Like dominoes, they fall

Houses like Dominos

First, it was just one house sagging a little. Marshland underneath, solid foundations but nothing underneath it.

Later on, one by one, the neighbouring houses slipped along — in an eternally slow, infinitely gradual domino topple.

Not that the inhabitants let it bother them. San Francisco earthquakes happen on a swifter timescale than this.
