At 00:54 on Monday 23 September an earthquake measuring 4.8 on the
Richter scale hit Dudley,UK causing untold disruption and distress.

Many were woken well before their giro arrived
Several priceless collections of mementos from the Balearics and Spanish costas         

were damaged
Three areas of historic and scientifically significant litter were disturbed
Thousands are confused and bewildered, trying to come to terms with the
 fact that something interesting has happened in Dudley

 One resident, Donna-Marie Dutton, a 17 year old mother-of-three said "It
 was such a shock, little Chantal-Leanne came running into my bedroom
 crying. My youngest two, Tyler-Morgan and Megan-Storm slept through it. I
 was still shaking when I was watching Trisha the next morning."

 Apparently though, looting did carry on as normal.

 The British Red Cross have so far managed to ship 4000 crates of Sunny
 Delight to the area to help the stricken masses.
 Rescue workers are still searching through the rubble and have found
 large quantities of personal belongings including benefit books and jewellery
 from Elizabeth Duke at Argos.
