3 small tremors shake up White, Cleburne Counties


WHITE COUNTY, Ark. (KTHV/AP) – Central Arkansas caught three small tremors early Monday morning.

According to the United States Geological Survey (USGS), a 2.0 magnitude earthquake shook around midnight about 9 miles northwest of Bald Knob. Two hours later, two more 2.0 tremors shook in the same vicinity.

A 1.8 magnitude quake was reported about 9 miles southeast of Fairfield Bay a couple of days prior to this incident.

Geologists say earthquakes of magnitude 2.5 to 3.0 are generally the smallest that are felt by humans and that damage is not likely as a result of quakes below magnitude 4.0.
