    Earthquake - Folkstone Kent

    Only found out about this on the news. I know Pete is in the area, so does anyone know if he is alright?

    More info here: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/in_pictures/6603129.stm Pete posted this thread at 18:11 - Engine bay pics so Im sure he is okay.

    On a slightly comical note maybe it was when he started his engine

    I was in Folkstone but was in the car. The g/fs mum was at home and she said the house shook quite a bit and it sounded like an explosion

    My family felt it in Canterbury, about 15 miles from Folkestone. Apparently it was felt in France aswell.
