Ok, that doesn’t seem like much, but i was wondering , at what point
(or Richter scale number?) do structures in the area suffer structural changes?
I am sure there are multiple variables, such as soil type, type of foundation, age, etc. Reports are saying it was felt from Wisconsin to Tennessee.
Another question is: does this mean that a home we previously inspected may now have a structural issue? That must change liability somehow.
How will this effect Radon levels?
So i’m sure there was a fault line some where in the area, and i’m thinking there will be more elevated levels or Radon found there because of the geological changes. Opening more cracks in a foundation or floor?
(western suburbs of Chicago-land are very often found to have higher levels) But so far it is unknown how an earthquake will effect radon levels.
What are your thoughts and comments on this?
