Well its been a wild night here in Shetland and continues very windy this morning with a top gust so far of 58mph but thats not the only thing we've had to contend with! Aparrently at about 0530 this morning we had a small earthquake as well:

Something did waken me at that time but I had assumed until now it was the wild weather!
