Bristol, U.K. –

A rare earthquake struck the town of Cornwall, England at 7:40 a.m. eastern time this morning and lasted for a few seconds.

According to the British Geological Society, the quake measured only 2.2 magnitudes on the Richter scale but was felt as far away as Austell and Padstow.

There have not been any reports of serious damage yet.

The largest known British earthquake occurred 60 miles offshore near the Dogger Bank in 1931, with a magnitude of 6.1.

It was still powerful enough to cause minor damage to buildings on the east coast of England.
