The Bandit, there is a fault line there and It's scary to think of the damage a 9.0 quake could cause in that area.
These catastrophic earthquakes occurred during a three-month period in December 1811 and early 1812. They caused changes in the course of the Mississippi River, which rolled backwards temporarily, and were felt as far away as New York City and Boston, Massachusetts, where churchbells rang. Large areas sank into the earth, fissures opened, lakes permanently drained and new lakes were formed, the course of the Mississippi River was changed, and forests were destroyed over an area of 150,000 acres.
All three major quakes are generally believed to have exceeded 8.0 on the Richter Scale, and some seismologists believe the largest was 9.0 or larger.

incredible how destructive an earthquake can be.
UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - The tsunami that crashed into coastlines across southern Asia is likely to present the United Nations with its biggest and costliest relief effort, the U.N. emergency relief coordinator said on Monday.
It will take "many billions of dollars" and a number of years to bury the dead, battle disease and recover from the wall of water that has killed more than 23,000 people, said Jan Egeland, who heads the U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.
While the deadly wave on Sunday may not have been the largest ever recorded, it probably will have the biggest impact of any natural disaster in the five decades that the United Nations has been coordinating the global response to such disasters because it struck so many heavily populated areas, Egeland told reporters.

A reasonable assumption, sealed07, and one easily dismissed by those more interested in counting the rising death toll,
