    SEISMIC ALERT: MANCHESTER 21 OCTOBER 2002 07:45 UTC 3.2 ML

    Today BGS have received felt reports from residents throughout Greater Manchester of a felt earthquake at 07:45 UTC. The felt reports described "whole house shook", "I was alarmed", "furniture moved" and "windows and doors rattled". This event was followed by a magnitude 2.3 ML aftershock, which occurred some 19 minutes later.

    The following preliminary information is available for the mainshock:

    DATE : 21 October 2002
    ORIGIN TIME : 07:45 15.8s UTC
    LAT/LONG : 53.48° North / 2.19° West
    GRID REF : 387.0 kmE / 397.6 kmN
    DEPTH : 3.4 km
    MAGNITUDE : 3.2 ML
    LOCALITY : Manchester, Greater Manchester

    Today's event locates some 14 km west of the magnitude 2.6 ML Manchester earthquake, which occurred on 5 December 1987, and was felt with intensities of 4 EMS and also locates approximately 30 km ENE of the magnitude 4.5 ML Widnes event, which occurred on 3 November 1976. Today's earthquake locates approximately 105 km north of the Dudley earthquake, which occurred on 22 September 2002, with a magnitude of 5.0 ML.
