Another Hazardous Day

We're on the frontline of journalism here at Helltowns newsdesk and after yesterdays earthquake everyone is preparing for the next disaster. Hard hats and gas masks may become mandatory.

Yesterday morning we experienced the strongest earthquake in Sweden since 1904. It was a 4.7 on the Richter scale and lasted about 30 seconds.

I woke up when my bed started to shake and for a moment there I thought the house was falling apart.
According to local newspapers the damages include a broken gingerbread house, a few cracks in a staircase and one or two traumatized cats.

Scary!

I'm glad to see that a little thing like an earthquake isn't stopping journalists from getting on with the business of gathering news.
