How would the seperation between the p wave and s wave arrival at Savannah, GA compare to the data from the seismograph recorded in chicago, Il.

the recorded for the chicago is:

CHicago:
P wave arrival time: 08:57:45 pm
s wave arrival time: 09:02:05 pm
difference in arrival times:
00:02:20
distance to epicenter: 3000 km
