"Intense shaking" was reported overnight as a 3.8 magnitude earthquake struck in the Irish Sea, with tremors felt in Dublin, Wicklow and Kildare, as well as Merseyside in the UK. While not exactly common, the British Geological Survey (BGS) said that earthquakes of this size happen about once every year.

The 'quake occurred at around 4.15am and was reported by more than 100 people to the BGS, who said that "people reported hearing an initial loud banging, followed by rumbling, and intense shaking", making the entire ordeal sound somewhat similar to a Skrillex gig.
