Tuesday evening, March 20th, 8:11 p.m. We experienced an earthquake. This was confimed by Tim Lancsek in Kitty Hawk and Tim Yewcic in Salvo. There was a rumbling of the earth. Then it stopped. Then the house was shaking. Then it stopped. And started again.
The official word is that it was a sonic boom from military jets, but if they aren't allowed to fly with sonic booms in populated areas, why does this continue to happen?
The news has been inundated lately with reports that the Outer Banks is one of the most dangerous places to live, that we will be flooded out with global warming, etc. There is a fault line off the coast. Why wouldn't it be possible/probable that we have been having earthquake tremors?
