New Madrid fault is susceptible of to give us a surprise anytime certainly, and I feel the way this could happen is very consistent with your
description, what ever happen on the Mississippi basin will be via a swarm preceding it, I would not expect a drastic motion emerging without give at
least a week of previous alert of tremors.
We have had a long some weeks a kind of swarm in that area too, but the critical point is when we start to experience a clear sequence of quakes in
increasing trend above magnitude 3.
That area of the country could experience a double natural disaster, even under a quake of lesser scale than a Megaquake, from one side it would be
side damages through seismic activity, from other the change of path of rivers, at least for some days, after a quake that may cause floods in areas
that are right now Not so far from the riverbeds.
Whoever is located at Not more than 20 miles of the current riverbeds of the Mississippi, Ohio and the Missouri, as well as, from the reelfoot lake,
must be prepared for rapid evacuation in case of earthquake in a very similar way that the pacific coast of t he country is rehearsing drills to
prevent tsunamis devastation.
Rivers may drastically change path in these kind of events and the closer a city, a town or a village is to them is the higher the risk to be in the
middle of flood coming after seismic activity.
Please have at hand information from various possible evacuations paths since highways or bridges can collapse specially since they are not designed
with the same standards than in other regions that are considered more seismic as California for instance.
