Earthquake

There was an earthquake in New York state north of the Adirondack Park this morning. Here's the preliminary report from the USGS. The 3.7 magnitude quake occurred along New York's border with Quebec in the north eastern part of the state at 10:35 AM local time this.

It's always a little unnerving to be reminded that California is not the only seismicly active area of the US. Back in the 1980s there was a small quake in New York City in the early morning that had me dreaming that our apartment building was hit by a subway train. There are some fault lines that run through New York City which is part of the reason why some of the subway tracks there were built above ground. Some speculate that New York City may experience its own "big one" some day but for now there are just minor tremors here and there.
