Not sure what you mean by Dos attack - no good with computers, I just type on them. If you put it in kindergarten language I might understand but it does sound ominous. What does it suggest???edit on 9-9-2011 by quedup because: correction

Unbelievable! They hadn't had a quake since... I don't know... 900 AD??? It is indeed a highly unusual area to suffer a quake, so they could be completely unprepared... Thankfully, it was a small one. Hope everyone is alright. Thanks for the heads up OP! S&F
The shock was felt at 21:03 in large parts of the country . The police received many calls from concerned citizens, especially from Gelderland, Utrecht, Limburg and North Brabant, but also from the vicinity of The Hague. KNMI had until midnight 4000 reports of people who had felt the quake. The quake had a magnitude of 4.5 on the Richter scale. This is the third most violent earthquake in the Netherlands in the past one hundred years.
Fault Line: The epicenter was in Xanten, Germany, just across the border at Nijmegen. There is a break in the earth's crust that according to KNMI once every ten to twenty years has caused an earthquake. The worst earthquake ever struck the Netherlands in 1992 near Roermond. Which had a magnitude of 5.8. There were no casualties, but the damage in the Netherlands amounted to 77 million euros.
