"There’s this missing component in sea level rise that can't be accounted for,” Raymond said.
The discrepancy is miniscule: 1 millimeter per year, and Raymond said it is speculated that this 1 millimeter could be coming from the melting of Antarctic ice. Millimeters are what Donnellan will look at also. The tectonic movement she is studying is barely detectable -- so small that GPS technology was not advanced enough to detect it until within the last few years.
“Marie Byrd is moving away from from Ross Island essentially,” Donnellan said. “But how fast that’s occurring nobody knows."

Plus, a lot of freight moves across the Mississippi. If the bridges go, everyone is going to suffer, not just Arkansas. This could virtually split the United States and no freight would be moving from one side to another.
Do you really think it would ever get that bad? I mean, I just don't want to believe an earthquake could ever do that much damage that it would flood two states, parts of other states, and basically split the United States down the middle.
The information presented in this report has been developed to support the Catastrophic Earthquake Planning Scenario workshops held by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Four FEMA Regions (Regions IV, V, VI and VII) were involved in the New Madrid Seismic Zone (NMSZ) scenario workshops. The four FEMA Regions include eight states, namely Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas and Missouri.
The results indicate that Tennessee, Arkansas, and Missouri are most severely impacted. Illinois and Kentucky are also impacted, though not as severely as the previous three states. Nearly 715,000 buildings are damaged in the eight-state study region. About 42,000 search and rescue personnel working in 1,500 teams are required to respond to the earthquakes. Damage to critical infrastructure (essential facilities, transportation and utility lifelines) is substantial in the 140 impacted counties near the rupture zone, including 3,500 damaged bridges and nearly 425,000 breaks and leaks to both local and interstate pipelines. Approximately 2.6 million households are without power after the earthquake. Nearly 86,000 injuries and fatalities result from damage to infrastructure. Nearly 130 hospitals are damaged and most are located in the impacted counties near the rupture zone. There is extensive damage and substantial travel delays in both Memphis, Tennessee, and St. Louis, Missouri, thus hampering search and rescue as well as evacuation. Moreover roughly 15 major bridges are unusable. Three days after the earthquake, 7.2 million people are still displaced and 2 million people seek temporary shelter. Direct economic losses for the eight states total nearly $300 billion, while indirect losses may be at least twice this amount.

They have graphs and stuff that are current with stations and live data!
Wish I could display them.
