Was there an earthquake in Nebraska?
Since 1867, the year Nebraska became a state, at least 7 earthquakes have originated within Nebraska's boundaries. The strongest of these occurred on November 15, 1877 with an intensity of at least VII based on the Modified Mercalli scale of earthquake intensity from I to XII. This scale replaced the Rossi-Forel scale in 1902, although some countries still use it. It has been modified multiple times throughout the century. The most recent earthquake in Nebraska occurred on October 15, 1972. Its magnitude was calculated as a 3.7 on the Richter Magnitude Scale (named after Charles F. Richter).

It all depends on what time of year you are visiting and what part of NE you are visiting... If you are looking for good family things to do we have the one and only Henry Doo…rly Zoo. If you're in to outdoors stuff maybe try the Badlands National park.

With earthquakes, you really can't tell when or where they will occur.
Grab an emergency kit and get under a sturdy structure. Cover your head with your hands.
stop, drop, and get under a blanket.
siesmic waves are sent and an earthquake happens.
Your question is unclear in the fact that you dont tell what "what" means so frankly it can't be answered.
A Earthquake is located where the two plates (a plate boundary) meet and there is to much pressure building up and that is how and where a earthquake is and how it happens.
