    There was one in that area in 1906 , rattled the best china on the dressers , caused some panic down the mines (they actually had them in those days) .....

    There are some well known geological fault lines around - so probably just a bit of stressing etc.

    I remember many years ago there was an earthquake in the middle of the night and the picture that hung above my bed wobbled a bit.

    Took the picture down, never put it back up again. You can never be too careful.

    I remember the big quake of 2008.
    I thought that upstairs had bought at least three new washing machines and were inconsiderately running the spin cycle on all of them at 3 in the morning

    I remember the one that went off in the Irish Sea, sometime in the mid 80s. Was quite an experience, back then.

    Very meh about them these days, I don't particularly like them. Just in case they turn out to be destructive etc.

    Daughter's building was shaking apparently, in Hereford. She was worried her telly would fall over. Thought something had driven into the side of the building.

    I remember one that hit the Midlands, sometime around the late 80s or early 90s, I was living in a top-floor/3rd flat In Taunton.

    I am in a armchair, my mate is on the settee, I am passing the spliff, and things start moving a bit, we looked at each other & just cracked-up, we thought it was the weed. :D

    It wasn't until the next day that I heard on the radio that the earth-quark had been felt as far a field as Taunton, that made me smile.

    My lovely Japanese friend pronounces the word arse-quack. I have never corrected her because in my mind that is what they are.

    The word going around South Yorkshire is there will be a repeat of the Swansea earthquake on Tuesday evening.
    This will be a result of all the Sheffield Wednesday fans bottom lips thudding onto the floor following their defeat in the FA Cup replay!
