3.6 Magnitude EarthquakeStrong Tremors Felt Throughout Regions Due To Old and Capable Plates

 Paul Caruso a geophysicist who works with the Geological Survey, informed the New York Times that the agency must be ready to accept any sort of significant and mild damage from the earthquake, but they were not to be taken seriously, as the buildings and bridges were built using anti-earthquake methods of protection and safety. The earthquakes in this particular area are usually felt very very far away throughout the entire platonic region as the rocks in this area are very, very much contiguous and very old, hence, they would be able to transmit the energy and tremors felt from the plates quite efficiently, managing to successfully send waves of shock spreading across a humungous area of land, as stated by Caruso.
