 previous story | next story

On April 30th, Uri ten Brink and Debbie Hutchinson participated in a gathering at Boston College-Weston Observatory in Weston, MA, with Randy Updike (TCS) and Russ Wheeler (Central Earthquake Hazards Team), Dave Russ (Eastern Regional Geologist), and Jill McCarthy (deputy Program Coordinator for the Earthquake Program). They joined members of the Northeast States Emergency Consortium (NESEC) to hold a formal press release for the newly published map showing Earthquake Hazards for the Northeastern US. John Ebel, Director of Weston Observatory, hosted the event. The map shows locations and sizes of more than 1,000 earthquakes that were large enough to be felt by humans. It also identifies the many earthquakes that were large enough to have caused damage, including those that struck Boston, New York City, and other urban areas. The map carries a short, non-technical text, summaries of the effects of the most notable earthquakes, and selected newspaper headlines and damage photographs.
