Earthquakes not unusual for western NC

A small earthquake shook homes near Asheville early in the morning of January 7. Dr Scott Marshall was interviewed by WUNC radio, based in Chapel Hill, to provide context for this quake. Dr Mashall reassures readers that small earthquakes in the eastern US are not uncommon, and that they cause ground shaking that can be felt much further away than California earthquakes.
