Alert! Unusual New Madrid Earthquake Activity

In the last 30 days there have been 6 earthquakes magnitude 2.5+ in the New Madrid Fault Zone.
In the last YEAR there have only been approximately 19 such quakes.
Roughly put, the last 30 days by themselves have seen half as many earthquakes as the entire year before.

None of these quakes have set off our early warning earthquake sensor (see video below) which can give up to two minutes warning for the massive M8-9 earthquake risk Missouri (and the entire east coast) faces.

Whether or not this situation amounts to anything is difficult to say, but it is best to be prepared; especially given that February has been designated earthquake month by the state of Missouri. and the USGS has just stated that the threat for the New Madrid Fault is very much alive.




  1. Where do you get the first kind you mentioned? I have a quake alarm like the white one. Never could get it set, so I just took it down.

    1. You can find them on Ebay and Amazon, the model number is PGS047
