I'm down in the South West. I didn't feel anything. I think I'm too far down anyway.
I've never felt an earthquake, and I hope I never have to.
It's rare we get them in England though.

EDIT: It was in my part of the country but I didn't feel anything.

Britain actually gets hit quite often, by quakes that is. Most of them, the vast majority, are far too weak to be felt, leave alone do any actual damage. However, the strongest seismic activity this country has had since records of such things began, was in 1931 and had a measurement of 6.1 on the relevant scale.

Other notable events can be found in British history for quakes, but obviously we never get anything absolutely ruinous. That being said, its rumoured that we are over due a "big" (geological context is important here) shunt here, so maybe something like this is just a precursor?

In any case, it very probably was a quake, but its no reason to expect the end of the world... However, if you have an emergency kit bag, might be wise to make sure its got a hard hat in it

If you are near the ocean, check if waters retreated. ASAP.



It was a 4.7, that's nothing. I live in So Cali, and it would take at least a 7 to issue a tsunami warning.

Usually, it takes an earthquake with a Richter magnitude exceeding 7.5 to produce a destructive tsunami. Most tsunamis are generated by shallow, great earthquakes at subductions zones. More than 80% of the world's tsunamis occur in the Pacific along its Ring of Fire subduction zones.

That's because we don't live on a fault line , although not rare 4.7 is quite strong for our little island.

I don't think there is any scientific evidence linking Earthquakes to Solar activity so I doubt today's Earthquake is connected.

I dunno about EQ, any "Fracking" going on there?

You beat me to the punch. The difference being my version would have been sarcastic...instead of literal.

No problem mate , yeah Earthlights are a curious phenomenon , I believe there's a theory they may be something to do with quartz in the local rocks.

Lot of old mines in that area....so anybody's guess as to what caused it

10km is a very shallow depth.....but it's not old welsh mine shaft shallow. If any mines got to that depth then the Welsh are really dwarves!

Looks like it didn't go much farther west than Wales,I never felt a thing though



The epicentre was approximately 20km north-north-east of Swansea and at a depth of 7.4km, (BBC)

I know Aberdeen felt an Earthquake from the North Sea back in the 1980's. It was a sudden sharp "bang" that was felt by every house in the city. Made every door and window frame rattle.
