Falmouth has been at the centre of an earthquake

The tremor on Tuesday night measured 1.3 on the Richter Scale.

That's about the force of a stick of dynamite.

Some locals say they heard a rumbling, while things like radiators shook.

A couple called police to report the quake, which the British Geological Survey says was centred just south of Argal reservoir at 10.44pm.
