Earthquake hits Gloucester

A small earthquake hit in Gloucester this morning at 7:20am. It measured 1.8 on the Richter Scale.

I actually thought I felt it twice! Once in the middle of the night sometime (didn't look at the clock) I thought I was having heart palpitations at first!

Then again around 7.20ish. I recognised it as experienced one some years ago in Gloucester which was much stronger and felt as if someone was moving furniture! Cant remember what year that was though.
