Real News

Here’s some news that will get our attention. I’ve missed this on the local stations but maybe they had it. I didn’t see much this evening.

“New Data Confirms Strong Earthquake Risk to Central U.S.”

In a nutshell, scientists say strain is building on the New Madrid Fault, contrary to what a 1990s study claimed. The odds of another 8.0 earthquake (same as the 1812 that made the Mississippi River flow backward) in the next 50 years are between 7 and 10 percent.

They also say a 6 magnitude quake has a 90% chance of hitting in the next 50 years.
