This documentary tells the story of the historic earthquakes of 1811 and 1812 that struck near the town of New Madrid, MO and proceeded to rattle a big part of the country for the next six months. The program also looks at the science behind earthquakes in the New Madrid Seismic Zone - why we have earthquakes in the Central U.S. and why they seem to be more powerful and destructive than quakes on the west coast of the country.
