Kent earhquake

 

Did you people in Kent and Essex feel the earthquake in middle of the night? The epicentre of the quake measuring 4.2 on the Richter scale was just south of Ramsgate.

What was it like?

Graham Young (Times) : “It felt a bit like a bomb going off. The whole of the building shook for about seven seconds and the sky filled with seagulls.”

Others wrote to the British Geological Survey :

“…like a train running under the house, shaking everything. Woke me up. So disturbed I make a cup of tea!”

“Woke me from deep sleep and first thought it was thunder as very disorientated. Lasted about a minute I suppose but was a very odd experience! House shook, I’m a bit scared now!”

“Heavy shaking like a lorry crashing outside the house couldn’t believe it!”

Stella Hulott (Facebook) : “I am in Westgate on Sea. My cats are upset and the husband has slept through it. My heart is still pounding!”
