A New Madrid Reminder

This morning at 3:58 local time an earthquake occurred in the New Madrid seismic zone with the magnitude of 4.  The quake was felt across a several state region and acted as an reminder that the New Madrid zone is still active and can produce earthquakes that can be felt and larger ones that can cause damage.  Ironically it occurred  a week after the 200th anniversary of the February 7, 1812 New Madrid earthquake.  For further information visit theCERI website for information and updates as they occur.
