An natural disaster has hit areas of the United Kingdom and Wales

The EMSC an Independent Scientific Organization and provider of real-time natural disaster warnings and information, said there had been over 4,000 reports from people feeling the effects of the quake, ranging from Cornwall to Liverpool.

South Wales Police have told people not to call emergency services unless they have something to report, such as injuries or damage.

Young blogger Bambino Becky happened to be recording a video when the natural disaster struck, and caught footage of the moment it hit.

But as you can see, it will take a long time to recover from such a traumatising event.

The British Geological Survey said the epicentre was near Cwmllynfell in Swansea Valley and at a depth of 7.4km.

Social media is awash with people reporting their experience of the tremors, with residents of Railway Close in Westbury losing electricity momentarily to people noticing their lights were flickering and their furniture was shaking.

The quake happened just after 2.30pm on Saturday.

One person Tweeted his disappointment with the "pathetic" quake.

"I was sat writing in the loft when the table, computer and whole floor shook for a couple of seconds".

And Richard Di Britannia said: "Small quake in Sheffield, that was new!" "The dogs are not happy at all though", she said.

Port Talbot is 10 miles from Swansea and the tremors were felt as the town's football side faced Taff's Well.

Another Twitter user, @bloodyduck, said: "I think I felt that in Preston".
