Press Dossiers

Bicentenary of the New Madrid earthquake

One of the severest earthquakes ever to hit North America occurred 200 years ago. And it did not happen in California, but in the US Midwest. This earthquake series resembled the event in Christchurch, New Zealand in February 2011; such earth tremors are rare, but they are violent and occur in series.
