SC Bridges, Nuke Plants, Dams OK after Quake

Dr. Steven Jaume with South Carolina Earthquake Education and Preparedness at the College of Charleston says the quake is the largest in South Carolina since a magnitude 4.4 earthquake offshore of Edisto Island in 2002.

Jaume says Friday’s night’s quake occurred in a part of South Carolina that has a geologic history similar to that of Louisa County, Virginia, the location of the magnitude 5.8 earthquake in 2011 that damaged buildings in Washington, D.C., including the Washington Monument.
