Are any of the brits online and awake?
Did anyone else just get an Earthquake?
00:58, lasted about 15 seconds or so, shook the house!
I live in the U.S., but here is the one you are talking about. Looks like it was a 4.7.

It's crazy. :S There was also one off the coast of Sumatra Island (7.1 on the Richter Scale) about 2 days ago. And in my area we had a 5.1 on the Richter Scale. :S Plates are definitely doing some shifting. Let's hope that they're just relieving tension to keep away the really big, disastrous ones. :S
