We have received alarming reports of a mysterious rumbling phenomenon being experienced in wards all over the district. Nothing is known but reports started coming in at approximately 2pm on 8th April describing rumbling, popping sounds, fizzing, air pockets, tweeting, and laughter whistling through the air. The Open Council is urging members to take the usual panic refrain measures until the cause of the disturbance has been identified but we can confirm that the phenomenon reported thus far does not appear to be harmful and has actually been described as causing pleasant warm sensations and relief. The current advice is to stay indoors.
