Earthquake in the Channel

Hi all

I am back in England now. The strangest thing happened today - we had an earthquake in the English Channel and you could feel it on my local beach at Shoreham.
As you know I found out about earthquakes when I was in the USA and I even sat on a post above the San Andreas Fault where two of the earths plates meet. That all sounds a bit complicated, so you can find out more on the link below.

The earthquake in the English Channel was very small and just caused some very minor shaking - most people did not even notice it. Luckily we are a long way from a major fault line because that is where big earthquakes can happen.

Bye for now
