Did You Feel Something Shake Near Whitehouse Last Night?
At around 6:40 p.m. last night (February 8), a member of our staff asked me, "Did you feel that just now?"
I answered, "No, I did not. But how did your shower glass spiderweb like that!?"
Apparently there may have been a small earthquake last night that affected Whitehouse, but it was so minor, it went unnoticed by most. Two other staff members corroborated the story, detailing what they experienced:
One person was in their garage with the door closed (no wind) and at around 6:40 p.m. one of his tools leaning on the wall fell over. He was standing across the room.
The second staffer said she heard a huge boom and thought it was the cold front coming in. But there was no cold front.
As of this moment, there have been no official reports of the earthquake, but maybe you felt something last night and just shrugged it off like most of us.
According to homefacts.com, Whitehouse, TX has a VERY low risk of earthquakes. In fact, the probability of a 5.0 or larger earthquake hitting Whitehouse within the next 50 years is .51%.
Earthquaketrack.com hasn't reported any earthquakes and the last one reported was three years ago in Timpson, TX. Tornadoes... on the other hand. Well, the yearly average is 2 in Whitehouse alone - though there weren't any in 2016.
Let us know if you felt something. Maybe we're just crazy radio people or some of our homes are just haunted.
