More small earthquakes recorded in Arkansas

May 26, 2013

MORRILTON — The US Geological Survey says small earthquakes continue to occur in an area near Morrilton — about 50 miles west of Little Rock.

The USGS reports two, 2.3 magnitude quakes in the area about nine miles northeast of Morrilton. One was recorded at 8:20 p.m. Saturday and the other at 3:10 a.m. Sunday. The quakes are among about three dozen recorded in the area in recent weeks — including a 3.4 magnitude tremor early Friday.

No injuries have been reported.

Geologists say earthquakes of magnitude 2.5 to 3.0 are generally the smallest that are felt by humans and that damage isn't likely from quakes below magnitude 4.0.
