Earthquake tremor… in London!

I thought I was losing my marbles about half an hour ago when the house started shaking. It couldn’t be an earthquake, surely? Not in Britain?

Well, apparently it was: Earth tremor felt across England [BBC News]

UPDATE: Apparently the epicentre was a little south of Kingston-upon-Hull. In the excitement I filed a witness report for the US Geological Survey. Summay details: Magnitude 4.7 – ENGLAND, UNITED KINGDOM [US Geoglogical Survey].

  • There are generally around 200 earthquakes in Britain every year although only around 20 are felt by people.
