West Virginia is expected to get 13 or 14 earthquake monitors this summer, West Virginia Public Radio reported last week.
The stations will remain in place for two years under the EarthScope program.
It is a venture of the Incorporated Reserach Institutions for Seismology and the National Science Foundation.
The program got under way in 2004 with the installation of small seismic stations on a grid across the United States. The program is moving the array from west to east.
