Did anyone feel a minor earthquake at 21.45 yesterday evening?
There is no evidence on our local seismometer but a couple of bars of soap had fallen to the floor.

Reported to BGS.

3.6 quake around Crawley in the early hours of this morning.

There's recently been new oil drilling but not fracking but IMO no relevant.

I thought it was Reigate?

Apparently it was felt around here too, but I didn't notice and house is full of cracks anyway

I suppose its the same sort of shake as a lorry going past

Officially now 3.3 centred on Newdigate, about equidistant from Reigate and Crawley. I was originally relying on a Radio Sussex report -  suppose they reckoned that listeners would know Crawley as it's in Sussex but Reigate? That could be anywhere as it's over the border

Here's the BBC take on it, JH.

That can't be an aftershock? Can an aftershock be larger than the original quake?

Looks as though the 6.4 event was a foreshock

I don’t think this event would be classified as an aftershock and was probably triggered by the previous smaller quake. In a way I guess the first one was a “foreshock” to this quake.

Was it caused by a collective foot-stamping by long-haired teenagers after being told Boardmasters was cancelled?

Cynic! My great-niece, about to go to her first proper festival, is quietly devastated by the cancellation.
