Light earthquake felt in southern England between Oxford and London this morning

Epicenter of this morning's quake in England
Epicenter of this morning's quake in England
An earthquake of magnitude 3.8 shook Central England this morning, about 20 minutes ago. The epicenter of the shallow quake (around 10 km depth) was 3 km SW of Aylesbury, or 30 km east of Oxford, or 60 km NW of London city.
The tremor was clearly felt by thousands of people living in the areas close to the epicenter, including a radius of approx. 30-40 km where light shaking could be noticed. In some cases, shaking was strong enough to make things fall from shelves, etc. One user in Cheddington at 12 km distance reported that the "house shook for around 8 seconds" and that the quake was "felt by all in the household and neighbours. Items fell off shelves".
Earthquakes are rare in Great Britain, but smaller and occasionally moderate ones like this do occur from time to time. No significant damage should have occurred.

Update Tue, 8 Sep 2020, 09:14
We received more than 500 reports within the first 20 minutes of the quake. This clearly shows that the quake was widely felt and that the occurrence of even a small earthquake in areas that are not used to earth tremors makes people very curious and sometimes afraid to find out what it might have caused.

Update Tue, 8 Sep 2020, 09:27
The British Geological Survey (BGS) now also reports the quake as a magnitude 3.3 tremor widely felt in Leighton Buzzard town (pop. 37,000), which is only few kilometers from the epicenter.
The now very densely populated map of user reports on our website shows nicely how most of the city experienced light to moderate shaking on the Mercalli scale (blue to green colors).
It is interesting to note that BGS took 25 minutes more than the first reporting agency, France's RENASS, to mention the earthquake in their public data feed.
If you were or still are in this area during the quake help others with your feedback and file a quick report here.
