Parking garage collapsed with my car on it!

Well that's a new one. That's my VW in the middle. Parked a few spots over from my normal one this morning. Would have been fine in the normal spot.

Holy shit. What a fucking sketchy "parking garage". Hopefully the only injuries were to those vehicles.

Was there an earthquake reported? Or maybe there have been enough of them in the area in the past to have weakened it. Let us know what they find out in the investigation.

Yep, lots of previous fracking quakes. One 5.0. Nothing reported today, but prior damages seem rather likely.

No one hurt, thankfully.

Las Colinas? I saw that on my WFAA app. The ground in that area is known for being unstable. Trust me, you don't want a house in that area.

Sorry for your car. I'd bet the building has insurance.

If you had 4wd you could have pulled right out and not paid.

That said fracking is going to be causing all kinds of new phenomena.

Wow. It may be awhile before the owners of the undamaged cars can get them back.

Yeah, three weeks is the current estimate. They let a few cars out, but the rest are probably there for the duration.
