hey, you made GDACS!
second lowest quake in 24hrs, but not bad considering the rest were regulars.
Same here, just turned 4, we were on holiday in Llanbedrog. Lots of tremors afterwards too
wow, the insurance bill for that must run into billions, surely...
"caernarfon - Woken up with the bed shaking, sadly my luck was not in"
"Llandudno - Pooed my pants and dropped my jam on toast , may need months off work ."
"Groeslon,Caernarfon - Its the end of the world !!!"
"pwllheli - Shook me out of bed landed face down on the floor, nob hit the ground first so wasnt the best experience"
Glad to see the Welsh humour coming through this awful disaster (sic).
Of course the biggest 'concern' (some might say relief) is that most of the routes on the Lleyn are likely to have fallen down....
That happens in a moderate breeze.
I was awoken this morning by a door that was vibrating violently. I was convinced that someone was trying to break into my house so I snuck out of the back door dressed only in a pair of skids and a pair of clogs. I also collected a billhook from the fireplace on the way out. I found no sign of any intruder so went back to bed. I was going to report the incident to the police but fortunately I saw an article on the BBC website about the quake so I saved myself the embarrassment.
and I was sort of being serious about the LLeyn seacliffs.
