Although SC isn't exactly known as an earthquake zone, our history says otherwise. South Carolina is an active seismic zone with an average of 10 to 15 earthquakes a year. Back in 1886, the Charleston earthquake caused 60 deaths and rattled most of the east coast of the United States. According to accounts here in the BDC, the earthquake caused a tidal wave in the Beaufort River and the "Naked and Afraid" exposure of one of Beaufort's finest citizens to his neighbors.
For the visually minded, our partner, the Lowcountry Digital Library, hosts images of the devastation caused by the earthquake at http://bit.ly/11eZymv. Also we have no images of the tidal wave or the public exposure to share.
Do you know what to do when the earth moves?
