Weird Borders

Did you know there is a little part of Kentucky that is non-contiguous? I didn’t either, but via Waldo Jaquith I see that there is the odd little enclave, called the Kentucky Bend.

Yep, that little bubble of Kentucky that is wedged in between Missouri and Tennessee is real. It was caused by the 1812 New Madrid earthquake, which moved the Mississippi river after the borders were settled.
