Thread Name: BS: you don't often get to see an earthquake
Subject: RE: BS: you don't often get to see an earthquake
On the news the other night they explained that where there are fewer fault lines, as in the midwest, a quake tends to be felt farther afield, while on the US west coast with its many fault lines the effects tend to be more localized. They said that in the midwest a quake has been felt as far as 1600 miles away. Did I misunderstand?
