I've been told that I shouldn't concern myself about what would happen if the New Madrid Fault in Missouri finally lets go with the dreaded major quake seismologists say is inevitable because there's nothing we can do to stop it. Perhaps, but I also think a new simulation showing what that event would be like is helpful in preparation.

It was a YouTube channel called "Earthquake Sim" that showed a somewhat real time 7.7 magnitude earthquake along the New Madrid Seismic Zone in Missouri would look like.
