Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, United Kingdom / not felt: House was quiet last night, two pens next to each other rattled together momentarily. I thought that's odd, probably a big truck driving by, but no sound of a truck outside. I thought to myself somewhat whimsically ' must be an earthquake'... catch the news this morning and well what do you know. Would be interested to know to what extent it was confirmed by seismograph readings here in the UK. Respect to those P waves- damn they're fast!
