On Friday, May 4, 2001, at 1:42AM CDT (06:42:12 UTC) central Arkansas was shaken by a magnitude 4.4 earthquake followed by over 2,500 aftershocks in the following two months. The epicenter was located in Faulkner County about three miles northwest of the small town of Enola (Lat. 35.237N, Long. -92.232W). Two of the larger aftershocks were detected in the same area during the next several hours: a 2.7 magnitude earthquake at 3:32AM and a 2.5 magnitude earthquake the next day (Saturday, May 5, 2001) at 2:39AM. Two other aftershocks occurred on May 22, 2001. The first at 2:28AM had a magnitude of 2.2; the other event occurred at 3:09AM CDT. Both of these small earthquakes were located near Vilonia (Figure 1 and Table 1).

Some several pages back someone mentioned FEMA test for Aug. Last week and in other threads it was being discussed, it is set for mid May.
Talks about FEMA buying up a weeks worth of water, MRE's and survival blankets for "immediate use"
"I think everyone recognizes that there is an increased number of seismic events occurring in and around this area. If you look at the maps, at least circumstantially, there appears to be evidence that they may be related to disposal operations," said Khoury. "But we also know that this is an area that is historically active."
Although drilling for natural gas has been ruled out as a cause for the quakes, experts want to continue looking at salt water disposal wells, said Scott Ausbrooks, geohazards supervisor for the Geological Survey. Disposal wells occur when drilling waster is injected back into the earth after drilling.
