Rural Missouri - January 2012 - (Page 24)

Shake it up In the December 2011 Rural Missouri article, “A Great Rumbling,” we told the story of the 1811-1812 New Madrid Earthquakes and the uniqueness of the Bootheel region. The southeast corner of the ShowMe State is still seismically active and the threat of future catastrophic quakes is still possible. To raise awareness about earthquakes and to properly prepare in case of emergency, state officials are asking Missourians to participate in the Great Central U.S. ShakeOut, a drill that teaches the “Drop, Cover and Hold On” protective actions during an earthquake. To promote the ShakeOut, the State Emergency Management Agency and the Missouri Seismic Safety Commission are sponsoring the “Show-Me ShakeOut” poster contest. Third-, fourth- and fifth-grade students across the state are invited to create a classroom poster promoting the ShakeOut and earthquake safety. Winners will receive $50 cash cards and emergency first-aid kits for their classrooms. The winning entries Here we go again Last year, southeast Missouri witnessed historic flooding that has had lasting effects on the landscape. Unfortunately, it looks like Mother Nature is ready for round two. A significant risk of possible flooding caused by the La Niña weather pattern has prompted the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to issue a warning to residents in the Birds Point-New Madrid Floodway. During a La Niña year, winter temperatures are warmer than normal in the Southeast and cooler than normal in the Northwest. This creates the likelihood of abovenormal precipitation in spring. What brings concern is the crevasse that was created following the blowing of the Birds Point levee in May 2011. Reconstruction of the levee has begun, but due to lack of funding, the levee remains 10 feet below projected heights. For more information on La Niña, visit www.elnino.noaa.gov/lanina. html.

The exhibit is part of the Missouri Humanities Council’s Museum on Main Street program, sharing stories of how work became a central element in American culture and how the workforce has evolved. The free exhibit will make stops in Poplar Bluff, Fulton, Lawson and Savannah during 2012. Features will include multiple interpretive opportunities for visitors through large graphics, audio components and work clothing. Each host community also will feature local pieces related to their history of work.
