Residents in the Eyre Peninsula town of Yeelanna had a rude awakening last night when a series of earthquakes shook the town.
The quakes took place between 10:20pm yesterday and 1:00am today, with the largest measuring 3.7 on the richter scale.
Primary Industries and Resources seismologist David Love says while the earthquakes were not big by international standards, they could have been felt up to 80 kilometres away.
He says residents can expect more aftershocks to follow.
