Earthquakes? In Delaware?!

August 23rd, 2011 by Beth-Ann Ryan

Did you feel that?  Delaware was shaken by an earthquake today.  As I chatted with co-workers, checked facebook and twitter, and read blogs, it became clear not many of us east coasters knew how to deal with an earthquake.

Thankfully FEMA has a a guide for what do to before, during, and after an earthquake. They also have guides to other disasters.

Virginia also seems pretty far away for an earthquake to be felt in Delaware.  Check here if you are interested in knowing the differences between an earthquake on the east coast and one on the west coast.

    Colorado had an earth quake on the 22nd also. What a weird thing. There have been earth quakes in Colorado before, but they are not common. And like people in Delaware, people in Colorado are not accustomed to earth quakes.
