It seems just like yesterday…

1811: (and 1812): The infamous and monstrous New Madrid Earthquakes strike the Mississippi Valley in the vicinity of Missouri’s Boot-Heal region. Seismologists say that eight of the many quakes in the series were “8” on the Richter Scale. One, they believe was a gigantic 8.8. If the Madrid Quakes return in modern times the results would be disastrous almost beyond belief.
