In Birmingham, Uk - Feeling Earthquakes In Christchurch, Nz

In the last week, I thought I felt two earthquakes in Birmingham, UK. The first was a minor tremor, the second actually rattled the table in my bedroom.

I've lived in Chile so I know what a 'Real Earthquake' feels like. These felt real enough, but very minor. And both times, I checked on Twitter to see if anyone else was reporting an earthquake in Birmingham, it turned out there had been an earthquake in Christchurch. NZ exactly the same.time I felt it.

The UK's nearest landmass antipode is New Zealand.

I guess I can feel earthquakes - quite literally - from across the globe!
