I remember the last earthquake i felt in NY.. it was also a saturday, (Oct 1987 or so) a friend Ben had just gotten married, and when he & wife came back from honeymoon, we teased both-- (You, know, Michele, he's not that good--it was an earthquake.., or the opposite vein, Wow, he is so good the earth moved for me, too..)

is was mild enough here in Long Island.-- but we are many miles away from epicenter.

Here, down state, it felt as if the kids (imaginary kids) where shaking the bed.. milder shaking than a "massage" bed in a cheap motel. but i could hear things gently rattling.. windows.

i have been to both Japan, and CA, and felt stronger quakes, that still were not serious.

though the news article hinted about NY's underlying granite -- I don't know all the geology of NYS, but the whole NE of US is pretty solid rock..some ignatous, (basalt) mostly granite. (metamorphic, right?) Manhattan is schist, but i think more of NY is gniess. (but i don't really know enough about them to be able to speak of characteristics. the schist overlies the gneiss, and it is overlayed by marble..

most of NY marble is (especially in souther tier) has been eroded away-- but there is still plenty of the marble in vermont. but my computer is too slow to pull up most of the GIS stuff-

Good thing it didn't reach 3.5 down here in South Jersey...that's when it's calculated the artificial island of mud that the Hope Creek Nuclear Plant is built on (a genius of engineering ) collapses into Delaware Bay and presto!...meltdown.

The Only WO'N!

That's it! You two girls must be my guest-of-honors at my next Hurricane Party. No matter if the hurricane is a dud, your curlicue way with the english language will insure the party a huge success.
