We are near a major fault here called the New Madrid Fault if you've ever heard of it. The people here have felt earthquakes in the past. Guess it wasn't a huge one. The article says 4.0 magnitude. Very surreal.
UPDATE: I wrote the previous post before going to school this morning. The earthquake was all the talk all day around town. There are a lot more articles on it now and I even saw Shep Smith do an earthquake story on our little East Prairie on the Fox Report tonight. So thankful it wasn't worse. Here's another article about it.
