UK Earthquake Map

View Larger Map

British Geological Survey recorded an earthquake with a magnitude of
5.2 ML 4 km north of Market Rasen, Lincolnshire, at 00:56 GMT. The BGS has
been inundated with calls from the public, media and emergency services
throughout England. By 7 am this morning, over 1,400 felt reports had been
received via the online questionnaire on the BGS website.
There is a report of one person having been injured.
Reports indicate that the earthquake has been felt widely across England, with reports
of damage to chimneys in the epicentral area. Earthquakes of this size occur in
the mainland UK roughly every 30 years, although are more common in
offshore areas. This is the largest earthquake in the UK since the magnitude
5.4 ML Lleyn Peninsula."

I like the map. I quickly produced a map that shows a ten mile radius and a hundred mile radius around the epicentre.


Ideally I would have liked to have shown a radius every ten miles but I soon got bored of plotting the polylines.
