3 earthquakes shake southeast Missouri in under an hour. How would a bigger quake impact Kansas City?
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A small town in southeast Missouri was rattled by three earthquakes in less than an hour this week. They all measured less than a 3.0 on the Richter scale, but the frequency has some wondering what will happen in KC if the much-talked about "big one" ever hits in the New Madrid Fault Zone.
