Pressure wave' shakes region
December 5th, 2009
THOUSANDS of North Coast residents had a supersonic awakening on Thursday night as a suspected ‘pressure wave’ from a military jet hit the region just before 10 o’clock.
Reports of windows rattling and walls shaking from Coffs Harbour to Tweed Heads, and as far inland as the Border Ranges, came through The Northern Star switchboard throughout the day yesterday as people tried to find out what had happened. Talkback radio and internet chatrooms also went into overdrive.
