Earthquake in Dundry???

Post by Holger Laux » Sat 17 Feb, 2018 5:02 pm

A few nights ago, about midnight, we heard a dark, loud boom that sounded like an underground explosion or a cannon shot but were too much asleep to take much notice.

However, today at about 2.30pm, our whole house shook and swayed. This was not just our imagination. Other neighbours in the Crabtree area felt it as well.

Have you noticed anything?
