The 1811-1812 New Madrid Earthquakes (centered in southeast Missouri) rank as some of North America's most catastrophic natural disasters. Stretching more than 160 miles, a system of earthquake faults lurks beneath the Mississippi River basin, loaded and ready to erupt. And it's happened before.

Used it for a geology course. A bit sensational at times but gets the message across about the threat of New Madrid earthquakes in the future.

DVD is well done but the video used is sometimes repeated. Quality is good and gives nice detail on earthquakes in the mid-west.
