It’s been an interesting month for geology buffs in Central Virginia. We’ve had 5 minor earthquakes. The Central Virginia Seismic Zone does produce earthquakes every once in a while but the burst of activity lately is notable enough that that Virginia Tech Seismological Observatory issued a statement about it. The jist: these earthquakes are deeper than the ones we usually see and may lead to more in the future.
I produced a story about it for nbc12.com and our evening newscasts. Check it out here and let me know what you think. Do you think we’ll get a bigger earthquake soon?
