No buddy. We were travelling back from Barry and as soon as we got back could see all the posts from friends who live in Merthyr and surrounding towns. Mad though in it??

Can’t think we’ve ever had one before.

Pity. Sounded fun.

I spend most of my time about a mile from San Andreas fault.

I didn’t even know the UK was seismically active. Stay safe!

It doesn’t normally. We are all amazed by it

Sitting on sofa (North West Surrey), I felt slightly and heard a deep rumbling, bit like a large lorry going past, but went on for longer. Very weak in my location, I probably wouldn’t have noticed if walking around town.

Yeah I know. Annoying. If there’s going to be an earthquake can it be at an announced time so I’m up top of a thin tree to sway

Same here. Was it a bad one

Finally.

My fiancee said, the earth moved!

I am 300 miles from it and didn’t feel, but I am well prepared, food, water, shelter, lots of Powercore and Bolder LC flashlights and I live in a single storey property with windows in every room I can climb out of. Deliberately.

As its summer the 1st priority is water and there’s a gallon bottle in every room and by every exit. When in winter is more about clothing. About 2 months ago I rotated the bag of clothes by the exits with water. Then if the property not unsafe to re-enter then have shelter and food and clothing to sit it out. We hold a limit of 7 day of supplies as assumption is by then emergency services are here.

Actually we were just thinking we had too much tinned and dried food more than we needed last week, and were eating pasta last night to keep stocks to a reasonably low level. Yes there is that moment we have to eat sardines before out of date… :nauseated_face:
