I am no expert
I know very very little about EQ's
Puterman or TrueAmerican should answer your question
I'll message them
but with what I do know...
Water is very very very heavy,
with all that weight resting on that fault line...
it can't be good
But also a valid point, its not the first time this area has flooded...
But then again... this is a historical flood...
But to try to answer your question,
I am off to send messages to someone who can possibly give an educated answer
