In the fall of 1969 we were grading tobacco and had a trimmer shake! Shook the doors of the grading house and shook the china cabinet at home to the point that some dishes fell over. We have trimmers quite a lot, we just don't feel them. The earth is rumbling and busy all of the time. We aren't aware of this much of the time.

A few years ago there was a 2 or a 3 around five fifteen p.m. The geology service said the epicenter was in Redbrush.
If a major earthquake happens along the Madrid fault across the river from Memphis we will feel stronger tremors than that.
