Looks like this area is becoming more and more active. Judging by all the threads popping up of a large quake happening soon within this month, This area might be the one.
( I really hope everyone is wrong and nothing but just small quakes happen as in 3.5 and down)

I'm not taking any chances and i am keeping my eyes and ears open for any activity.

I keep my eye on that region as well. Isn't that the fault that's more close to the surface than others? Meaning it can do more damage than a similar quake of the same mag.?

Large populations + The Big Muddy + 8.0 = ............not good.

Yes it is and yes it would cause lots of damage .

I am keeping my eyes and ears open as well. I practically live on top of this thing in SE Missouri. Haven't felt anything yet, but keep seeing the new activity popping up.

Just for you to ponder over,the average "behavior" of the NMSZ.

Interesting uptick in activity today. I slept horribly last night and kept waking up, couldn't figure out why. Hope she quiets down.

I live in NW Missouri but still fairly concerned with the New Madrid.

My husband works for Missouri's DOT. When he hired on he was told that if the New Madrid ever goes every employee, no matter what time it is or where they might be, are required to come in to work and head down to the area immediately.

Due to the harder, colder, drier and less fractured nature of the rocks in the earth’s crust in the central United States, earthquakes in this region shake and damage an area far greater than earthquakes in California and most other active seismic areas.

Glad I moved from that area...

I took a look at the USGS a second ago, and I was a bit surprised to see so many quakes within a few days in the New Madrid Seismic Zone.

A few in Oklahoma, Indiana, Missouri, and Texas....all we need is a significant size, maybe 4.0 or so in Arkansas and Memphis and it might be time to high tail it.....

Yes, the more shallow the quake the more damage. You also need to consider the amount of infrastructure that crosses the Mississippi at the points above and below the New Madrid region. A NME (New Madrid Event) will damage the powerlines that cross the river, creating havoc with the East Grid (East Coast to the Rockies, excluding Texas), not to mention the interstate system and gas lines. Such an event would have far reaching consequences for the entire US.
