Another small quake rattles SE Missouri

Apr 05, 2013 -- 7:00pm


For the second time this week, residents in southeast Missouri felt the rumble of a small earthquake. But an expert said it's nothing to worry about -- small quakes strike in the New Madrid seismic zone roughly 200 times a year.  The U.S. Geological Survey says the latest earthquake was centered near Caruthersville, a magnitude 2.7 quake that struck at 7:27 p.m. Thursday. There were no reports of damage or injuries. Two days earlier, another 2.7-magnitude quake was centered near Portageville.
