There is a diffuse cluster of epicenters in the northwestern quadrant of the state, the quadrant closest to the NMSZ.
Due to the size of the area affected by the 1811-1812 earthquakes, the presence of the NMSZ has become a major concern for the central continental region including northwest Mississippi.
It would not be appropriate to modify this component of the NMSZ model based on only one recent study, particularly when the study results contradict paleoseismic evidence and the results of analyses based on historical seismology.
