Small earthquake in Surrey - not many people noticed, and it was before anyone fracked the area. As someone said on the news, the Italians wouldn't bother to get out of bed for it

Channel Islands California? It makes me wonder how long before the next “big one” in that area.

I didn’t feel it here, although I’d have been asleep at that time.

Reports nevertheless of it being felt as far away as Norwich. But earthquake motion can be amplified if buildings are on alluvial or unconsolidated sediments, while those on hard strata suffer no damage. Cf Lisbon 1755 or Christchurch NZ 2010.

It was over in a couple of seconds here and I would have carried on assuming it had been a large lorry going past nearby if I hadn't read this morning about the earthquake.

At least it will be mild!

We’re on Bunter sandstone, which I think is classed as alluvial. Although we are a fair way from the epicentre, so even if I’d been awake I doubt I’d have felt it.

Alluvial 250m years ago, but now consolidated into hard stone, witness its use in building and cliff formation.. The alluvial strata which respond to earthquake vibrations are recent deposits, as in fens, river valleys, drained lake bedsetc.

And again in the same place, even stronger at 7.0 rather than 6.4

I see that there have been two separate magnitude 6.4 quakes in N Alaska in the last few hours. No reported casualties or significant damage as far as I know but the quakes are notably strong for the region I think.
