People in Wales reacted to Saturday's earthquake in the best possible way
We must rebuild.
At 2:30pm on Saturday afternoon, Wales and the West of England were hit by an earthquake, reported to have reached 4.7 on the Richter scale.
It's extremely rare that earthquakes strike in this part of the world, and when one does hit, it's never strong enough to cause much damage. *touch wood*
That doesn't stop people from reacting as if it's the start of the apocalypse, though.
Just like when an inch of snow hits Dublin and suddenly we've all forgotten how to walk, the good people of Wales reacted to this earthquake in the best way imaginable.
Luckily this guy caught the moment on camera, showing us just how powerful the tremor was.

Thankfully, no-one died during the quake.
But as you can see, it will take a long time to recover from such a traumatising event.
