Hello All!

In addition to the afore-mentioned AUTHENTICATED falls, there are
three doubtful cases, two of which are mentioned in Chladni's "Die
Feuer-Meteore, Wien, 1819":

1) Brussels (One stone is said to have fallen: Chladni)
2) Charleroi (Several stones, weighing up to 8 lb, fell: Chladni)
3) Mons (Several stones, up to 1 lb in weight, are said to have fallen,
    G. von Boguslawski, Ann. Phys. Chem. (Poggendorff), 1854,
    4,(suppl.), p. 9, but the evidence is not conclusive.

Best wishes,
