Rare seismic quake rattles buildings and nerves in Finland

December 1, 2011FINLANDA mild earth tremor measuring 2.8 on the Richter scale was experienced on Thursday morning in Kouvola in southeast Finland. Seismologists say the tremor is the most powerful one measured this year in Finland. The epicenter of Thursday’s tremor was at Kuusaanlampi and close to the Kuusanniemi Paper and Pulp Mill operated by UPM Kymmene. Eyewitnesses reported a loud bang with the earth and buildings shaking. The earth also moved in Kouvola two months ago. In October, local residents felt a tremor measuring less than two on the Richter scale. Last March a 2.8 magnitude tremor was felt in the Uusimaa province of southern Finland. The Department of Seismology at the University of Helsinki said tremors of this magnitude are rather unusual in southern Finland. Earth tremors are usually detected in northern parts of the country. –Uutiset

    Here we go …tremors in unusual places. Well..honestly ..if I have to die I would rather die from a natural disaster than suffer from some NWO paranoia about people..take a look a this in the news today…do these businesses have contracts with the government..because it would be illegal for a business alone to monitor somone without their consent ..right? http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/11/30/carrier-iq-trevor-eckhart_n_1120727.html?ref=technology&icid=maing-grid7%7Cmaing6%7Cdl1%7Csec1_lnk3%7C116806
