AP) Federal and state emergency officials are encouraging Arkansas residents to prepare now for a possible earthquake.
The United States Geological Survey considers Arkansas among the states with a "high earthquake risk" because of activity in the New Madrid fault zone.
The fault runs from Marked Tree to near Cairo, Ill., and while it remains active, most of the quakes are too small to be felt at the surface.
Win Henderson, a spokesman for the Federal Emergency Management Agency at Little Rock, said Monday the agency wanted to issue a reminder to residents because catastrophic earthquakes are so unpredictable.
"It could be tomorrow. It could be 60 years. We don't know," Henderson said.
