Whenever the ground shakes in New England, the first place to contact for information is the Weston Observatory, located on the Boston College campus.
And that's where we WINS girls headed, to see the seismographs which pick up every single major quake in the world.
Sooner or later, seismic waves -- even those from the other side of the planet Earth -- will go right under our feet to be measured by the Weston Observatory!
New England does have frequent small earthquakes, mostly those measuring from 2 to 4 on the Richter Scale. It's hard to believe, but the Boston area itself has had some pretty substantial earthquakes...our last "big one" was 1755!
