    Hi,
    I hope you are all okay, I was just telling my hubby down in London about it, looked it up online, the news filtered through to our media after I heard about it here!!!
    I didn't think the East coast was prone to earthquakes, am I wrong. I thought it was over the California side that they were always on the watch out.
    Take care,
    Sue (rummage)

    There are all kinds of Fault Lines on the Eastern coast..
    There is one that runs through Ohio

    The East Coast is quake prone. The great earthquake Aug. 31, 1886, was one of the largest on record. In fact the Charleston, South Carolina, USA sits on a fault. Charleston is also home to one of many Richter Scales located in the USA.

    The East Coast also has a fault line here in the U.S. I felt it here at the office.
