    I got my correction in once I realised

    Second largest in the last nine ours. Something to be proud of at least?

    Earthquake!!!!

    I remember the one in Dudley. That was pretty intense. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/2002_Dudley_earthquake

    Thinking about it, I swear we had one more recent than that too...

    I was living about 2 miles from BHX when the Dudley one happened, although I was further from Dudley than that I still had books shaken off shelves and the rumble through the floor made me wonder if a plane had crashed.
    Looking back it was quite exciting really!

    Haha, it was. I had headphones on at the time so felt it through the floor first. Remember thinking maybe my bro had knocked over his guitar or amp but it just kept going lol!

    I think it was the length of time it went on for that made it exciting.

    I remember the Dudley one too. Believe it or not, myself and then partner were watching "The Evil Dead" at the time....the quake rumble came just as the characters started to read the incantations from the Necronomicon.

    In the good old West Midlands, Live in Chasetown...small place best described as being between Lichfield and *shudders* Cannock.

    Yeah...the quake was timed perfectly for the film ...4D Home cinema.
