Earth Quake tips from US Geological Survey

Dear NYLS Community,

As you may have experienced, around 10:23 a.m. today a 4.8 magnitude earthquake affected the region, including our campus. The US Geological Survey is reporting that the epicenter was about 50 miles west of NYC. The quake was felt up and down much of the East Coast.

Everyone on campus is safe and there are no reports of damage. We will monitor the situation and provide further updates as needed.

For reference, here are tips from the US Geological Survey on best practices to remain safe during an earthquake. Thank you and stay safe!
