Quake to be featured on Dateline

Friday, May 19, 2006

NEW MADRID - A nationally televised show will include a segment on New Madrid and the 1811-12 earthquake.

Dateline NBC is scheduled to present a program on earthquakes at 6 p.m. Sunday locally on its NBC affiliates.

A portion of the show was taped May 3 at the New Madrid Historical Museum and along the town's riverfront. Two cameramen and the show's producer, Jason Samuels, oversaw the local production which featured New Madrid resident Lynn Bock who spoke about the New Madrid fault line.

Also the production crew visited the Earthquake Center in Memphis.
