The recent rise in the number of earthquakes in Faulkner County has caught the attention of many. Sen. Blanche Lincoln recently sent a letter to the Senior Science Advisor for Earthquake and Geological Hazards requesting a report from the USGS assessing the recent earthquakes. Faulkner County Judge Preston Scroggin said more scientists would be coming to the area to study the recent quakes.
