Maghull is 6 miles North of Liverpool (1486.4 km SE of epicenter) [Map] / not felt : I have not felt anything like a tremor so far, Am I too far away to feel anything. I have been following the progress of Bardarbunga, the power of nature is exciting and scary at the same time. How far can the shock waves travel. Regards Roy.
