QUAKE WATCH: NJ & NYC Area. Small Quake Indicates Instability From Sandy Passage. Nor’easter This Week Could Trigger Larger Quake
November 5th, 2012
Sudden and large snow load could also factor in triggering a quake
Latest NAM has it at 976mb
Got a small quake 5 hrs ago.
5 km deep.
Was felt in a number of towns in New Jersey.
IMHO, this was caused by the rebounding of the NAM plate from Sandy’s pressure drop.
Region is now unstable.
Nor’easter due mid-week will cause a sudden pressure drop in the area again and could set off a big quake within the next two weeks.
