Would very much appreciate your help with adviceSubmitted by Cirocco on Mon, 02/18/2013 - 03:36
I'd like to ask a small favor and get some educated feedback on where to purchase property that will be relatively protected from both the Yellowstone supervolcano and the New Madrid Seismic Zone. After viewing many maps of the projected damage from each of these events and taking into consideration the availability of local aquifers I was looking in the northern panhandle of Texas, but I'd prefer to get a wooded place bordering a natural forest up in the mountains. I don't believe Idaho would be safe from Yellowstone. Northern Arizona/southern New Mexico is a likely spot except that property there is outrageously expensive.
I did find a very nice property in the Missouri Ozarks, 40 fenced acres of mostly woods with a well, utility set-ups and a freshwater pond for $25K. While this isn't in the main NMSZ max destruction zone, it will be shaken quite a bit. Right now I live in St. Louis where the chances of surving a major NM event are pretty much zero.
Here's the site in Missouri - http://shopping.rollanet.org/category/398/Other-Areas/listin...
All feedback is welcome and I thank you kindly in advance for your assistance.
