3.2 quake in Somerset (3.4 on some reports) https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-somerset-50682105

 

It has been observed that less snow falls here than any other place of equal extent in the kingdom, occasioned by the shelter of the hills and the warmth of the sea breezes - Alexander Hay, Guide to Chichester, 1805

Major earthquake (6.8) in Eastern Turkey at Sivrice, some distance east of Ankara, 20 fatalities and counting.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-51245088

If I read this correctly https://www.researchgate.net/publication/298907726_Lake_Hazar_Basin_A_Negative_Flower_Structure_on_the_East_Anatolian_Fault_System_EAFS_SE_Turkey

the area is part of a complex fault zone mainly associated with the East Anatolian fault and Lake Hazar just to the east of Sivrice has been created by a spreading of the earth's crust. Last significant earthquake in the area was in 2007.

Istanbul is the one everyone is fearing. Been a long time since a major quake

On a different fault line, the North Anatolian Fault (NAF) - on which the successive quakes have been moving steadily westwards, and, as you say, Istanbul is the next stop. Just hope the present quake doesn't tickle up the NAF.

No reports of damage yet https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-latin-america-51287493

Surprising for this magnitude, even though it was a sideslip on the fault

Any links to that Gavin?

Just wondering what part of the island has this affected - quite a nasty jolt and capable of causing quite a bit of damage and maybe some deaths as well ?

Can't see where else to slip this in, but it is interesting in a seismic kind of way...

No county (Lincolnshire) has better churches and worse houses. The poorer sort of people wash their clothes with hog's dung, and burn dried cow's dung for want of better fuel; whence comes the Lincolnshire proverb: "Where the hogs shite soap and the cows shite fire".

Fairly big earthquake (7.4) has occurred in southern Mexico apparently but details are scant.
