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.

USGS Wants Homes For Earthquake Sensors: KNX 1070’s Ron Kilgore reports.

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