THE ROCK BURST OF 1952 IN KGF

This is an old newspaper clipping showing pictures of the devastation caused by the massive Air Blast / Rock Burst in 1952. St Mary's Church, the Priests House, The Convent and school of St Joseph of Tarbes which were all housed in the same compound were completely destroyed. The Church was later rebuilt and renamed as Our Lady of Victories Church while the St Joseph's Convent was shifted to the Bungalow of Mr Arthur Taylor in Champion Reefs where it is still in existence.
