** Japanese earthquake stirred South Florida waters/ Article says" Bad thing is pollution can travel this way
This online News Paper article I found out of the Miami Herald talks abouthow Japans Earthquake affected Florida's water tables and how Pollution can travel thru the water aquifers and how it can travel fast trough Florida"s water tables/aquifers.
After reading the article below..It makes me wonder whats next, as far as..... will radioactive waters flow into Florida through the Aquifers??
From what this article says it sure seems like that's what they are saying!
Groundwater levels in South Florida rose and fell up to three inches after the Japan earthquake, officials said.
The earthquake and tsunami in Japan was felt thousands of miles away in South Florida’s water table.
About 34 minutes after the magnitude 9.0 quake shook the island on March 11, water levels from Orlando to the Florida Keys rose and fell up to three inches, according to the South Florida Water Management District. The reverberations were felt for two hours.
“It shows that the flow in the aquifer is pretty fast, which is good and bad,” said University of Miami earthquake researcher Shimon Wdowinski. “It’s good because we can filter a lot of water through there. But it’s bad because in the case of pollution, it can travel very quickly.”
