An earthquake has hit a town in United Kingdom, making it the thrid to hit the town in two weeks.
The town of Leighton Buzzard has been hit by a 3.0-magnitude earthquake.
People in the Bedfordshire town said the quake happened at about 8:32am on Tuesday, September 22, 2020 with one describing how it felt like a ‘large truck’ hit their home.
The tremor took place at a depth of 10km, according to the British Geological Survey.
One resident tweeted that their ‘whole house shook’ during the earthquake, while another said they heard two ‘big bangs’ and felt ‘shaking’.
It comes after a 2.1-magnitude earthquake struck the town on September 13, following another 3.5-magnitude tremor on September 8.
This morning one resident tweeted:
“ Just had our third #earthquake in #Leightonbuzzard in three weeks. @BritGeoSurvey, what’s happening?
“This one was at 9.35am and the first at 9.45am 2 weeks ago – is there any fracking going on, or is this just a coincidence?!”
