Seismic Waves is a newsletter published by the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program. The topic in this edition of Seismic Waves is how New Madrid bicentennial boosts awareness and planning. "Anniversaries have the power to temporarily open minds to new thoughts linked to past events. The anniversaries of major earthquakes have become windows of opportunity for promoting awareness of seismic hazards and reduction of associated risks. Planning, which is the foundation of effective risk reduction, has become a prime focus of these observances."
