all very well except Folkstone isnt built on this and is likely to only ever have very small magnitude earthquakes.

"authorities in the UAE should be prepared for an earthquake in Dibba measuring 5 to 6.5 on the Richter scale. "The Dibba Fault is active and we recorded an earthquake measuring 2.8 on the Richter scale at 5.22pm on January 11. "Two other earthquakes were also recorded in Ras Al Khaimah on January 5, including ones at 9.34am and 9.40am at magnitudes of 2.5 and 3.

"There were similarities between the earthquakes in both areas as they were on the Dibba Fault line, which is about 100km long.”People in Dibba have also felt at least 150 tremors during the past two years, which indicates that there is a major earthquake waiting to happen in the area. "This fault is capable of producing a major earthquake every 100 years and there has been no major earthquake in the last 100 years."

Roughly translated that means we have more chance of an earthquake here in the UAE because we are on a big fault line!
