Illinois is riddled with small fault lines including several up by Rockford ,IL..

the new madrid is hugh and abutts the walbash seismic area along that river and the ohio river. in 1811-12 a major quake hit the new madrid and altered the mississipi river and created temperary water falls. if it hit today the causilty list would include millions not to mention those made homeless. very few building or bridges are built to withstand a major earthquake. https://www.showme.net/~fkeller/quake/sitemap.htm

I remember watching our basement wall (block construction) doing a little dance during an earthquake near you in the 1960's; and I've heard from family about people freaking out and stocking up on supplies when the New Madrid gets some publicity. I hope those big rivers don't have their courses change by another "big one".

On a broader note, aren't there inconsistancies with the plate theory? Aren't there places where things are moving in the wrong direction?
