Good afternoon from a chilly and damp Surrey.

This was a rather large earthquake for its area, wasn’t it….?

The European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre’s details on the 13th February 2015 North Atlantic ‘quake makes for fascinating reading indeed:

As I have been voicing for a while now… keep a close eye on the Azores Microplate region over the coming months. A VERY close eye…
