Writer looks for earthquake like one that created Reelfoot

-A A +A

I was  reading the Sept. 14 edition of the Roane County News. The part that interested me was the article on “Earthquake danger still a question.”

The professor in the article does not know his facts. Between mid-December 1811 and mid-March 1812, Tennessee experienced the massive earthquake that created Reelfoot Lake.

I have no clue where he got his information, but he is wrong.

It was so bad some of the tremors was felt all the way to Quebec City, Canada.

I just wanted to voice this because Tennessee sits on a major fault line.
