3.2 Magnitude Quake Hits Near Bardwell
By West Kentucky Star Staff
BARDWELL, KY - The ground shook across portions of at least three states, after a magnitude 3.2 quake struck directly underneath the Mississippi River just west of Bardwell.

The USGS says the quake happened at 5:20 am, Tuesday.  Within minutes of the ground shaking, residents of western Kentucky began logging on to the USGS website and registering they felt the quake.

This is the third quake along the New Madrid over the past week.  A magnitude 2.9 struck near Lilbourn, Missouri on Sunday, and a 1.9 last week near Tiptonville, Tennessee.

No damage has been reported with any of the tremors.
