Late Edition: Earthquakes

Marcus Brigstocke reports on the minor earthquake that hit Britain back at the end of February.

It’s even more laughable in light of the disastrous quake that struck western China on Friday, killing over 12,000 people. Just imagine if something of similar magnitude occurred in America or Britain. The coverage would be non-stop for goodness knows how long, rather than just rating a brief mention on the nightly news for a few days before being quickly forgotten or superceded by the latest minor flood, tornado or wildfire closer to home.
