There are reports form Greenford to Marble Arch and Abbey Road that at precisely 01:00 a quake hit Great Britain. I felt nothing here, sitting on the futon pile. I guess I have something to be happy for.
Update: The earthquake, which at a 5.2 on the Richter scale was the most powerful trembler to hit the UK in 24 years, was centred in Lincolnshire and struck at 12:56 am. I really didn’t feel a thing, as I was sitting low to the floor on a folded up futon in a lower ground floor studio. People have reported feeling their beds move, and one chap in Lincolnshire awoke to find his chimney had tumbled into his bed chamber.
