4.1 earthquake in Devon?!

British earthquake

The British Geological Survey (BGS) is reporting that an earthquake measuring 4.1 hit Devon at 1:21 p.m. BST today.

Tremors were felt in areas including Dartmoor, Bristol, Taunton, Swansea, Llanelli, Barnstable, Gloucester and South Molton.

What in the world is going on? I’m still trying to get over Devon images like this. Waves hitting our favorite quiet seaside Devon town of Teignmouth:

And the flooding in Dawlish:

  1. I was woken by an earthquake a few years ago. The picture frames were rattling against the wall. I put it down to a large slow moving vehicle passing the house – maybe a road sweeper – and (apart from a brief observation that there weren’t any large slow moving vehicle passing the house) went back to sleep. It wasn’t till I heard the news on my way to work the following morning that I realised it has been an earthquake.
