What's Shakin'?

By Frank Morris


Kansas City, MO – It happened again about a quarter til nine Monday night. An earthquake in Oklahoma made the earth shake in Kansas City. The quake Monday was a 4.7 magnitude aftershock, from a stronger, 5.6 quake, also felt in KC Saturday night. KCUR's Frank Morris checked in with University of Kansas Geologist Don Steeples to see if the KC region was getting to be a more seismically happening place to be. But as it turns out, everyday quakes just make a bigger splash on this side of the Continental Divide.

I’ve been at KCUR almost 30 years, working partly for NPR and splitting my time between local and national reporting. I work to bring extra attention to people in the Midwest, my home state of Kansas and of course Kansas City. What I love about this job is having a license to talk to interesting people and then crafting radio stories around their voices. It’s a big responsibility to uphold the truth of those stories while condensing them for lots of other people listening to the radio, and I take it seriously.
