We had an earthquake this morning that registered 4.0 on the Richter scale. The epicenter was on the New Madrid Fault not far from Sikeston, MO. which is within 50 miles of my home here in Kentucky. It occured at 4:00 am and did not wake me, but many in the area reported feeling it. Being this close the New Madrid Fault, we have many small earthquakes, but it is unusual for ones of this magnitude.
