Especially for Jpapa and Click -

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Madrid_earthquake

cheeky excerpt -

The 1811–1812 New Madrid earthquakes /nuː ˈmædrɨd/ were an intense intraplate earthquake series beginning with an initial pair of very large earthquakes on December 16, 1811. These earthquakes remain the most powerful earthquakes to hit the eastern United States in recorded history.[1] These events, as well as the seismic zone of their occurrence, were named for the Mississippi River town of New Madrid, then part of the Louisiana Territory, now within Missouri.
There are estimates that the earthquakes were felt strongly over roughly 130,000 square kilometers (50,000 sq mi), and moderately across nearly 3 million square kilometers (1 million square miles). The historic 1906 San Francisco earthquake, by comparison, was felt moderately over roughly 16,000 km2 (6,200 sq mi).

I know this was meant for Jpapa and Click, but...

In terms of earthquakes, we're probably safer out here because we're used to them!

So true ! Where I live now have quakes frequently and I now live just a few miles from San Andreas Fault with numerous faults running closer.
I don't even wake up if bed gives a shake. Only if it actually MOVES !

These earthquakes remain the most powerful earthquakes to hit the eastern United States in recorded history.

Until an earthquake stops a World Series, it's hardly worth mentioning.

There are estimates that the earthquakes were felt strongly over roughly 130,000 square kilometers (50,000 sq mi), and moderately across nearly 3 million square kilometers (1 million square miles). The historic 1906 San Francisco earthquake, by comparison, was felt moderately over roughly 16,000 km2 (6,200 sq mi).

The New Madrid was only felt over such great distance because, at the time, there was nuthin' in the area to absorb the shock. The shock of the 1906 quake was stopped cold by Oakland.

Bummer. If only Oakland hadn't stopped it. The whole US should feel the might of the San Andreas Fault!
