Scary Fact: 15 Category 7 Or Higher Earthquakes Each Year

As friends up and down the East coast recount seeing walls vibrate, homes sway, ground undulate, pictures and TVs fall as a result of the 5.8 earth quake, 15 plus 7 earthquakes on average occur each year around the world.

A 7.0 earthquake would be more than 10 times stronger than a 5.8 earthquake.

The devestating Japanese earthquake was 9.5 or more than 1000 times stronger than the East coast earthquake.  Tuesday's earthquake was the strongest on the East Coast since 1897.
