Time For A Tennessee Quake?

Posted By on Mon, Oct 23, 2006 at 4:00 AM

Okay, we’ve got good news and we’ve got bad news when it comes to the impending Tennessee earthquake. The good news is that one quake doesn’t beget another, so says Monday’s New York Times. The 6.4 quake off Peru wasn’t because of the 6.8 quake in Papua New Guinea or the 6.7 quake in Hawaii last week.

The bad news? The United States Geological Survey estimates that there is a quake of 6.0 or higher somewhere in the world every two and a half days.
