    For all the people checking news websites such as the BBC - its 1am, people are asleep. I'm only awake as I have a deadline in 10 hours.... :)

    i don't think there is a person around here that could have missed that one, would have easily woken me up. It isn't pleasant when you're in a crumbling victorian terraced house on the 3rd floor.

    No, you're not. The ground wobbling about by itself is not a sensible thing.

    I thought maybe a truck has crashed into the garden wall or something at first, or a really low plane? next thing i thought of was the 2 enourmous oil refinerys not far from here, and everyone always says if they go bang we're all dead!

    :hehe: I wondered if something like that had happened, but after about 3 seconds I realised I would've heard a bang of some kind... That and I'm in a terrace...

    my flatmate was having a pee, I thought he was just being a bit too energetic with the shakedown at first untill the tv started to wobble. Then I thought it was a bus.

    That was cool, I'm in Manchester, always wanted to feel one, and that was really cool, only lasted about 8 seconds though, going to have to move to San Francisco me thinks!

    4.7 is what the BBC and USGS are saying. I've missed the last 2 in Manchester so i'm glad i stayed up late!
