Yes, you can have earthquakes too.

It’s about this time of year, when we’re sunny and in the 70s here in LA, that someone back East is shoveling snow and says “well, at least we don’t have earthquakes.”  But like the rest of the East Coast, Pennsylvania does have earthquakes. And when earthquakes hit mining regions, remember that the ground underfoot is mostly hollow.

Have a nice day.

    I’ve experienced two minor earthquakes in New England — one in Vermont in the mid-1980s, and one in Connecticut about ten years ago. We are completely unprepared for this of course. At least snow melts, eventually, but earthquake damage has a much longer recovery period.
