Small Earthquakes on the New Madrid Spark Fears of Coming “Big One”!




Posted on April 6, 2013 by END TIME HEADLINES


PEMISCOT COUNTY, MO.
– On shaky ground. Two tremors in the New Madrid Seismic Zone this week
have people wondering if a big earthquake could be coming. The two are
considered minor. No damage has been reported from either. Thursday
night’s quake struck around 7:27 local time. It was centered about six
miles northeast of Caruthersville, Missouri and measured a 2.7 on the
Richter Scale. Tuesday night a similar quake hit near Portageville,
Missouri. The U.S. Geological Survey considers the New Madrid Seismic
Zone the most active in North America east of the Rockies. But it’s
been about 100 years since a major earthquake hit this area. Still, the
two recent quakes are leaving behind some rattled nerves. The only
thing getting shaken Friday in Caruthersville, Missouri is the salad at
Grandad’s Deli. ”It’s a scary thought,” said Sharon Russell,
owner. Russell said they were busy Thursday night and didn’t notice the
tremor. ”We were kind of rocking in this little place last night, so we
didn’t feel it,” she said. But now, the week’s two tremors are the talk
of the town. Alexis Avis shook with the first. ”The first one I felt, I
was in bed. And I thought I could tell it was an earthquake,” she
said. Avis said the two so close together put her on alert. ”New Madrid
is always putting out a lot of small ones,” said Dr. James Conder,
Assistant Professor of Geology at SIU-Carbondale. Dr. Conder believes
there’s really no reason for alarm but said it’s natural for people to
wonder. ”It really should spark some curiosity,” he said. Dr. Conder
said some evidence shows the New Madrid may be running out of energy,
and the recent quakes are its last breaths. But that’s just a theory. He
warns a larger one could hit at any time. If it does, the damage
region-wide could be catastrophic. ”We have very thick soils that shake
like Jello, everything would get bounced around a lot,” said
Conder. That’s a circumstance Sharon Russell doesn’t want to
consider. ”How big does it have to be before you really feel the effects
of it?” said Russell. Professor Conder said researchers would become
concerned if the frequency and intensity of those quakes increases in
months and years to come. WPSD
