(NEWS CENTER) - Here in Maine we have to deal with blizzards, the occasional tornado, maybe a hurricane every twenty years or so. But earthquakes?

You only have to worry about earthquakes if you live in Los Angeles or San Francisco, right? Wrong.

Kathryn Miles is a writer from South Portland, and she spent the last few years looking into what would happen if a powerful earthquake struck not just in California, but in other places in the U.S.

Her new book is called "Quakeland: On the Road to America's Next Devastating Earthquake," For more information about the book, CLICK HERE.
