It's all gone biblical down in the south west, with the epic flooding now joined by a new form of catastrophe -- the earthquake. Residents in as far afield places as Ilfracombe and Swansea experienced a 4.1 magnitude quake yesterday, as God callously moved another chess piece on his board of doom.
The earthquake at around 1:21pm was described as feeling like the rumble you get when a massive lorry cruises past the house a bit too fast, with geologists saying the centre of the quake was a spot in the Bristol Channel known to have the occasional seismological outburst every now and again.
No one was hurt and a few things wobbled. Maybe some dogs got stressed. The sea rippled in Minehead. We have it good, really. [BBC]
