Loogabarooga - earthquake centre of the world!

Post by BJ. » Tue Feb 05, 2013 7:00 am

According to today's Daily Torygraph (can't find a link at the moment), there were two more earthquakes yesterday morning based on Loughborough. Admittedly, they were only 2.4 and 1.5 magnitude and only one person reported them.

It's strange how these tremors have become more frequent since diggings in a certain Leicester car park began. :smt105
Whatever you do, don't argue. We might never hear from you again.

As one of my best friends works for the British Geological Survey I could go all technical on you, but yes, small earth tremors happen far more often than people think.

Actually they stopped digging in the car park about 2 weeks after they found the remains, it's back to a car park now.

I hope it didn't cause a tsunami amongst all that sewage near the Hobby Horse.

Yuk.
