Did you feel that BOOM?

Published: Sat, December 31, 2011 @ 3:18 p.m.

Vindicator staffers from Niles, Canfield, Boardman, Poland and at our downtown plant all felt that shudder and boom at about 3:05 p.m.

We are checking right now to see if this was another earthquake.

Leave a comment to share your experiences, report damage or if you have any idea as to what that BOOM! was.

Yes, Felt The Boom ...I was in Portage County at the time and felt the shake. Near 76 and St Rt 14. Lasting 3-5 seconds.

WHAT AN AFTERNOON! At 3:00PM today my steady and I were just getting relaxed. At 3:04PM it was euphoria and an earth shaking moment! The timing couldn't have been better!

You can tell your own story of all these unusual quakes at this address:

They are compiling first hand accounts of people in "fracking" communities (like ours) that have witnessed any ill effects.

I know some people on here will debate me about whether or not the fracking caused the 11 quakes we've had this year... But one thing is certain: among the many nicknames that were awarded Youngstown in the 20th century, we're due for our first from the 21st century, Quake Town!

Business as usual....the fracking will continue until we have a major catastrophe.
