According to geologists the Midwest is due for a big earthquake every 200 or so years.
Jared Rowcliffe is the Director of Shelby County Emergency Management Agency. He says the good news is the state is very away of the earthquake possibility and has been training should such a day occur.
Should an earthquake of that magnitude happen Christian County residents could expect some damage but it would be minimal. Rowcliffe says the county is in a perfect spot to be a first station for help for the injured.
Rowcliffe appeared as a guest on the NewsTalk WTIM Morning Show live from our downtown Shelbyville studios.
