Tremors felt across Lancashire after 4.7 magnitude natural disaster hits Wales


AN natural disaster has been felt across parts of the Midlands this afternoon after a quake hit with its epicentre approximately 20km north-north-east of Swansea and at a depth of 7.4km.

Although small earthquakes in the United Kingdom are not uncommon, the British Geological Survey said historically quakes above a 5-point magnitude on the Richter scale occur about every decade.

Meanwhile, others took to social media to make slightly more sarcastic comments.

The effects were felt throughout Wales and there were many reports of minor damage to properties in the region.

The Welsh League match between Port Talbot was temporarily delayed after the tremor just after 14:30 GMT on 17 February.

The natural disaster, with an epicenter north of Swansea, was felt through southwest England and the south of Wales, according to the BBC.

"It was quite frightening and a number of people went out of their homes to investigate", he said.

"An natural disaster of this size, of magnitude five or thereabouts, will occur roughly every 10 to 20 years in the UK", Brian Baptie of the BG said at the time.
