Earthquake Terror

Last night I was in an earthquake. I was laid in bed reading my book and suddenly the room started shaking, everything rattling and my bed shaking from side to side. It lasted about 3 seconds but was quite freaky. Which exotic location was this?

Wolverhampton.

No tell of a lie.

An emergency fund has been set up to send blue pop and fish scraps to the devastated area. Thankfully it looks like the quake will have not affected the pork scratching industry, and pig snacks will continue to be distributed across the nation. Phew.

    Yeh. It felt like our roof was coming down, and we’re just below Sheffield :)

    The government should do something about this terror threat. Maybe they should start a War on Tremor.

    Hehe… don’t move to Greece then… We get more powerful quakes there 2-3 times a year. ;-)

    Stop bitching, I had 3 in the last 3 weeks, ~4 and ~7 (I do live in Israel and not in the Uk).

    The fun thing is that I live in the 7th floor. You do feel them :)

    Was rather annoying, I had just gotten to sleep and then low and behold the earth decides to quake. I wonder how confused any pets in the area were.

    Hey Jono, so your first earthquake? I used live in my hometown Nicaragua, and we got earthquake every time(we have like 8 volcanoes), in the end you get use to them and not even stand up from your tv when it happens :smile:

    I was nervous about the wedding, woke up by the earthquake and had a bit of a freak out.

    Not good :(
