A two-year program run by the National Science Foundation will install as many as 14 seismic monitoring devices in West Virginia this summer.

One or more of those devices will likely be installed in Braxton County, following a series of small earthquakes that have struck the area.

The EarthScope program will then gather data for two years and is looking for landowners to participate.
