Friday, the governor released $300,000 for equipment to monitor this seismic activity. The $300,000 comes from general improvement funds.
In just the past month, these are all of the areas in Arkansas hit by small earthquakes.
"It's uncommon. I haven't observed so many earthquakes in a short period of time, and in high concentrated area," Dr. Haydar Al-Shukri with the UALR Earthquake Center said.
Al-Shukri with the UALR earthquake center says the need for equipment to monitor this activity is necessary. Since all of these areas aren't on the New Madrid fault, seismologists wonder what's causing all of the movement.

Well I can't wait for these Earthquakes NOT to happen. Honestly how much more true can the "dustbin of history get?" If you don't remember it it's bound to repeat itself. Webots...really? I remember back in October webots were predicting something along the lines of a complete stock market crash. And while the stock market was down the webot was peaking on a certain day and predicting something really bad. Some of you read it so many different ways.
Eventually that day came and nothing happened I even think that the stock markets made slight gains on the day predicted...Many of you were so quick to forget that yet now you believe in this. It truly proves that humans nothing more want to see the destruction of themselves. You guys need to get a life.

Here's another thing.
Be a scientist for a moment.
WE know there are eathquakes.
We know there are tsunamis.
We know there are tornados.
We know there are asteroids/meterites/etc. that hit.
We KNOW in our lifetime, there are actually volcanos that explode.
We know there are hurricanes.
We do we act so astonished when they hit?
Especially if we are personally effected by them?
Did anyone here personally experience Mt. ST. Helens?
just my stupid humble opinion.
Yes, actually I did get to enjoy the eruption of Mt. St. Helens. I was just a kid then and had watched the movie "The Exorcist" the night before with my cousins. We were absolutely terrified when we woke up to the bed shaking! I've experienced earthquakes as well. If something does happen on the dates indicated, it'll make for one of the most un-fun holiday seasons in our history.
