Most of Missouri's earthquake activity has been concentrated in the southeast corner of the State, which lies within the New Madrid seismic zone. As recently as Merch 29, 1972, the region was jolted by a magnitude 3.7 shock that was felt over a 168,000 square kilometre area including parts of Arkansas, Illinois, Mississippi, and Tennessee.
