Somerset earthquake: Residents say ‘whole house rattled’ during 3.2-magnitude tremor | UK News



A 3.2-magnitude earthquake has been felt in Somerset, says the British Geological Survey.

It said the tremor had been felt in several towns and villages in the county.

Residents told the BGS how their “whole house rattled”, their bed shook, and there was a “big rumble” which gave their home “a definite shove”.

The organisation said the quake happened around Bridgwater at 10.49pm, at a depth of 5km.

“Earthquake felt in Taunton, Somerset tonight, thought something had hit the side of the house, made the windows shake, quite scary,” said Dave Arthur on Twitter.

Another person tweeted that they “thought a lorry had hit our house”.
