New Madrid Seismic Zone Overview
This seminar will provide a general overview of the background, history and threats associated with the New Madrid Seismic Zone (NMSZ). In addition to providing details about the fault line and its catastrophic potential, this course will provide a summary of the guiding principles for responding to and recovery from a large-scale event along the NMSZ. These principles will assist in defining actions to be taken and stress the importance of a coordinated strategy for a rapid response for the delivery of critical resources in the event of a no-notice earthquake occurring within the NMSZ. This is for state agency officials with management responsibility for catastrophic disaster response to a New Madrid Seismic event, state and local government emergency managers, city and county administrators, community planners, and others with similar responsibilities.

This program will provide an overview of the Central United States Earthquake Consortium’s (CUSEC) research in the devastating potential for a destructive earthquake along the Mississippi Valley and highlight what some of the effects from future quakes may be.
