That's nothin'! We get little tremors all the way up the Appalachians on a regular basis. Since you seem to be a quake fan, have you seen this???

Just wait 'till this one cuts loose again! Scientists say it should happen by 2040. Fun, fun!

I grew up in St. Louis so I am quite aware of New Madrid. When it goes, it is going to clear some sinuses. Statistically, the New Madrid area and the area around several faults running into and near the San Francisco/Oakland?San Jose area (including San Andreas) are going to wreak havoc by 2040.
