Earthquake in North Carolina

Yesterday there was an earthquake in North Carolina that surprised a lot of people.

It reminded me that a lot of people don't realize that the Midwestern United States has significant earthquake potential.


The area of eastern Tennessee, which I think is the land of Nephi, and the Mississippi River valley where the Ohio River converges are both earthquake zones. This encompasses the areas I consider to be the land of Zarahemla and the land Bountiful.





Speaking of earthquakes, the other day I visited the construction zone on Temple Square in Salt Lake City.

They are reinforcing the temple for better earthquake protection.

If you're in Salt Lake, it's worth a visit.
