    And I would like to know what '188 day cycle' Yamkin is referring to. Asking such a simple question is hardly being 'picky' now, is it? A simple explanation, along with supporting data, will be fine..

    Damn, I first read that as Ovaltine and was afraid to go to bed tonight.....

    Looks bad in Izmir Tsunami too

    Definitely not something you forget from memory, back in 2008 with the Lincs quake which happened past midnight I was on the PC and it sounded like a rolling gale across the roof. Didn't think much of it at the time until a minute later everyone in the house was rushing around and telling me there'd just been a earthquake.

     Didn’t feel anything here although I was walking back from the shops at the time. 

    Edit: lots of reports on Facebook of people feeling it around this area. Gutted! Been 10 years since the last one that could be felt here and I have to go and miss it.

    .....if that was crazy where you are....the epicentre was in Cwmllynfell approx 6-7 mile north of where I was sitting in my chair !!!

    Some reports locally of very minor damage ie cracks in ceilings....can't imagine what being in a big one feels like!

    Was noticeable here North of Bristol. I was in my room and it felt like everything had been shuffled about all at once. Could here faint rumbling outside and it was like a large lorry going by, but instant rather than gradual.

    My thoughts exactly. I'm in Stroud, Gloucestershire. I was in the house when suddenly all the doors and windows started to vibrate and there was a rumble akin to a heavy vehicle going past the house. I remember thinking "Earthquake" as a similar thing occurred many years ago when I was playing the piano in the top floor of a house and the piano moved. It was an earthquake then also.

    How would you find accurate information about the location of the epicenter, some reports locate very close to my house, is there any reliable way of pinpointing it, or the most reliable source? I didn't notice it was in the pub watching football!

    Luckily the two I've been aware of have both been modest affairs. That said I can't imagine the helplessness that would go with a serious one!
