USGS Looking For South OC Homes For Earthquake Sensors

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — How would you like to be the first on your block to have your own earthquake sensor?

The U.S. Geological Survey is looking for homes willing to host shoe box-sized earthquake sensors, which will help scientists better understand how the ground moves when an earthquake hits.

The USGS is especially interested in placing sensors in southern Orange County.

    Why affluent Orange County and not the poorer neighborhoods? Take those sensors to South Central where people have more to lose because they have so little.
