Known technically as cryoseism, frost quakes are a rare natural phenomena that occur when the temperature drops suddenly, causing moisture in the ground to freeze and expand. They can cause an earthquake-like rumble sometimes with loud, booming noises.
From a news item about cold weather in the U.S. I've never heard of either the word or the phenomenon.
Hmm--cryo I get, but --se-- ?
