Up to 10 minor earthquakes rumble across central Georgia every year, according to Andrew Newman, associate professor of geophysics in the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences. The latest, a 2.4 magnitude quake, hit the area near Sparta in early April. That prompted Macon CBS affiliate WMAZ to ask Newman: Could a much larger earthquake strike central Georgia in the future?
