Anybody notice an earthquake just now? My whole place started shaking, pictures on the wall were knocking against the back wall etc. Lasted quite a long time as well. Quite a scary sensation especially when it didn't stop!

Yup. Felt it here, too. I thought it was cat ar*ing about but then the bed kept shaking and shaking and she's not big enough to do that. Went on for a bit...I don't mind earthquakes when they're wee like that!

Wonder where the epicentre was? Hope there's no damage/injuries.

Hi, Yes it happened to us! Was beginning to think I imagined it. Never had anything like it before thought the house was going to fall down. Good old hubby slept right through it (until I woke him up that is!).

Thought I should check the forum to see if I was going mad. Thank God it was not just in my mind as that would have been scary!

Here we go again another example of how we panic in this country everytime something happens.

I mean it was only a shake spare a thought for those people who see real Earthquakes like the one in Christmas 2004 which caused a deadly wave of water or tsunami which wiped out thousands of people.

I mean iff we cant cope with this sort of thing then we never will.

Its like when we get a flake of snow the whole country stops, schools close, people panic buying.

In Canada and lots of places that get loads of snow they gets tons of snow they get on with it they dont make a fuss about it.

So ok Earthquake the ground shook a bit so what there are people who go through far worse than this in other parts of the world.

Oh do shutup and get off the high horse. Does it even look like anyone on here is panicking? I cant even see anyone panicking on the beeb!

Its just people scared at the time (and rightly so).

Please dont degenerate this with your 'think about how bad they have it in other countries etc etc'!

Well said NR, seems like the only one panicking is PANIC who is panicking about panicking, if you see what I mean?

I agree, no-one seems to be panicking, at least not on this forum

The news also made C*********** this morning; I was supposed to be heading for work so looked only briefly but the epicentre seemed to be North East; in which case tremours in Glos infers that it was a bit serious

I have only been involved once (Mombasa) and that was also very mild and the reaction ws similar to some posters ("what in hell was that")

but it is disorientating and one is left wondering "when will the other shoe be dropped"
