Carolina Quake...

Some residents near Winston-Salem had a small quake early this morning. The National Earthquake Information Center in Golden Colorado registered the shaker as a 2.6 on the Richter Scale. When compared to the 6.6 magnitue quake that jolted the big island of Hawaii over the weekend; this one was like a drop in the bucket. Most of the aftershocks in Hawaii have been larger than what rattled residents in Forsyth County.

If you are interested in seeing some info about this small quake feel free to check out the USGS site. A brief write up and more details can be found here.
