Quake

Hardly earth-shattering (sorry) news I know, but what the below image indicates is that at 5.15pm local time an earthquake of 4.6 magnitude hit the region. The epicentre was 195km from Kampala under Lake Victoria. The window panes were rattling over here in Kamwokya but fortunately the rumblings were no match for the sturdy foundations of an ex-Kampala City Council flat. Now if only they could put the same effort into their roads...

There were earth tremors in Kampala? I work in Kamwokya and I didn't feel a thing. Strange.
