Small tremor noted

 

Yorktown, Nordheim and area residents were “shaken up” by a couple of activities here during the past week.
 
U.S. Geological Survey reported a 2.8 magnitude earthquake 9.32 miles west of Yorktown on Thursday, March 6, at 8:40 p.m.
 
Nordheim Mayor Kathy Payne said, “We didn’t experience anything here,” on Friday morning, March 7.  “Right now I’m more worried about the waste pits,” she said, referring to the proposed waste water disposal sites near the city limits.
 
On Sunday evening, March 9, residents in Yorktown experienced a loud “boom” at approximately 7:30-8 p.m.  The noise rattled houses and caused Facebook status’ to explode.
 
A call to the DeWitt County Sheriff’s Department on Monday morning confirmed that an explosion had occurred on a residence here, but no further information was available.
