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.
