All the experts agree it is not whether or not it will, but when, and how bad it will be! The events of December 1811 through February 1812 was 2 to 3 times larger than the Alaska event in 1964 and 10 times larger than the 1906 San Francisco event. Estimates the 1800 quakes were 7.2-8.1 over, there were 5 quakes over 8 in 3 months.
The geographic coverage was over 600,000 sq kilometers and effect felt over 5 million. Currently Cairo Illinois to Memphis to Chickasaw Bluff Tennessee with lighter damage as distant as Cincinnati and St.Louis. Only a few lives were lost, but population is estimated at several hundred. Same population area totals now exceed 20 million.
Typical earthquake forecast seem not to apply to this area, although it is considered to be one of three most at risks areas in the US due to the lack of normal ground chatter. PROBABILITY OF 7.5-8.0 WITHIN 50 YEARS 7 TO 10% PROBABILITY OF A 6.0 OR LARGER 25-40% SCIENTIST S ESTIMATE 90%
The Governor of the Missouri Territories asked for Federal Assistance and is considered the first example of disaster relief.

KANSAS SEARCH AND RESCUE TASK FORCE FORMING INCIDENT MANAGEMENT TEAMS FORMING MILITARY-CIVILIAN INTERFACE
THE DIFFICULTIES OF ROUTING, MAINTENANCE, SUSTAINMENT IN AREAS WITH NOTHING COMPOUND DEPLOYMENTS NO ROADS, COMMS, WATER, FOOD, FUEL, EVACUEES MAKE NON SUSTAINABLE TASK FORCES A BURDEN KS/MO WILL GET A BULK OD EVACUEES OVER A PERIOD OF DAYS USING OUR RESOURCES
LIGHTWEIGHT TRUSS CONSTRUCTION WILL EXPAND EXPECTED DAMAGE AREAS, UNKNOWN SFFECTS MILES FROM THE EVENT AREA KANSAS PLANS TO FORM REQUESTED TEAMS BASED ON THE MISSION REQUEST AND BE SELF SUSTAINABLE, A MIX OF LOCAL, STATE, PRIVATE, AND MILITARY ASSESTS.
CONTINUE TO SUPPORT KANSAS SAR COOPERATE WITH REQUEST FOR RESOURCE TYPING AND CREDENTIALS INVENTORIES DO NOT SELF DEPLOY
