Imagine the New Madrid as the center of a "seam" between two halves of the
eastern North American plate, both of them matched up with the western half
as one piece at approximately the Missisippi.
The thing is, there's supposedly a lot of inclination now for the two eastern halves
to rotate like a couple of big toothless gears, upper counterclockwise-- and the
lower in the opposite direction and subsequently away from the western.
If the liquefaction of the two plates "glue" keeps up we'll get the Edgar Cayce
anchovie treatment in the breadbasket, with the Gulf of Mexico grabbing the low
ground created. If you've got a map and we're lucky in Illinois, Joliet could become
beachfront property. Then Club Fed gets a brand new swimming pool too YAYYyy
Let us pray... I still wonder what a plate shift would do to the E.Seaboard. hooo

I just checked, in the past 7 days we have had 99 earthquakes over 5.0 worldwide according to USGS:
If you look at 4.0 magnitude, and above it's over 200!
In the last 3 days alone there have been 29 over 5.0 magnitude!
Of particular interest is the depth category, if you look at 7 miles or shallower 50% of all the 5.0 earthquakes are right between 6 and 7 miles!!!! THIS, I believe, is VERY significant!
