Byron Dietrich,

Cape Girardeau, Missouri has a Lat. = 37 degrees,18 minutes, 21 seconds and
Long. = 89 degrees, 31 minutes, 05 seconds.

Check out the USGS site at http://geohazards.cr.usgs.gov/eq/.
You will note in the left hand column under "Seismic Hazard" a listing for
Hazard by Zip Code and another listing for Hazard by Lat/Long.  Use these to
determine the ground motion accelerations for your particular site.

If you have any questions concerning the use of the information provided at
this USGS site, contact E. V. Leyendecker at leyendecker(--nospam--at)gldvxa.cr.usgs.gov.
