"New Hampshire gets earthquakes?"

"New Hampshire gets earthquakes?" was a common question today as we dove into day 3 of Natural Hazards. Today was also not the day to wear a dress, as I got down on the floor to demonstrate P and S waves. I wish I had thought to have the students videotape me but here is a similiar demonstration to use in your class. I am very focused on bringing all the concepts I cover in class down to the local level and this unit on Natural Hazards is a great one to align local hazards to. I spent the past two days going over what a hazard and a disaster are defined as and looking at some case studies of local events such as the Patriots Day Storm in 2007, the Ice Storm in 2008, The New Hampshire Tornado
