About 10-15 minutes ago my house just shook and there was a small rumble too. It lasted about 2-3 seconds. According to my FB news feed many other people felt it too. I am in Nottinghamshire.

Did we just have a small Earthquake?

Can't find a registry yet. Only thing close was in Iceland..a 4.4 according to RSOE. At 4:52 local time Iceland.

Surely you couldn't have felt that..

probably as theres actually quite a few that happen every year, doesnt help that pretty much the place is full of mine shafts as well so when they settle it moves a bit causing a bit of trouble,but most are in the 1-2 range so basically things get bounced about a bit and thats it but the main thing is ...were you upto anything "naughty" and did the earth move for you

Maybe something blew up? ....I'm not seeing anything on "USGS Earthquake "site....only Iceland and Pakistan...but I doubt you'd feel it.

According to UK geological service it measured 1.3

Edit - sorry, source was from the last Earthquake you had in June this year.

Here’ s the Helicorder from the British Geological Survey ???

Could it have been an explosion?

Locals are saying it was a bit of a tremor.

I posted because it's just so unusual to feel such things where I live.

Like Maxatoria said.
You do get them..

I was a bit surprised ..
I thought the UK never got them..
I'm curious of the source and magnitude.

Here in the U.S. I never felt one unless it was a 3.0 or higher.. unless it was very shallow ..
If its something else.. then stay safe.

Maybe UK gets small EQ from time to time due to caves collapsing.

BBC Radio Nottingham has a fb page and they've just posted that they're receiving reports of a tremor ...


BBC Radio Nottingham

Reports coming into BBC Radio Nottingham of an earth tremor in Nottinghamshire. We're confirming it at the moment - but did you feel the earth move? and where?

Here is an article from January of 2014
Claiming:
“Britains Earthquake Capital Sleepy Nottinghamshire” blaming it back in January on mining.

HOW MINING CAN CAUSE EARTHQUAKES
Earthquakes are usually the result of a slip along per-existing faults in the earth.
According to the British Geological Survey, human activities, including mining, can change the state of stress near faults.
Likely causes of changing stress are the ‘removal of sub-surface rock', or it can also be caused 'by the collapse of old mine workings, which can move the faults closer to failure and result in induced earthquakes’.
The body says: ‘This process is only likely to affect faults within relatively small distances of the stress perturbation and mining induced earthquakes generally within of a few kilometres of the mining activity.
‘Similarly, sometimes the induced events occur shortly after the mining activity begins, but in other cases they happen long after it has ceased.’

Maybe some tech coming back from the Middle East? My odds are that Zaphod will have an ear to the ground on this one if so.

I'm in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire and didn't feel anything yet friends on Facebook who live in Kirkby-in-Ashfield are reporting tremors.

These low frequency rumbles, accompanied by shaking, have been felt around the world. Many are earthquakes, but many are not.

This low level rumbling sound has been heard in areas that don't typically sustain earthquakes, and have been sometimes linked to possible Fracking sites, but nothing conclusive has been proved.

It's a big mystery.

If it's not linked to one of these rumblings, it could have been a earthquake.
