    Hello everyone I'm new to the area and I understand that there is a lot of "bomb testing" that goes on at Eglin AFB. However, there was a loud boom and my house shook for about five seconds today. Afterwards, I've noticed structural damage to my house...ceiling has hairline cracks and a huge crack on the concrete floor in my garage!! Does any of this sound familiar?? Any advice and comments would be appreciated :cool: Thanks

    Yes, that was bombing at Eglin. It happens quite a lot so unless your house was just completed it is likely the cracks were already there. Stress cracks in concrete slabs are common and are caused by settling. However if you think yours looks like something more than common you can have an engineer check it out.
