Late King Lear Weather Hits Kent

April 28, Saturday. (Bloomberg)

A magnitude 4.3 earthquake struck Kent, a region southeast of London known as "the Garden of England",in the worst tremor in the area since 1580, the British Geological Survey said.

Blow, winds, and crack your cheeks! rage! blow!
You cataracts and hurricanoes, spout
Till you have drenched our steeples, drowned the cocks!

The quake is the largest in Britain since an earthquake in Dudley in 2002.
And a few days later the humourists get to work.
