Earthquakes in Minnesota
Abstract: Few natural phenomena attract as much public attention as earthquakes. Seldom does a month go by that we do not hear of a destructive earthquake somewhere in the world. Events like the October 17, 1989 event near San Francisco [Lorna Prieta earthquake] and the January 17, 1994 event near Los Angeles [Northridge earthquake] are grim reminders that parts of the United States are at risk from these terrible natural hazards. Even in the so-called stable interior of the United States, a strong public interest exists in earthquakes, as does some concern about the potential of destructive earth- quakes in the Midwest.
