquakes in northern California when I was there in late May/early June of this year. I was there for a relatively large one in 1980. I don't like them - and it saddens me - because if there's anywhere I would like to settle down, it would be on the Oregon or northern California coast. Tsunamis scare the heck out of me . . .so I don't plan to be trying to paddle the RV in case of an earthquake. It may not happen in my lifetime - or it may. But I'm not a gambler . . . .
