T.G.I.F.... "To Grafton It's Friday"

 

 

October 15, 2020 Earthquake Drill

Mississippi, Meramec And Missouri River Floodplains........

 

The Illinois Emergency Management Agency is calling on residents to participate in the "Great Central U.S. ShakeOut", which is a wide-ranging earthquake drill scheduled for October 15th.

 

The St. Louis Metro Region is located near two fault lines, one of which is the New Madrid Fault, which produced the largest earthquakes in the Continental U.S. in 1811 and 1812.  One of those quakes caused the Mississippi River to briefly flow backwards.

 

According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the region known as the American Bottoms, reaching from Alton to Monroe County and the majority of St. Charles County between the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers are more vulnerable to earthquakes due to the floodplains and soft sediments........
