Solid ground. Lucky us!

My thanks to my friend Mark W who pointed out this interesting article by the British Geological Survey. In the week of the horrendous and cataclysmic earthquake and consequent tsunami in Japan, the article looks at the likelihood of a similar event here in the UK. We are located in the stable middle of a tectonic plate, unlike Japan, so the earthquakes we experience (daily) in this country are many thousands of times weaker than last week's Japanese quake. We, have, however, experienced tsunami-type events here in the historic and prehistoric past. Read the article below to learn more.
