The weekend earthquake in North Carolina has experts talking about more to come.

Although seismologists say it is extremely rare for earthquakes to hit the east coast, aftershocks should be expected after yesterday’s magnitude 5.1 shaker in North Carolina. NC State University Geologist Del Bohnenstiehl shares that at least a dozen have already been detected.

He and others are trying to figure out how the temblor happened. Bohnenstiehl also says that although it’s rare, there is the possibility that Sunday’s quake was a foreshock of a larger one to come.
