Read a report that an earthquake, measuring 4.8 on the Richter scale, shook Shetland early on Sunday, with Unst being most affected. Tables rocked back and forth, and the worst rattle someone ever experienced.

Were any of the Unst bloggers wakened by this event? Further info from the British Geological Survey website.

    "Damadcoo was woken by the tremor, I'll remind her she's a I.B.-er and maybe she will tell us the details. Scallowawife, you know very well that there has been no shaking in my house since the 3rd. "
