Seismologists Baffled Over Rare Earthquake

Posted by Kyle Brookings on Friday, December 1, 2017

Seismologists are baffled after a rare 4.1 magnitude earthquake shook on Delaware Thursday evening.

Earthquakes in that region are exceptionally rare.

The earthquake was felt in multiple cities along the east coast of the United States.

Where the earthquake occurred there is no known fault line.

Until now it was believed that earthquakes could not happen there because there was no reason for an earthquake to happen.

In fact, it is rare for an earthquake to strike anywhere east of the Rocky Mountains.
