New Madrid Fault Says Hello

New Madrid Fault Areas of Influence

The New Madrid fault line gave us a wee hello yesterday. A magnitude 2.8 earthquake located in southeast Missouri happened yesterday, at 07:11:37 PM (CST). Several years ago, I actually felt my first earthquake. No, not on a visit to California, it was here in Oxford, Mississippi. It is interesting as I knew instantly what it was, even though I had never been in an earthquake before.

There was a quake on Sat Nov 9, 1968 that measured 5.4 on the richter. I was living in S IL at the time, very near the epicenter. It was quite a jolt and several aftershocks occurred immediately following.
