Default Somehting just made my whole house shake!

i live by gloucester england and i was just browsing Cf when my house shook. no joke the door creeked, two glasses that were side by side rattled against each other, the water in one was moving like it was a puddle on jurassic park and i could feel it through my chair. last time something like this happened was when we supposedly had a mini earthquake. wow that was really weird and spinny

Earthquakes in UK? Well, thats rather rare, isn't it? I would have guessed it was a local construction site blasting or something. Last time my house shook was when a tree fell very close to it, but before that it was a Wal-Mart development.




I get my very own Wally-World March 7th.. Yayyyy

Do you live near

50 km (30 miles) S of Kingston upon Hull, England, UK
70 km (45 miles) NE of Nottingham, England, UK
80 km (50 miles) E of Sheffield, England, UK
205 km (125 miles) N of LONDON, United Kingdom

if so there was a 4.7 quake in your area.
