NEW MADRID, Mo. (AP) -- No damage is reported, but a small earthquake centered in southeast Missouri has rumbled parts of four states.
The magnitude 3.1 quake happened at 5:38 a.m. Friday along the New Madrid fault line and was centered about nine miles south of New Madrid, Mo., not far from the Tennessee and Kentucky state lines. The quake was also felt in Arkansas.

If I remember right, the early 1800s quake is thought to have been an approx. 8.5 quake. Strong enough to reverse the course of the Mississippi river.
If the New Madrid really lets go, you're talking about massive devastation in the middle west.
