    Three earthquakes in three days. More than coincidence?
    August 24, 2011 - First came an earthquake in Colorado. Then Virginia's quake shook the US from South Carolina to New England. Finally, San Francisco had a rattler as well. Are they connected?

    How could Virginia quake be felt in Canada and crack the Washington Monument?
    August 24, 2011 - Rocks of the East Coast conduct earthquakes much better than rocks in the West. It means a moderate quake in rural Virginia can travel far and damage the Washington Monument.
