Three small quakes on the low end of what commonly can be felt by humans were recorded in north-central Arkansas.
The first, a 2.0-magnitude quake, was centered near Oil Trough and occurred around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. A second one near Quitman happened a half hour after the first.
The last was around midnight, also near Quitman. The other two were also a magnitude of 2.0.
Small earthquakes have rattled the region for years now - more than a thousand have been recorded along the fault line that that runs south of Guy to north of Quitman.
Geologists with the Arkansas Geological Survey have said they expect quakes in central Arkansas to continue despite the Oil and Gas Commission's move to shut down natural gas drilling injection wells that were believed to be contributing to the seismic activity.
