Over the past few days, the mini-swarm of quakes along the New Madrid consisted of 8 quakes with Thursday nights 3.0 being the largest so far.
As of this writing, the "felt" reports continue to come in from many in New Madrid, Missouri that report they felt the quake. Current count is 24.
This sudden surge of (albeit minor) quakes along the New Madrid Fault are a bit ironic as February is Earthquake Awareness Month in Missouri. You now have our undivided attention New Madrid Fault Zone.
