Earth News: Scotland

Jan 16, 2007
Seismologists have revealed that the Boxing Day earthquake in Dumfries was the strongest to have its epicentre in the region in more than 200 years.
The effects were felt as far away as Glasgow and Paisley.
The quake struck at 1040 GMT and was initially measured at 3.5 on the Richter scale - but that figure has now been increased to 3.6.
The British Geological Survey said it was the biggest quake in Dumfriesshire since records began in 1775.
