SC has a history of earthquakes, and we have even had a big one in Charleston that leveled half of the city.

You can still see many remnants of the earthquake, while walking through the peninsula. Many old building and homes have large screw-like structures sticking out of the outer walls. These are what they used to press the fractured walls back together following the quake. Crazy stuff to think about. You have to remember, the Earth beneath us is always in motion. I was in Richmond during that larger quake that hit a couple years ago. Pretty strange feeling, when you are on the 4th floor of a semi-tall building. That swaying feel just isn't comforting.
