I am following this with intense interest, being as I live in the same state. I'm surprised the news has not picked it up.

yikes keep us posted,

I remember a few yrs back when when i was walking down to the garden and I fell flat. On no i thought, this is it "i have turned old"

But back in the house my dd said excitedly "what was that"! A glass dish was down but no other damage. Then later it was reported we had an earthquake.

I was relieved it wasn't old age that dropped me but troublesome we had an earthquake.

I have been working on my falling skills ever sense ;)

be safe, linda

NitWit1, the really curious thing about these earthquakes is that this part of the state has never had a recorded earthquake.

Central and eastern AR, on the other hand, have frequent small quakes like the one we've had. But they just had 5 in the past week, which seems a little excessive, to me.

Linda, I'm glad it wasn't just old age that dropped you like that!
