Quake

We just had a minor tremor. No news as yet, but it's been felt from London to Derbyshire, and across most of england.

House shook, stuff fell off walls. my friend 20 miles away in a very thin towerblock of flats couldnt stand up as her stuff fell around her.

We don't get many in the uk. once every few years we get something that can be felt.

I'm googling around but not getting much.

This is going to be interesting.

Earthquake felt across much of UK


The biggest earthquake in the UK for nearly 25 years has shaken homes across large parts of the country.

People in Newcastle, Yorkshire, London, Cumbria, the Midlands, Norfolk and also parts of Wales, felt the tremor just before 0100 GMT.

A man suffered a broken pelvis when a chimney collapsed in South Yorkshire.

The British Geological Survey (BGS) said the epicentre of the 5.2 magnitude quake was near Market Rasen in Lincolnshire.

Student David Bates, 19, suffered a broken pelvis when he was pinned under masonry in his attic bedroom in Barnsley Road, Wombwell, South Yorks.

His father Paul Bates said: "There was a rumble and then we heard a bang and my son screaming 'Dad'."

His son was taken to hospital and was due to undergo surgery later.

that'd be interesting...

mostly the shock is with the fact we're right in the middle of a major plate and as the article says, it's the biggest one we've had in 25 years over here. we do get minor ones but theyre ones hardly big enough to register, and only end up sending an extra ripple across your fish tank or bathwater.

Well I am kinda not surprised. In the other quake thread I posted a link for something called the New Madrid Quake Zone, which lies south of where I live. It is in the middle of the plate, and is still suject to earthquake activity
