DARWIN has been rocked by an earthquake measuring 7.5 on the Richter scale, Geoscience Australia said tonight.
The government agency which measures earthquakes said the quake struck at 8.21pm (CST) or 9.51pm (AEDT).
Its epicentre was in the Banda Sea near Indonesia.
This is all that is written on the site at this time.
Thought that this could perhaps trigger another tsunami. The epicentre was in the ocean.
Australia rarely ever has earthquake activity as it is located in the centre of a tectonic plate.
