Chunks of Earth's Mantle Are 'Peeling Off'
An odd phenomenon may explain why the Southeastern United States has experienced recent earthquakes, even though the region sits snugly in the middle of a tectonic plate and not at the edges, where all the ground-shaking action usually happens.

This seismicity or relatively frequent earthquakes may be the result of areas along the bottom of the North American tectonic plate peeling off, the researchers said. And this peeling motion is likely to continue, leading to more earthquakes in the future, like the 2011 magnitude-5.8 temblor that shook the nation's capital.

Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.”
