Profound vibrations

I thought the new streetcar line stopped before it got to the Healing Center. In any case, the people down there are very attuned to the vibes.
The headquarters of the Vieux Carre Property Owners, Residents and Associates at 816 N. Rampart has been experiencing “profound vibrations” during the construction, and on at least one occasion vibrations were so bad that equipment was visibly shaking in the office, Meg Lousteau, executive director of the organization, told the Vieux Carre Commission last week.

“We are in the block where everything began, so everything that’s happened in our block will happen to all the other blocks in the Quarter, Marigny and Treme as the work moves down the line,” Lousteau said.
But, really, there's no story here.  Nothing is reported damaged. No buildings are collapsing or anything.  Some people got a little nervous when they heard a noise, basically.   But that's an issue for another time.
