ScienceNow Daily News says the NYC area is due for an earthquake. Yes, *this* New York City.
Geoscientists at Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory in Palisades, NY count 383 sesmic events in our area since 1677. The research was compiled as part of studies for a new Tappan Zee Bridge and re-licensing Indian Point. You have to go back to 1884 to find a quake of magnitude five or greater. But in geological terms, that’s a blink of an eye.
Perhaps this is good material for a Nyack area author with writer’s block looking for their next best seller. If you someday soon see titles like
Panic in The Palisades,
Hudson Horror or
Nyack, The Village Under The Hudson try not to be too surprised.
