I thought a poltergiest was shaking my bed when I woke up in the middle of the quake that hit there haha
Whist I may not agree that "something is brewing", it's absolutely ridiculous to suggest that no significant seismic events happen in the UK. A 7.5 meter high tsunami, probably in relation to an active fault line off the Irish coast, killed thousands of people in the area where I live in 1607. Considering how sparse the population was back then, if this event were to be replayed tomorrow many, many more thousands would undoubtedly be killed as much of the land is below sea level.

The chance of a significant earthquake event in the UK is (er) nil. The UK is not on any significant fault lines. It is just the way it is. The last earthquake to get a mention in the press cracked a chimney pot and a dog was reported to have barked "very loudly".
Earthquakes happen all the time. The earth moves. Destructive earthquakes happen on fault lines.
So what could be causing all that chaos we see on the helicorder plot?
And, it was not only property that was hit by the quake, as chicken farmer Peter Sargent discovered when he checked on his poultry at Usselby, near Market Rasen – which was just one field away from the epicentre. He said: "I went into the shed as normal and there, in one corner, were 72 dead birds without a mark on them. "I am convinced they flocked to one corner when the ground shook and died of suffocation and fright."
