A magnitude 1.5 earthquake hit Wrexham in the early hours of Monday morning.

The British Geological Survey measured the quake at a depth of 10,000 meters, and state it was 1.5 on the Richter scale. Such a quake is described as ‘usually not felt, but can be recorded by seismograph’, and others note that animals could also be affected by it.

The quake was centered around Minera, and so far we are yet to find anyone who felt it.

The official marking of the location is from the British Geological Survey:
