A USGS campaign to educate the public about earthquake hazards has been an overwhelming success, officials report. Since May 21, more than 15,000 calls have poured in from around the United States requesting free info on earthquake mitigation and emergency preparedness. The ABC World of Discovery Special, “Earthquakes: The Terrifying Truth,” which aired on the 21st, was set up in tandem with the toll-free number, 1-800-TREMOR2.
