Delaware is not in a seismically active region but, even here, earthquakes occur because of sudden adjustments in the earth's crust. Even though such movements can be startling they yield important information about the behavior of the earth and the potential for future events. The Delaware Geological Survey continually monitors seismicity in the State because of both the scientific value of the information and to help address the concern of residents and other agencies over possible effects.
