    In the last 24 hours Arkansas has experienced thirteen earthquakes ranging all the way up to 3.9.

    Are there any BB members in Arkansas, who can comment on this recent earth shaking activity? :tonofbricks:

    I'm not from Arkansas but I think it is due to a process of extracting natural gas.

    Thanks, Sag38

    That seems to make some sense.

    I think it is called "fracking."

    Yes. They fracture (frac) the shale where the natural gas is to help extract it.

    Not to be confused with the term used in Battle Star Galactica and that being one of the main reasons I stopped watching the show.

    Or . . . it could be seismic activity at the southern end of the New Madrid fault. This is the same fault that caused the great earthquake in 1811 that was so strong it caused the Mississippi River to flow backward. It formed Reelfoot Lake in N.W. Tennessee and was felt as far away as Boston, Mass.
