    I think I'd know if an earthquake hit Malta within seconds, so it's no good for me. I'd either feel it, or the whole of Malta would take to facebook instantly to see who felt it. It's the same when you lose electricity, the first place to look is facebook.

    Earthquakes don't start off with one big devistating quake, just small ones first, followed by a big one, followed by, afterquakes.

    We've had little ones, I've felt them, but what's happening closer to Italy is quite worrying. Any tiny earthquake close by and it's instantly in the news. I'll definitely be keeping an eye on them after that prediction for Malta.

    At least with the app it tells you what the scale of the tremor is.

    I'll give it a try.

    Slightly related, but how cool would it be to see mount Etna erupting from Malta. I've planned where I think I'll see it from already, so this app will help.

    There was a 1.4 picked up in Scotland Argyll/Bute, but it was so small it wasnt even mentioned anywhere.

    There are often small tremors in Scotland but most are not noticed.

    I looked at the app when I downloaded it, I didn't realise Italy had so many smaller ones each year. Malta doesn't usually have them, but I felt two stronger ones last year.
