Club Penguin Wiki

Earthquakes were an unnatural event caused by Herbert P. Bear using his Earthquake Driller in June 2008. He damaged much of central Club Penguin Island and some of the underground rooms. His goal was to use the drill to break into the Boiler Room to steal the boiler to use for warmth, with the earthquakes and their aftershocks serving as a distraction for agents.
