The epicenter was one mile east of Hayward, Missouri and about four miles southeast of Portageville, Missouri around 10:20 p.m. Tuesday night.
The U.S. Geological Survey says the 2.7-magnitude temblor was shortly before 1 a.m. Monday east and northeast of Benton.
In the predawn hours of December 16, 1811, the first in a series of tremors which would last months awoke residents of New Madrid in southeast Missouri.
Steve Besemer says people cannot be forced into a false sense of security because it has been 200-plus years since the last major earthquake.
Epicenter was 4 miles north of Bellmont in Wabash County.
An earthquake shook sections of the Metro-East around 7:30 this morning.
More than 200 business and government leaders are meeting this week to coordinate efforts on earthquake preparedness.
