Earthquake shakes the Shoalhaven.

The Shoalhaven News 1901.
A severe shock of earthquake was felt at Terrara and Numba on Oct 10the 1901.  All the storekeepers were made aware of the fact by the rattling of the crockery ware and a general shaking of the buildings.  In Jones’ store a large jar of salt fell from a shelf,  caused by the violence of the vibration,  whilst the doors of the building remained open were closed with a slam.  At Numba the clock of Mr. Alexander was stopped by the perceptible shaking of the house.   The vibration lasted for seven or eight seconds
Alcohol add that appeared in the local paper from the same time.
