Two small earthquakes near the New Madrid Fault Zone didn’t do any damage, but served as a reminder of what is beneath our feet.
The U.S. Geological Survey says a 2.7 tremor struck near Hayti, Missouri around 10:20 Tuesday night. No one was injured and there were no reports of damage in the small quake.
Meanwhile, a 3.1 quake shook the ground near Clinton, Arkansas around 6 a.m. Wednesday morning. Scientists say smaller earthquakes are not predictors of larger ones, but residents are always reminded to be ready with a plan of action if a major earthquake were to strike.
