This Day In History

Jan 23 1812

A huge 7.8 magnitude earthquake shakes New Madrid, Missouri. People think that earthqakes strike the West Coast, but the New Madrid series of quakes are some of the largest in America's history.

hopefully history won't repeat itself any time soon, but some folks around my parts say we're overdue for the New Madrid to shake again...

_The Rift_ by Walter Jon Williams, has the New Madrid going off at 8.9 on the richter scale...

If you like disaster novels, it's a good one.
