If FEMA is supposed to protect people then why not tell people to prepare for an Earthquake.. so they can store food and water?

So they're moving into the so called "Hot" zone, right in the middle of where you don't wanna be? I find all this not on the up and up. Besides, the fault like one poster said above, is closing shop.

Scientists believe the New Madrid Fault is likely closing down. So the chance of a big quake in that area becomes less with time. At least from what I have read.
Here is a source on that info: source
Also they say in the article it is estimated to be on a 500 to 1000 year cycle and since the last major quake there was like 200 years ago, even if it isn't shutting down we may have a wait.
A team from Purdue and Northwestern universities analyzed the fault motion for eight years using global positioning system measurements and found that it is much less than expected given the 500- to 1,000-year repeat cycle for major earthquakes on that fault. The last large earthquakes in the New Madrid seismic zone were magnitude 7-7.5 events in 1811 and 1812.
New Madrid quake disaster was exactly 200 years ago.. ooooh the timing.
