    just an extension of the New Madrid fault zone..........other than being previously unmapped its not really that big of news, some major quakes happened in that area in the 1800's......will happen again.......bad thing is, when that fault zone lets loose it usually lets loose big.........

    Didn't that earthquake make buildings sink? Or am I thinking or somewhere else? Well, I now it was because they filled in places that once was filled with water so they could build on it and liquidizes if it is shaken.

    I think Mexico city is the same thing but, I think I saw a documentary on this fault on national geographic. I not sure but, isn't it in the process of becoming a fault because the North American plate is splitting? Lol, I know nothing about geography.

    Honestly, I have no idea. I just saw it and I just thought it was something serious.

    its basically a weak spot in the middle of the plate at the moment......im guessing its the start of the North American Plate splitting apart but who knows, likely not know for sure or see anything but quakes out of it through our great great great great great great great and so on grand childrens lives......the spreading in the mid Atlantic is pushing us against the Pacific plate and when things get hung up and dont move where stuff is supposed to that New Madrid area buckles a bit....
