Quake could shake things up in Delta
There is a 25-40 percent probability of a damaging earthquake occurring in the central U.S. within the next 50 years, scientists say. And Tunica is one of 19 Mississippi counties expected to be most impacted by future New Madrid Seismic Zone earthquakes, according to a 2009 analysis by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
According to the U.S. Geological Survey, “There is broad agreement in the scientific community that a continuing concern exists for a major destructive earthquake in the region,” despite reports that the New Madrid seismic zone may be shutting down.
In light of this conclusion, the Central U.S. Earthquake Consortium in Memphis is stepping up public awareness and preparedness, in conjunction with Mississippi Emergency Management and other states.
