Late summer was a rough time for the East Coast of the United States between the earthquake centered in Virginia and Hurricane Irene. Neither event was very severe, and most of the major damage was localized to a few areas. That is good since Irene was a large storm that lost energy, and no one expected the earthquake. Thousands are recovering from the hurricane, but the forecast was for millions to be impacted—at least 1 in 5 Americans. The earthquake was a surprise that was limited in damage.
