Magnitude ML 5.0
Region FRANCE
Date time 2016-04-28 06:46:50.4 UTC
Location 46.04 N ; 1.09 W
Depth 10 km

I was trying to find how common large earthquakes are in france when I came across the 1580 Dover Straits earthquake estimated to be between 5.3 and 5.9.




Further from the coast, furniture danced on the floors and wine casks rolled off their stands. The belfry of Notre Dame de Lorette and several buildings at Lille collapsed. Stones fell from buildings in Arras, Douai, Béthune and Rouen. Windows cracked in the cathedral of Notre Dame at Pontoise, and blocks of stone dropped ominously from the vaulting. At Beauvais, the bells rang as though sounding the tocsin.

In Flanders, chimneys fell and cracks opened in the walls of Ghent and Oudenarde. Peasants in the fields reported a low rumble and saw the ground roll in waves.

On the English coast, sections of wall fell in Dover and a landslip opened a raw new piece of the White Cliffs. At Sandwich a loud noise emanated from the Channel, as church arches cracked and the gable end of a transept fell at St Peter's Church. Near Hythe, Kent, Saltwood Castle — made famous as the site where the plot was hatched in December 1170 to assassinate Thomas Becket — was rendered uninhabitable until it was repaired in the 19th century.

In London, half a dozen chimney stacks and a pinnacle on Westminster Abbey came down; two children were killed by stones falling from the roof of Christ's Church Hospital. Indeed, many Puritans blamed the emerging theatre scene of the time in London, which was seen as the work of the Devil, as a cause of the quake.[8] There was damage far inland, inCambridgeshire, where stones fell from Ely Cathedral. Part of Stratford Castle in Essexcollapsed.

In Scotland, a local report of the quake disturbed the adolescent James VI, who was informed that it was the work of the Devil.[9]





I had no idea it was possible for earthquakes that size to hit England and I wonder what the damage would be if it happened today.

We've had a few in the last decade actually, all minor, causing a few chimneys to topple. I think the only one I have felt here was a 3 or a 4. That actually woke me up and I heard everything rattling and doors banging for maybe 5 seconds.

The problem here is that we haven't built for it. If we experienced a 5 or 6 there would likely be widespread damage because we just don't have the structures designed to withstand it in any way.

And remember that back in 1580 the population of this country was FAR smaller with little towns and villages, and London being the largest city but still only predominantly 1, 2 or 3 storey buildings.

When you compare our situation to nations like Japan, even though they have built to withstand large quakes and even though many of their simple houses are top heavy and at risk of a collapse, many of their traditional buildings are actually designed to withstand them too. This region has always been active and when you see the temples shaking in a quake, the buildings hundreds of years old, you can see that even though they look precarious, the people who built them knew what they were doing.

So, Japan has three stages of EQ endurance when it comes to buildings. Their oldest seem able to withstand them, then they went through a considerable period of building homes unable to withstand large quakes, and then they've gone through a period of all modern buildings being able to withstand them too.

Many of the more dangerous houses built in neighbourhoods in Japan are not resistant to quakes (with heavy tiled roofs on spindly supports easily rocked sideways) but this is because people became complacent - in the same way people everywhere do.

They also have something called Tsunami Stones, carved warnings created possibly hundreds of years ago telling people not to build beyond a certain point. They knew that people would forget, that people would go back to the coasts, that people would probably start building in dangerous areas again, and they tried to warn people knowing that this information could be lost.

Unfortunately, a 5 or 6 hitting the UK would be a real disaster, thankfully they are incredibly rare here and none of us are likely to see one in our lifetimes.

I don't think we really have much to fear seismically (UK). Our rocks are some of the oldest on the planet (which is why our mountains are so small). We are obviously still suffering from glacial rebound, and likely will be for a few thousand years yet but on the whole we are geologically a "safe" area.

What we are far more at risk from is tsunami risk, both from the North Atlantic but also (and in my mind more importantly) from the subduction fault off the coast of Portugal (great Lisbon earthquake of 1755). Recent research has revealed this fault is capable of megathrust activity - which warrants further research as far as im concerned!

ANGOULINS (17690) there was a very strong explosion (never heard a very loud explosion age: 73 years) with a major vibration amplitude .My home is concrete block formwork. E
ANGOULINS (17690) unlike previous earthquakes: -very short -no "rumble" serious -bruit -l'impression a "current" passes directly under the house -no harbinger -réaction "physical" (my body) very strong

AYTRE (17440) First I thought it was a plane crash, since the noise came from above rather then to a gas explosion, it lasted two to three seconds
AYTRE (17440) vers8h45 two absolutely huge explosions as a chemical plant or a nearby house that would have shattered. The first explosion stronger second to 0.5 second only slightly lower than the first but still very strong. everyone immediately out of the houses in this residential area. little fire siren; we were surprised because we thought many died in an explosion may be at Alsthom?

I'm going to take a minute and say I am wrong. I thought there would be a big cluster after the lunar peak. So there.

I don't mind admitting I'm wrong. I'm wrong, I hate it. Nah, that's wrong. If I learn something I'm okay with it.

However, as I alluded to, I think this is a two cycle, which means there is a still one more lunar peak. On May 6 we have a new moon at a close perigee. Maybe nothing will happen and I can shut up.

mainly because the epicentre was below land, not sea.
I would say it would have to be a M8.0+ to displace the land so much that it caused a tsunami 1-3m high, even in the other coastal Vanuatu islands
depends on the shapes of the coast I guess, pretty open area in this case.

I just added it to the Significant EQ blog, along with 4 others above 6.5, been away or busy lately.
We are up to 20,323 Kilo Tons of TNT for 2016, mainly because of those two 7.8's

Yes that 7.0 yesterday has set off a new series centered around Malakula Island.
The earlier April ones were north of Espiritu Santo is.

I was working on my Vanuatu page yesterday 2011-2016, when I suddenly realized that the all pre 2011 maps I did were just for the South Hebrides Trench, not for all of Vanuatu (New Hebrides). It's mind boggling how many big quakes they get there.
I remember those two big 7.5+ quakes in 2009, same area as Aprils events.
Crikey I could just do a whole blog on Vanuatu.
Vanuatu has been cut off from the World partly due to that Cyclone Pam in 2015, tourism taking a big hit (was 65^ of GDP), Port Vila airport runway repairs have just started this last week by a NZ contractor after many delays. They are shipping in cold asphalt, as there are no hot asphalt plants on the islands.
