(Newser) – Apparently the planet is cranky today. As if Hurricane Sandy weren't enough, Arkansas got a jolt from a 3.9-magnitude earthquake this morning, the US Geological Survey announced. The quake hit near the Tennessee border, at a depth of about 3.2 miles, according to CNN. The quake is the third of note to hit North America since yesterday morning, following another 3.9 affair in downtown LA and a 7.7 off the coast of Canada. (Read more Arkansas stories.)
