Multiple earthquakes have rattled the Nation over the past 24 hours according to reports from USGS. 4 earthquakes HAVE reportedly rattled Missouri, Illinois, Kansas and New Jersey. Although these quakes were small could they be a sign of the New Madrid fault waking up? And what about the Ramapo fault?
Four small earthquakes struck along the New Madrid fault – 2x Missouri, Illinois, Kansas – and one quake struck New Jersey between August 7th and August 8th, 2016. The U.S. Geological Survey says a 2.3 magnitude earthquake hit near Caruthersville, MO around 9:15 p.m. on August 7, 2016. This first quake was followed by a M1.0 in New Jersey, a M2.4 near Albion, Illinois on August 8, as well as a M1.0 in New Jersey, a M2.7 in Caldwell, Kansas, and a M2.6 near East Prairie, Missouri, on August 9, 2016.
