U.S. Earthquake Zones
By John Lounsbury
Here is an earthquake risk map of the U.S. from the Daily Mail:
The earthquake map of America: A seismic map shows that living far from the West Coast is no guarantee of safety from earthquakes. The colour-coordinated map shows a high probability of earthquakes along the West Coast – but it also shows an alarming patch of red at the ‘New Madrid fault line straddling Tennessee, Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois and Kentucky, in a dangerous patch that spreads outwards all the way to the South Carolina coast.
