U.S. Earthquake Activity

24 Aug

Two rare earthquakes struck the US yesterday in areas that have not seen earthquakes in ages. Luckily no fatalities took place as the east coast’s building codes are not made to withstand earthquakes, they are geared more for hurricanes. Here is a list of all of the activity recorded on August 23, 2011.
