Responses to Iben Browning’s Prediction of a 1990 New Madrid, Missouri, Earthquake
William Spence. Iben Browning predicted that a major earthquake would strike the region of New Madrid, MO, on or about Dec. 3, 1990. Although nearly all seismologists rejected Browning’s prediction, & Browning had no qualifications in seismology, his prediction was so well publicized that public agitation rose to serious levels. This report tells how this earthquake prediction became credible to many members of the media, emergency preparedness personnel, & the general public, even though most scientists warned against its validity. The report relies on print sources, although major roles also were played by television & radio. Appendixes include many press clippings, some of Browning’s work, & other material pertaining to this episode. Illustrated.
