    That's why live in Kansas, folks. We only have to deal with high winds, tornados, occasional bad winter storms and riots when sports teams win big games. Sure your house might get sucked up and your car could be overturned and painted purple but the damn ground stays put.

    That was a long time ago, in a galaxy far far away. The empire will rise again.

    Tornadoes don't suck ground up? [​IMG] Oh, and the largest earthquake in US History occurred in the midwest, New Madrid, MO, it rang church bells in Boston, caused waves to be seen in the ground like the ocean and made the Mississippi River run upstream for weeks.

    I was on the road, heading up to watch my team be on those Raiders, at the time of the quake. A buddy and I were very close to the quake. We were across the way, on the 5 freeway, and didn't feel a thing. The only reason that we knew there was a quake was because my buddy was on the phone (His T730 [​IMG] , no problems either )with his girl and she started freakin out, along with her co-workers. LOL

    No pictures exist, it was in December of 1811, no cameras yet [​IMG] Here's a link to info about it though-

    New Madrid, MO Earthquake of 1811

    Here's a quote from the page, pretty interesting

    ""Actually, the 1811-1812 earthquake was merely a continuation in a series which included rumblings in 1699, 1776, 1779, 1792, 1795, and 1804. These predecessor quakes were quite possibly even stronger; and some of the changes later credited to the New Madrid Quake probably came earlier. In time, the quake was credited with causing the Mississippi River to flow backward, with creating the "Sunk Lands" in the Saint Francis River Valley, in raising Crowley's Ridge, and creating Reelfoot Lake in Tennessee.

    "If another quake of the magnitude of the New Madrid Quake of 1811 should hit the region, it would be the worst natural disaster in American history. Especially vulnerable are buildings of brick and concrete. Almost all of downtown Memphis would fall. The highways, railways and interstate systems would be shattered and bridges destroyed. Massive gas line ruptures would threaten life and property. If the Mississippi River were already near flood stage, the destruction of levees could result in the flooding of perhaps a quarter of the state (of Arkansas). Overall the loss of life could run into the hundreds of thousands. "

    This fault will move again, and with the amount of population there now, it will be alot worse. Also, areas like New York, Salt Lake City, Jackson, WY, Seattle and Portland, and Boston are also long overdue for major quakes. In fact, Idaho is the most active earthquake state after CA (the Yellowstone area is nearby, and is in constant commotion against the Snake River Plain), also, one of the largest quakes in history occurred in Alaska, CA, OR, WA and Alaska, along with Japan are part of the "ring of fire" that lines the Pacific Ocean's perimiters.
