The Shaking Quakes in Arkansas

The memorable earthquakes that I have experienced:

I was in Ohio, a good distance from the epicenter in Kentucky. However the ripple effect was felt quite intensely in Dayton. This was the first earthquake that I experienced in my adult years and all of the awareness of true danger.

Ah… the Whittier-Narrows… I was right in Long Beach, California. The devastation was wide spread and quite significant. Now the danger I felt was for my children and so five months later we left California for a more stable environment!

Who knew Arkansas would begin a consistent pattern of earthquakes that appears to be alternately growing in intensity? Of course, this is where I am, right in the thick of it. What was mind blowing, the other night, was the fact there were two potential natural catastrophes converging in Arkansas. Now Arkansans are going to have to make storm cellars that are earthquake proof too!
