A minor earthquake in Garforth on April 29 2019.

Postby Leodian » Mon 06 May, 2019 9:40 pm

In an UK Earthquakes section in the British Geological Survey website it records that an earthquake of magnitude 1 occurred at Garforth on April 29 2019, centered beneath about the junction of the A642 and B6137. A magnitude 1 earthquake is minor and may not have been felt but I wonder if there were any reports locally? The earthquake was stated to have happened at 05:26 at a depth of 4km which is very much below the deepest that a Yorkshire coalfield was so the quake will not be old mining related.
