Does Minnesota have a fault line?

I heard through the grape vine that there is a fault line deep down in the crust in the southern central part if minnesota near mankato. I don't know if ths is true or not, but it is part of a snow belt that we have herethat always gets hit hard with snow every year. Just wondering if they are not possibly a hundred percent true.

    There are fault lines everywhere and cause no harm to anyone. The problem occurs where there is a fault line between techtonic plates eg around the Pacific and there is movement.

    Snow would have zero effect on any fault line so don't worry. just avid visiting California!
