Another month, another earthquake near Darmstadt. Waiting for the big one now.
We both registered it differently, Jr. said the ground was rumbling and going up and down for a few seconds, including a low vibrating sound. I thought a truck drove by and went through a bump, then realized that where we were there are no trucks at all.
This is how it sounded like:
About 80 houses were damaged; mainly roofs and chimneys that fell off.
So.. is it the Grube Messel (Messel Pit) Vulcano that’s waking up? Or is it the Supervulcano in Koblenz underneath the Laacher See that is waking up?

Well, one thing is certain: A lot is moving and changing around us with the earth these days.
