3.6 Earthquake Rocks Devon And Cornwall UK

Rachel Parsley, said she thought she was going to die.
"It just started to get louder and louder. The room shook. I actually felt the beams were moving, you could hear the roof moving, and it then passed on through.

Mini Tsunami hits UK

The South Coast of the UK has only just experienced a mini tsunami , and this is the third sizable earthquake in this normally stable region in 10 days. A 2.7 quake alarmed residents in Devon on only the 23rd of June.
Are these earthquakes getting more frequent and more dangerous all the time? This is starting to scare people : a baitdigger on the coast at marazion ran in fear for his life when he turned around to see the tide 50 yards further out from where it had been just behind him moments earlier.
This latest quake, accompanied by roaring like a sonic boom may be just a taste of what is to come, even to England, as comet Elenin swings in ever closer to our planet.

What the hell has a comet got to do with earthquakes. ?

You must have put this in here just to self destruct the thread. You also must be new, or not at all that bright or do not read very much.

there are many threads on Elenin. do your seaerch first before posting this garbage.

This is a small earthquake anyway as in suprising that anyone actually felt it. Yes Cornwell is a little town and people are not used to earthquakes.. Hopefully they will have a cup of tea and get over it.

Yes, if you are unfamiliar with earthquakes, even a 3.6 can be a big bump. As I've experienced that and up to 5.2, it certainly is an eye-opener for the uninitiated.

Hope that's the largest you'll endure.

Cornwall is not a town man, it's a county...



ETA: In fact, it's one of the most beautiful counties in England. Small EQs always shock us brits, we aren't used to them.

A 3.6 is quite a big shake for the UK.

Although there seems to be no other source for this 3.6 quake other than the Daily Mail article.

Here's the only earthquake i could find in Devon, which was on the 23rd of June 2011 and was a 2.7.

British Geological Survey

Pretty shallow though.

You know I had a dream a last week about an earthquake, in the dream there seemed to be some significance to the number 5. In the thread I started someone said the number 5 can represent "travel", as it happens I am planning a trip to devon. With this new quake and mini-tsunami (plus the dream) I might cancel my trip.

My "breaking news: earthquake" dream.
