South Wales experienced a minor quake - but the Welsh were pretty underwhelmed

A 4.2-magnitude quake hit southern Wales Saturday morning, the first in the United Kingdom of that size in about 10 years.

Just like when an inch of snow hits Dublin and suddenly we've all forgotten how to walk, the good people of Wales reacted to this quake in the best way imaginable.

AN natural disaster has been felt across parts of the Midlands this afternoon after a quake hit with its epicentre approximately 20km north-north-east of Swansea and at a depth of 7.4km.

People across south-west England and Wales say they felt their homes and workplaces shake.

One person Tweeted his disappointment with the "pathetic" natural disaster.

Did you feel the natural disaster in Liverpool this afternoon?

The School of Ocean Sciences at Bangor University Tweeted: "Bangor region of north Wales just experienced an earth tremor".

Reports of shaking also came from areas such as Swansea, Bath and Greater Manchester. "The whole building just shook!??"

More than 4,000 people have already reported feeling tremors after an quake has shaken the country.

Thankfully, there were no initial reports of serious damage, however not everyone took it so seriously.
