I apparently slept through a 3.2 Earthquake that rocked the Eastern part of Cornwall. Social media is stirring with people asking others if they felt the tremblor?
Our region has frequent rumbles, but we have never had a “Big One”. The 3.2 quake was centered only a few kilometers from Cornwall. LINK A 3.2 magnitude quake would be sorta equal to standing too close to Rick Shaver after the VIP tent would close at Lift Off. The largest quake in recent memory was the 5.0 one that we felt in 2010.
Speaking of Lift Off, Terry Muir announced the final demise to Cornwall’s signature tourism event.
The event which at its peak drew over 50,000 people is done sadly. Muir took over the chair last year and cancelled the 2015 event and gave it the kill shot to finish it off. Muir had been a co-founder of Ribfest, ( A greasy over priced mess with really bad cover bands, but has free admission so people think they’re actually getting something for nothing other than potential botulism) and was also a key player in the Santa Clause parade that this year drew controversy over the Legion’s historic role in our event.
You have to wonder what the Kinsmen and City Hall are thinking to allow our event to perish?
Did you feel the earthquake Cornwall? Any damage? Post your pics and comments below.
