Cumbria Earthquake - 3rd January 2011

Blimey these are becoming too regular, this evening at around 21:03, some in Kendal including me felt a quick tremor and a sound like a heavy gust of wind.  Having now alot of experience of all this earth moving malarkey it was straight on to Twitter first to post that I'd felt the house move and then to search on keyword 'earthquake', loads of tweets were coming in from the Yorkshire, Bradford area.

These are the details from here, which centre the quake need Ripon, these details may get updated on the main site once the reading from the UK are taken into account.
