Synopsis
The great New Madrid earthquakes of 1811-12 were the greatest release of seismic energy in the history of the lower 48 states. More than 2000 shocks in five months, five of which were at least 8.0 on the Richter scale. Located along the central Mississippi River valley, these quakes were felt from the Rockies the Eastern Seaboard, from Canada to Mexico. The Mississippi River ran backwards. Five whole towns disappeared. Gapping crevasses open and people were swallowed alive. Hundreds of chimnies were thrown down in Cincinnati 400 miles from the epicenter while church bells rang in Boston, 1000 miles from the source. Every man, woman and child living the United States at the time felt these temblors. This book tells the personal stories, both heroic and tragic, and discusses in detail when it will happen again and how to be ready.
