Earthquakes & The New Madrid Seismic Zone is the fourth installment in
a series of LPACTV video presentations on the imminent threat of earthquakes and like forces
facing the United States. Here, we move far from the well-known tectonic faults of the West
Coast, to an area of the Mississippi River basin known as the New Madrid Seismic Zone, where
powerful earthquakes have wreaked havoc in the past. Today, the region is dangerously
unprepared for such a scenario.
