Want to see what a hurricane looks like on a seismometer?

October 29, 2012 in Post

Hurricane Sandy is currently making my house shake, so I thought I’d share what it’s doing to our seismometer in northeast PA.

That extreme background noise is NOT the wind.  It’s the storm waves crashing on the beach 100 miles away and traveling through the ground.  For comparison, here’s what a normal day with low background noise looks like.

Stay safe, everybody.
