THE COMING QUAKE: It's called the NEW MADRID fault line, and it is 6 times larger than the San Andreas fault in California, and covers 7 states. In 1811, an earthquake so powerful occurred there that people still talk about it today. They say the one that's coming next could split the United States in half. #NewMadrid #Earthquakes #Prophecy http://www.nowtheendbegins.com/blog/?p=31250
"From the air, the Wasatch fault zone, on the edge of Salt Lake City, shows many features indicative of recent earthquakes. These features include a straight and abrupt mountain front, faceted spurs, and wineglass canyons." Caption from link
The New Madrid fault system contains two types of faults, a strike slip segment oriented to the northeast, running from Marked Tree, AR to Caruthersville, MO, and a northwest trending reverse fault that rests below the New Madrid region. Material on the northwest side of the strike-slip fault moves northeast, and up the ramp. --St. Louis U.
