Did anyone feel the earthquake at around 1am this morning??

It sure woke me and Georgie up!

She came running into our bed - but DP just sort of groaned through it!

Just read on the news that the epicentre was just outside Market Rasen in Lincolnshire which is about 10 mins from us... Shocked

I've never experienced anything like that before....

OMG yes I felt it, and my DH, it woke us up!!! We have had gales here so at first I thought it was the wind (it has been so bad the neighbour lost some of her roof yesterday) and I thought we'd either had a huge gust or she had lost more of her roof, but everything was shaking, we have a TV on a stand on the wall and that was wobbling away and the bed was shaking!!!

I was half asleep so it didn't really register what was going on until my SIL rang us up to make sure we were ok, they only live about 5 mins away and stuff fell off shelves at their house Shocked

No, actually, I haven't checked on her yet, I need to do that!! I just heard on our news this morning that it was one of the areas that was impacted the most!

Glad you guys are ok Sarah... My mom was in a really big one in Alaska when my sister was a baby but I've never experienced one personally... I think I'd rather not! Scared

Blimey your poor mum Sad

This is the 1st earthquake I've ever experienced, but as far as I know it was most severe near Wolfblass.

I was talking to my neighbour earlier and they said they slept through it, but her son rang her to say that they felt it. He lives in a student house and one of the guys who lives there had just been to the loo and flushed it, just as the earthquake started! They thought he had blown up the drains haha!!!

I still can't imagine how scary that must have been for all of you who were awake and felt it!!

We've had a fmaily staying at the hotel where i work adn they only left last week! Their house was badly damaged - 2 chimneys collapsed through the roof and it's only just been marked as safe to move back in!

However it was small in the grand scheme of things....
