Greenbrier fault zone is only capable of a 6.0, however in this region it would be catastrophic.

Should Illinois Be Worried About Its Nuclear Power Plants?

Chicago - A lot of people are wondering, and worrying, about nuclear power plants and earthquakes after the events in Japan over the weekend.

Illinois has more nuclear power reactors with eleven than any other state, and Illiniois lies inside the New Madrid Earthquake Zone.

But Dr. Jeff Terry, a nuclear expert at the Illinois Institute of Technology, said he's confident that the state's reactors can withstand a sizeable jolt.

"We've tried to build in every safeguard you possibly could to the reactors, " he said. "Can you design them to take 9.9 earthqauke? No, it's unlikely we could design something to that anyway."

Greenbrier is in the New Madrid Seismic Zone...

It could set off something huge...

Or all of these may be a sure sign it actually is gearing up for something far bigger...

I have thought it was due to the fracking...But there was an emergency order put in to stop fracking, but the earthquakes are still going

Is Arkansas Ready for a Major Earthquake?


Is Arkansas ready for a major earthquake?

As nations scramble to Japan's aid after a magnitude 8.9 quake and following tsunami, emergency managers throughout the region are checking their earthquake plans.

David Maxwell, director of the Arkansas Department of Emergency Management, says their office has been in earthquake planning meetings and simulations all week.

We know it's going to happen again at some point,” Maxwell said. “We just don't know when.”

New Madrid Earthquakes 1811-1812

The first principal earthquake, M7.7, occurred at about 2:15 am (local time) in northeast Arkansas on December 16, 1811. The second principal shock, M7.5, occurred in Missouri on January 23, 1812, and the third, M7.7, on February 7, 1812, along the Reelfoot fault in Missouri and Tennessee. The earthquake ground shaking was not limited to these principal main shocks, as there is evidence for a fairly robust aftershock sequence. The first and largest aftershock occurred on December 16, 1811 at about 7:15 am. At least three other large aftershocks are inferred from historical accounts on December 16 and 17. These three events are believed to range between M6.0 and 6.5 in size and to be located in Arkansas and Missouri. This would make a total of seven earthquakes of magnitude M6.0-7.7 occurring in the period December 16, 1811 through February 7, 1812. In total, Otto Nuttli reported more than 200 moderate to large aftershocks in the New Madrid region between December 16, 1811, and March 15, 1812: ten of these were greater than about 6.0; about one hundred were between M5.0 and 5.9; and eighty-nine were in the magnitude 4 range. Nuttli also noted that about eighteen hundred earthquakes of about M3.0 to 4.0 during the same period.

The New Madrid fault in the central United States is particularly dangerous. The fault is among the most active in the country, running from St. Louis to Memphis.

New Madrid Earthquake Caused River to Run 'Backward'

The New Madrid fault line is best known for some of the most violent earthquakes to ever hit the U.S: a series of four in 1811 and 1812. The quakes were estimated at magnitude 7.5 to 8.0, so strong the Mississippi River reportedly flowed backward. Damage occurred as far away as Washington, D.C., and Charleston, S.C.

Some New Madrid, Mo., residents saw large cracks open in the ground. The crew of a steamboat mooring overnight along a Mississippi River island reportedly awoke to find the island had disappeared below the water.
