4.8 earthquake jolts Split!


Today around 2:00PM, the sound of cannons in the basement rumbled through the historic old town of Split sending people out into the street–earthquake!!  Centered around 11km from the heart of Split, the jolt was palpable, lasting 4 or 5 seconds.  With the exception of a crack in one of the main streets in town and some popped windows, nothing serious, but with the recent Italian quakes that caused real damage, another reminder that sometimes Mother Nature gets angry–even here in quiet, sunny Split!

No, this is not downtown Split, but it sure is an amazing earthquake photo!
