GUEST,Arnie at work BS: Earthquake in Kent (19) BS: Earthquake in Kent 28 Apr 07


Bit of a surprise to experience an earthquake at 0815hrs this morning! Kent is not usually known as being in an earthquake zone so we're not used to this sort of thing down here. The house shook under me accompanied by a loud rumbling noise. My first thought was that the roof had fallen in, but then my son rang to say that Dover had just been hit by an earthquake and everyone in his street was standing outside in their pyjamas! Folkestone, which is the next town along the coast was the worst hit with chimneys toppling and one person buried in rubble. Latest reports are that it measured 4.3, which doesn't sound a lot unless you experience it first hand. The last earthquake to hit Kent was in 1950 so hopefully no more for another 50 years, by which time I don't suppose I'll be too bothered....
