Did you hear today’s blast? — 4 Comments

  1. Hi Britt. I experienced the ‘booms’ in Shirley, both inside and out. The ones inside were always strongest and often shook the windows, glass cabinets, and knocked Christmas cards off the mantle. Outside, it was more of a sound than something you would feel. In fact, the eagle in the tree was never disturbed, and a deer continued to feed. Experiencing it from inside the house was quite unsettling, to say the least. They lasted anywhere from 3-8 seconds and are the closest thing to an earthquake that I have experienced.

    So glad you were able to break the story on this, and give peace to so many area residents. I heard it first on the Sooke Pocket News!

    • Can’t say I “broke the story;” credit for that goes to former Mirror reporter (and excellent ongoing journalist), Shannon Moneo, who published a letter in the Mirror (“Mystery solved,” March 4, 2015). However, I’ll take the credit for sticking with it! Another update is in the works. Stay tuned!

  2. Totally sunny and nice today… earth still shook in Otter Point. I’m not buying the weather bit! 🙂
