I'm showing a small 2.9 earthquake smack in the middle of the U.K. on usgs realtime map .

I don't know how to do that linking thing so this is just an alert because I'm not sure if I remember any activity around there . If mods want to delete this and let somebody go with it who knows what they're doing feel free . I would like to know if this does happen occasionally and I've just missed it though .

I saw that on USGS myself a little while ago. While I'm sure they have some type of geologic past (or present), it did stick out to me as well. I have been watching the site daily for a few years and I can't say that I've noticed one there before, but with all of the apparent geologic activity (large quakes on major ocean ridges, the sheer number of volcanoes erupting, etc.)in the past year or so, I'm not surprised

We have about 4000 very minor quakes per year, usualy so small we're not aware of them. I'm nearly 60 and I can only remember ever noticing one, which was just a few years ago.

I blame all the recent activity on the Fracking.

Here is the Heliplot for Grafenberg, Germany. I'm guessing by UTC to time zone there, it's the small one in the 06:00 line.



I didn't realize England had quakes often enough to think about? I guess it's just not an area that gets notable ones very often. In imagining the truly OLD structures and such there, I suppose it's actually quite rare to get a BIG one?

Thank you . I usually ignore 1s and low 2s but you should be able feel a 2.9 if you're close by . (I was raised in S. California )

I was completely unaware that there was fracking going on in the U.K. , you may have a pretty good point there .

They happen from time to time.. The whole Earth is Earthquake prone it's nothing to be too frightened about. If they are not to common in your place of the world, doesn't mean they cannot happen.
