The city was rattled by a moderate earthquake. Commuters noticed more shake than usual on the trains, traffic policemen fell off their podiums, and a glass tankard was broken at the Dog and Digitiser.

The Geological Survey announced that, strangely, the centre of the disturbance was measured to be at or very near to ground level. Sometime later, scientists noticed that the object appeared to be sitting further into the ground than before but they couldn't decide whether this was as a result of the earthquake or whether the object caused it as it settled.
