“I was standing on a chair and shaking with fear, thinking that the floor was going to crumble and the house would collapse. I was pondering how. to leave the house, fearing I might fall through the floor.”

The woman sought help from her neighbours, who informed her that such explosions were a common occurrence in the area.

“Our neighbours said it’s normal here, their house had experienced this twice, and so had other houses in the neighbourhood.
