 In November of 2012, many local residents were startled by what seemed to be a loud explosion. ​ Vibrations were felt throughout our area, and news reports confirmed we had experienced an earthquake. ​ Granted, this wasn’t a building-toppling,​ life-threatening event like quakes occurring in Japan or our own West coast, but it wasn’t an isolated case. In fact, Boone County has experienced tremors from the earliest days of settlement to just a few months ago.  In November of 2012, many local residents were startled by what seemed to be a loud explosion. ​ Vibrations were felt throughout our area, and news reports confirmed we had experienced an earthquake. ​ Granted, this wasn’t a building-toppling,​ life-threatening event like quakes occurring in Japan or our own West coast, but it wasn’t an isolated case.
