Earthquake in the UK

Earthquake in the UK This afternoon about 2:30pm UK time I felt the house shake a little. Then I looked up and saw the mirror in my room shaking for maybe 2 seconds. I first I wonder what was happening, then realize it was an earthquake. I got my laptop and searched the internet, just check to see if it was an earthquake and not something I'd imagine. Yeah sure enough an earthquake happened in the UK, 20 miles north of Swansea, but felt as far as 200 miles away. So that is why we here in Plymouth could feel the earthquake happening. We do get earthquakes in the UK but they are small but today was recorded a 4.4 the largest for 10 years.

I think I live in a very safe city because we hardly experience earthquake. The last time was many years ago and it was the strongest one. My cousin, who happens to be an architect explained to me that the strength of the earthquake is like a phase. It'll gradually increase over the years and once it reaches its peak, it would gradually slow down again. So I am expecting a strong one in the future. This city has never really experienced any damage due to an earthquake.
