If you like earthquakes, then visit ArkansasPosted Thursday, November 11, 2010, at 2:56 PM
Last weekend's 2.8 earthquake caused a surprising amount of noise and commotion for such a small event.
Can you imagine the ruckus if we had several dozen of these earthquakes in a row? How about 352?
That's what folks in Guy, Arkansas, have seen during the last six months. The ground just keeps shaking.
Usually, the list of earthquakes for the Central U.S. is filled with reports from around New Madrid. But right now the list is dominated by small quakes near Guy, Arkansas, located north of Little Rock in Faulkner County.
On the other hand, Faulkner County has seen earthquake swarms before, including a massive number of events near the town of Enola starting in 1982. Other earthquake clusters have been noted throughout Arkansas.
Whether the Arkansas earthquakes are man-made or a natural fluke, let's hope we never have a similar "Quake Quandry" here in Southeast Missouri.
