Kent in southeast England was hit by a 4.2 magnitude earthquake early Friday morning, with tremors felt across the region.

Residents in Canterbury, Margate and Whitstable felt rumblings as the minor quake rippled out from the epicentre 5 km south of Ramsgate.

The British Geological Survey, who normally tweet “weekdays 9 – 5,” posted updates on the quake location and put it into context early on.
