Shake, Rattle, & Roll in Northern Arkansas

Since October 4th, the small town of Guy, Arkansas has observed almost three dozen small earthquakes according to the United States Geological Survey (USGS).  Almost all in this swarm have registered a magnitude of 2.5 or less, but something disturbing has occurred since Friday night. Two, rare, 3.0 quakes have rattled the nerves in northern Faulkner county.  The first one was observed at 11:13 PM Friday and the second at 7:48 AM Sunday.

What's causing them?  Everyone has an opinion, but no one knows for sure at this point.  On Friday, Channel 7 reporter, Roger Susanin, traveled to Guy.  CLICK HERE for the story.  This story was filed before the two 3.0 quakes hit the area.
