Residents in Morris Plains, New Jersey reported tremors--reminding folks that the Garden State has a fault line.  It's called the Ramapo fault and Kathryn Miles, author of "Quakeland," explains more about this lesser known spot for earthquake activity.  She also discusses fault lines in New York City.  Miles mentions that the brick walkup and brownstones would pose more danger and destruction during an earthquake than most of the newer skyscrapers.

And if you think, we have been experiencing our share of wild weather with Hurricane Irma, Harvey and Maria...Miles has an explanation for that too.  Check out her book "Quakeland."
