Shake, Rattle and Roll

| Filed under: Anglophilia

An earthquake hit the U.K., including London and as far as Wales, on Tuesday evening.

With a magnitude of 5.3, it was pretty darn big.

It is thought to be the UK's largest earthquake in the last 25 years.

Hope everyone's okay!

    36

    My friends from up north and London area were telling me about this a few hours ago. I was gutted it didn't reach as far as Dover, where i live. We need some excitement!
    Oh, and actually we had an earthquake down this end last year, and it was 6. something…so no, that wasn't the biggest earthquake in 10 years.

    hey everybody. so i just found this site and i thought i would share it.
    This girl rachel is in real financial trouble and is looking for help.

    This poor girl is about to loose everything. I feel like we really need to help her. Come on perez readers! We are a great community here and i think we can do anything we put our minds to!

    Help her out. I did, and now i feel great about it.

    here is her site

    http://saverachel.weebly.com

    make sure you tell her your from perezhilton.com. i told her i would rally the perez troops.

    thanks guys.

    That must be scary for them, especially since earthquakes in their area are rare. A 4.7 is an alright quake, though. No big deal… if you live in a city with buildings built for earthquake tremors.

  49. fed up says – reply to this

    ummm so the article you linked to is from 2002, that seems like some pretty great journalism skills at work….ooh look, in a matter of mere minutes i managed to find the correct link, which would be this http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/england/7266136.stm

    A 4.5 is a minor earthquake according to the USGC, not a "pretty darn big"one Perez. Maybe you should stick to the gossip and leave the science to the scientists … just a thought.

    LOL that's not big at all. your an idiot, perez.

  73. Amz says – reply to this


    73

    I'm in Manchester [NorthWest UK]; It was extremely scarey even though it is not classed as very large-scale in comparison.. I can't even begin to imagine what it is like for those who experience them on a higher richter scale..that must be so awful.

    "Good for Them" - I'd like to clarify that no tea was spilled, not that I'm aware of. That would be extremely unfortunate.

    No reported injuries or anything so hope everyone around UK is fine..

    Thanks for the Lovee, KissKiss xxxxx

    What a moron, 4.7 isn't that big, its just enough for people to properly feel it…get your facts straight fatass

    A 4.7 earthquake is a nothing earthquake. That might not even wake you up if you were sleeping.

    The earthquake happened the same time as the final Spice Girls concert…maybe the tectonic plates decided to "shake it to the right…"

    THE 5.3 EARTHQUAKE IS A BIG ONE IN THE UK. they hardly ever happen, at least i've never experienced one in my 19 years. so stop bitching about how its "small"

  81. U R A DICK! says – reply to this


    81

    Jesus, asswipe, Nevada just had a quake that was over 6, and you didn't say a peep. If a fat broad farts in California, it's over a 4.7. Worthless.

  82. amz says – reply to this

    It's now registered as a 5.3

    The New Madrid Earthquake, in 1812, rated 8.0 on the scale. That must have been a horrible disaster! I could not even imagine. It is said that "large areas sank into the earth". I live in STL and that is some scary shit!

  85. amz says – reply to this


    85

    P.s.. We love you Perez, come to the UK again soon..x

  86. Kirsty says – reply to this


    86

    In response to many of the worldwide comments, for the UK, 4.7 is major news, we hardly EVER get tremors or quakes, as we are quite far from any major fault lines. So whilst I understand some peoples disbelief that this is a newsworthy item, for us back in the (usually) rock solid UK, it's quite an unusual and interesting event. I'm about 200 miles from the epicentre, and it was felt quite strongly around here. My cup of tea did spill a bit :)
    Early reports suggest that there was only one injury, a man close to the centre had a chimney fall on him through his roof, and he sustained a fractured pelvis.
    So yes, I appreciate that for other readers, whom experience quakes and shakes much stronger and on a much more frequent basis, this may sound a bit lame, but it's quite weird by our standards.

  87. Ryan says – reply to this


    87

    Yeah, I felt the quake. Twas pretty exciting really. I know 5.3 isn't big by normal standards, but bear in mind that the UK doesn't really fall near any major fault lines, so earthquake activity is extremely rare. I'm sure the worst that happened is a few old people got confused/scared.

  88. Elanorelle (MFC) says – reply to this


    88

    I Know 5.3 is not too much in Victoria BC ( we get big ones here) but this is ENGLAND and an earthquake that big in the UK is a concern!
    Hope you are all safe, my friends , family and the MFC GANG! hope you all had an awesome concert at Brixton in London!

    love Elanorelle

    Perez I love your site but get your facts straight it DID NOT HIT LONDON. I'M IN LONDON! I was awake at 1:00am (which is when it hit) And btw 5.6 is nothing. Cheers. x

    Perez, i live in london, and i have no clue what your on about! no earth quake to my knowledge.

    i felt it at 1am local time on wednesday, very mild earthquake.

  92. blondie says – reply to this


    92

    I just looked at the map on the link.. LEEDS was hit perez, not London. do you have any idea how far away from london that actually is ?!! americans are so dramatic.

  93. eskara616 says – reply to this


    93

    i see that some people don't think much about this happening in england because it happens in other places too but if you consider that england is supposed to not be in an earthquake zone (or at least with earthquakes that are unnoticeable) then this is worrying to have happerning. most likely globle warming or kelly osbourne falling out of bed like what was posted a while ago

  94. fiownnnaaa says – reply to this


    94

    we had it in manchester wooo wooo and leeds apparently too.

  95. venezuelan girl says – reply to this


    95

    5.3 is not so big…. two days ago a 5.0 here in maracaibo, venezuela hit us…. its scary but nothing to worry about. From 5 to 6 is a moderate earthquake. From 6 to 7 is a severe one. Hope everyone's ok

  96. mmef says – reply to this


    96

    OH STFU
    HERE IN MEXICALI, MEXICO WE'VE BEEN HAVING LONG-LASTING EARTHQUAKES FOR THE LAST 3 OR 4 WEEKS AND NO ONE SEEMED TO NOTICE
    OUR HIGHEST WAS 5.7 AT RICHTER SCALE AND GUESS WHAT?
    NO ONE HAS FREAKED OUT.

    YES IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN SCARY BUT C'MON..CATASTROPHIES DO NOT HAPPEN FOR THIS '4.7' EARTHQUAKES.
    I'M TELLING YOU BECAUSE I KNOW IT.

    GET OVER IT.

  97. Alice in Manchester, UK says – reply to this


    97

    We're all fine over here thanks, Perez! Reports are stating it was actually between 4.7 (The Guardian, Sky News) and 5.3 (BBC). I was asleep for the last big one in 2002 which was 4.8, so it was my first earthquake - scared the shit out of me! It happened just before 1am GMT, it's really cool people care enough to leave comments here, but as far as reports are going, there was no real damage - thanks a lot for all your concern though guys xxx
