    Interesting geological information

    At work, I had to fill out a survey of disaster preparedness - for earthquakes. Out of that, I got a link to a site with the prevalence of earthquakes by state:

    Top Earthquake States

    Kind of neat to see that Iowa is one of about 5 states that don't get earthquakes.

    We just get shaking from the new madrid fault line in Missouri.

    Re: Interesting geological information

    we make up for it in disasters with our number of cyclones every year.....

    there are actually a couple of faults underlying eastern Iowa, but obviously no movement in modern times.


    I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.
