It's your Fault!: Commemorating the 200th Anniversary of the New Madrid Earthquakes
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Two hundred years ago, a series of earthquakes rocked southeastern Missouri and a large portion of the southern United States. Conference speakers explored what Missouri was like in 1811, what occurred during the earthquakes, various theories about whether earthquakes of that magnitude will happen again, and, if they do, whether Missouri is ready. A reader's theatre presented eyewitness accounts of the 1811 - 1812 quakes and their aftermath.
