It was first reported as 3.2 on the richter scale, now it's been upgraded to 3.8 and is being called an earthquake.
Not sure what is classed as an earthquake, but damn that was one weird moment when it hit.
I didn't actually realise at first, then someone I was with said what was that, and I realised something had happened. Was like a rolling roaring
sound that lasted for about 10 seconds.
It was felt all across the Adelaide metro area.
The Adelaide metro area spans just over 100km in a north-south direction.
There was an article around this time last year, saying that 2010 was the year that Adelaide would most likely get hit by a 6+ quake.
April 19 12.30am 2009, now on April 16 11.30pm 2010, we get a 3.8 quake.
I'm still a little freaked out, first time I've ever experienced a tremor.
I just remembered last night I was out on a metropolitan jetty at one of our beaches, and the tide was out...way out. We all noticed and commented how
strange it was.
