CAPE GIRARDEAU - Evidence has been found of a new earthquake fault in the Missouri Bootheel. Geologist Dave Hoffman of the Missouri Department of Natural Resources discovered possible signs of a past earthquake at an auto salvage yard east of Bloomfield. He named the fault, "Holly Ridge," because it is within a quarter mile of the forested, Holly Ridge state conservation area. Hoffman discovered the fault in October while driving along County Road 537.
