The day it rained bricks

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - EARTHQUAKE - THE VICTIMS -

SCOTT KEELER was wo­ken as his bed be­gan to shake vi­o­lently.

He had been look­ing for­ward to a lie-in on Satur­day morn­ing, but could not be­lieve his eyes when he parted the cur­tains and saw his chim­ney pot hit­ting the gar­den.

He said: “It was rain­ing bricks. It was a re­ally fright­en­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

Very scared

“We live on the cor­ner of Gar­den Road and I guess our house may be weaker than the oth­ers. We seem to have more dam­age than our neigh­bours.

“We have three sons and they were very scared. One ran out in the street in his boxer shorts in fear.

“It is quite un­be­liev­able that this could have hap­pened in Folkestone.”
