MORGAN TOWNSHIP — Residents of Morgan Township who feel a “thump” through their feet, or feel their house shake for a second, should not be concerned. There are no bombs going off, although the vibrations are caused by small explosions.
Martinsburg Road resident Brian Gates told the News he had felt jolts at his house every 10 to 15 minutes one day and it sounded like “someone jumped on the ceiling of our house.”
