Police in Centerton verified an earthquake that fast? They should have been given the video from Bella Vista to reveiw. They could have called the murder a murder there in an hour instead of the 3 months it took State Police, Bella Vista PD and the PA office. Good job Centerton. Now the question is, since there is no fault line in Centerton, why was there an earthquake? Mystery.

I live in Centerton and I felt it...it was a quick shake though, like it was an accident. But it shook my whole room where I was. Like a quick boom.

I'm just behind Harp's and didn't feel any trembling - just a loud boom and the windows shook. It was in conjunction with a jet taking off from the airport, so I thought it was just a jet flying too low.

I felt it in Gravette, but I was like the others just thought it was an explosion but had a thunder sound to it. Shook everything here but no damage

My husband felt it west of Decatur as well but what he felt was like a strong wind hitting the house, he didn't know that it was an earthquake.

I live in Centerton and have a hard time believing the police department is qualified to confirm much of anything much less an earthquake.

Since you judge the PD so fast let me ask you what crime it is that happened to you that they failed to solve? Or is it that you got a ticket and have a grudge against them?
