NJ earthquake added to doomsday list

Yesterday – several news sites mentioned a small earthquake rattling NJ towns in wake of Hurricane Sandy.

“The temblor, with a magnitude of 2.0, struck at 1:19 a.m. and was centered in Ringwood, a community that’s still dealing with downed trees and power outages from Sandy.

Geophysicist Jessica Turner at the National Earthquake Information Center says some people reported hearing a loud boom. Turner says those on upper floors of a home might have felt shaking or saw objects on walls vibrate. The quake was 3 miles below ground and could also be felt in Mahwah, Wanaque, Oakland, Franklin Lakes, West Milford and Paterson.”

Great! Just what we need – Hurricanes, Nor’Easters and now Earthquakes. What else can we add to the list?
