Very interesting. And thanks for linking it.

I think there were only a few earthquake deaths in the UK over the past few hundred years or so...I'll have to look that up. S + F

Are they common in your area? Up in the Copper Country they called little ones like those mine blasts from caving in mines. Thirty years later they say that some might have been small quakes but they were denied at the time as being anything other than mine blasts.

LoL well we do have some large deep clay pits, which they filled in with refuse and built a Tesco on, otherwise no mining!

For a second I thought it was an independence day thing, how embarassing...

I lived in L.A. for a few years. The tremblers would wait until I was consulting with Mr. Crapper or in the shower.

No further 'consultations' were required for a few days....

Small earthquakes happen very often in the UK, but are mostly unnoticed.

Here is a list of ''significant'' UK earthquakes more than magnitude 4. The highest magnitude listed is 6.1 at 23km in the North Sea in 1931. The earliest date mentioned is 1382.

Also the 50 most recent UK earthquakes, the lowest magnitude 0.4, the highest being todays at magnitude 3.8 at 8km.

Yes indeedy, pleased to meet you. Nothing ever happens here apart from continously digging up the town centre for three years.

I can relate to that. I lived in Japan for a couple of years. Every time there was an earthquake, it seems I was always on the john. It became a running joke.

I've been through three major quakes (6.0 or higher on the Richter scale), and numerous smaller tremors. The base I was stationed on had a fault line running right through it.

Image it with Oh…….. But we have always had small earthquakes that most don't notice due to the lie of the land itself.

Nope, did not know that. Personally think the place is getting worse.

Aren't they weird? I felt one years ago (epicentre approx 1.5 miles from my house at time) in North Yorks......it struck just as i was getting into an episode of the X Files (1st series i think, just to date it!). Felt like heavy goods wagon going through the room and the walls shook.

To our ATS friends around the world, it may only be a 3.8 mag but we don't get them so to us it's extremely exciting and unusual! In point of fact, 3.8 is a biggie for us, they are usually lower than 2 mag - this is our Tohoku quake!

When I lived there in 2012 I always got them in the night.
Every time I panicked, the Japanese would just keep sleeping.... apparently 5.0 are not really worrisome for them.
For me, I never experienced earthquakes, it felt like the world is going to end.
