United States Earthquake Hazards Map.

March 21, 2013 United States Earthquake Hazards Map: The U.S. Map, above, reflects the potential for a large earthquake. The darker the color, the higher the hazard. For example, The San Andrea’s Fault, running through California; is shown in orange, red, brown and dark brown (dark brown carrying the highest risk of a significant earthquake). The area marked around the junctures of the states of Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee and Arkansas; mark the New Madrid fault. This area experienced several large earthquakes in 1811 and 1812. The dates, approximate locations and estimated magnitudes are as follows:
1. Dec. 16, 1811, north-east Arkansas, ~7.6 magnitude.
2. Jan. 23, 1812, New Madrid, Missouri; ~7.5 magnitude.
3. Feb. 7, 1812, Missouri/Tennessee border, ~7.7 magnitude (this was the biggest and most destructive of the 3).
According to the USGS (United States Geological Survey), the New Madrid fault system has been active for at least 4,500 years. This Earthquake Hazards map was prepared by the USGS.

I live in Southern Nevada, an area that has a medium potential for earthquakes. According to Edgar Cayce, the United States will be broken up in the west. Most of the western U.S. will be under water (east of western Colorado), except for the tall mountains in California, the Rocky Mountains, and some others; which will be Islands in the Pacific Ocean. Portions of western Colorado and Wyoming will be “beach front” property!

    I don’t understand the terminology, but your map with all the colors, and numbers helps me to understand the earthquake hazard potentials. Thank you, Mr. Master of Disaster. I Look forward to reading your next post.
