“This chandelier only sits on a hook, but it had fallen down,” said Merry Humphrey.
The most damage was in an upstairs bedroom. The ceiling was already cracked before the quake, but is worse off now.
“The force of whatever shook the other day made it come down all the way,” said Humphrey.
Her home was built in the 18th century.
“Of course, being an old house we have cracks everywhere,” said Humphrey. “I can’t really blame the earthquake.”
Earthquake experts say it takes stronger earthquakes than we’ve had to cause new cracks.
“Damage starts around magnitude 5, so 3.3 is just a rumble and a shake,” said Dr. John Ebel of the Weston Observatory. “It’s a point of interest but not anything that would cause damage.”
Dr. Ebel says a lot needs to be looked at to determine if earthquake insurance is worth it. While it is cheap in this part of the country, there is a five-percent deductible based off the value of you house.
