Oklahoma couple trying to earthquake-proof home
An Oklahoma couple is trying to earthquake-proof their home after their house was destroyed in the record-breaking quake back in 2011.
All it took was a minor adjustment to the exterior wall of their home.
You probably wouldn’t notice it; it blends right into the brick mortar of this small-town home.
It’s a subtle adjustment that could have a huge impact.
So far it is working.
Jimmy and Margaret Snyder lost their home of 40 years after a tremor compromised its structure.
Two years later they have rebuilt and haven’t felt the earth move beneath them since.
Builders said they can make a small adjustment to your home that just might save it from earthquake damage.
