    But it is really much smaller sized than the one 10 years earlier at Market Rasen, 30km from this , that was 90 times larger.

    Independent organisation (EMSC) stated it had actually gotten reports from individuals 100km from the epicentre who had actually felt the trembling.


    The BGS stated it had actually gotten reports consisting of howthe entire home shook for a number of seconds”;” [ich] heard a rumble with a synchronised shivering”: “the bed began to shake”; “the radiator jolted”; and somebody whobelieved it was a truck crashing outdoors”.
