Neat earthquake map

Posted August 24, 2011

The London Daily Mail headline says, "The day the Earth shook: Buildings damaged as biggest earthquake in over a century strikes East Coast leaving path of destruction".  

Well...

That headline may be accurate in the most liberal sense of the words used.  Fortunately, the Great Earthquake of '11 was more curiosity than calamity.  Here's a neat map and blog article from Discover magazine showing how the earthquake's seismic waves raced across the nation.
