But the New Madrid fault has been a bit rumbly the last week or so

In other words: no DICE.

Isn't that the proper response?

Yep no DICE but stay prepared for it. Since it is a true risk however I will move this topic to CP&P to continue the discussion of how to prepare if and when this fault has a major issue.

I can't remember how far west it caused problems. Other than supply chain issues, do I need to worry in west Texas?

Things to research when it's not past my bedtime.

Nothing much to worry about; a bit of Texas is in the "you might notice" zone, but that's about it.

Unless there's something like a St Helens or greater eruption, but I don't think that's enough of a concern to worry about.

Ummmm....I am seeing some other thoughts. Well, at least for those in Missouri and Tennessee. And probably for surrounding states.

And the New Madrid Fault seems a lot more likely than a Zombie Apocalypse.

Well, of course Missouri and Tennessee (as well as Arkansas, Mississippi, Kentucky, Illinoi, Indiana, and Ohio) are concerned; they're on top of the fault.

Texas, at it's closest point, is several hundred miles away. We'll feel fractions of a percent of whatever energy is felt at the epicenter. Poke around at the USGS seismic hazard maps; Texas is basically in nil threat.
