Adelaide rocked by earth tremor


www.theaustralia n.com.au

The tremor hit about 11.30pm, shaking multi-storey buildings in the city and felt from St Agnes to Mylor, from Munno Para to Largs Bay, AdelaideNow reports.

A police spokesman said there were several calls to triple zero around the time of the tremor, and the Bureau of Meteorology also fielded lots of inquiries.

"There were reports as far away as Monarto and Salisbury," a spokesman said.

Early reports from Twitter users said the quake happened at approximately 11.35pm CDT Thursday.

Yes this is an earthquake in a relatively stable area (geological). I thought is sounded a little odd until i found this video:



This person claims it was a meteor that cause the earthquake and he got a video of it.

I has only had a few views and there has not been enough time to confirm or debunk it but i thought i would bring this to the attention of ATS.

Glancing through the forums i think the poster has used this video:



I found it in this ATS thread:

Meteor/Fireball - Howard County Sheriff

Looks like i jumped the gun a little haha. But at least i had the best interests of ATS in heart haha.

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.
Crazy coincidence.

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.

USGS
On the USGS earthquake site, it says it was a 3.3 now. (they can't seem to make up their mind on the mag, huh?) The depth was 5.1 km.

The quake happened on rather shallow surface and would be a concern.

Spaceweather.com site has issued an aurora alert for the 17th April. Auroras are signs of geomagnetic storms. It came from the CME observed flaring from the sun on the 13th.

The solar protons travels much faster, usually within 15mins from the sun to reach Earth. China had an earthquake then.

This would probably be the last bit of the electrically charges pressure waves hitting our magnetosphere.

I would say you and I and others voluntarily and on their own free will and time to do some praying or meditation for Australia and other compromising geo fault lines. Praying and meditation causes no harm and cost no one anything....

Good Luck!

Earthquakes in Adelaide aren't unknown. There was a serious in in 1954 (which I'm pretty sure wasn't caused by HAARP
)

www.pir.sa.gov.au...

Also quakes there in 1897 and 1902

The most we get here in Adelaide are small tremors that can't be felt.
So a 3.8 that shakes our homes is something new for us.

Not sure if this has anything to do with it, but a workmate of mine saw a Large Blue Meteorite on Friday morning about 6.30am.

he told me it lit up the sky blue with a long tail.

oh, we are in new zealand.

Its interesting that if you look on Google Maps, Adelaide actually doesn't exist, they have all the suburbs and towns around it but not the name Adelaide anywhere, no matter how much you zoom in and out.

Never noticed before.

Felt the (minor) quake here at Golden Grove in the Adelaide Hills at 11:30pm local time and it lasted no more than 2 seconds..
News reports this morning classed it as a 3.8 magnitude.

There is a minor fault line running through the Adelaide Hills but essentially this is a very stable region. The last quake we had here was I believe approximately 20 years ago ... so quite unusual to experience one now.

Needless to say this emphasizes the point I have made in several of my threads that I believe the frequency of earthquakes is substantially on the increase in the last 50 or so years.

I heard a guest on the radio only 2 days ago saying how we are expected to get a 6.0 in the next 50 years. Somehow, I know he means sooner.

That's where I am too. I didn't feel it, but my wife, cat and dog did. My daughter was on Facebook and everyone suddenly started reporting it on there.

Funny how we get these cryptic warnings. Even Iran is warning it's people.

Hi All, have to say I barely noticed it. I was watching Band of Brothers on the pc when it happened. I though it was one of my kids getting out of bed and hitting the wall until the window rattled. i live in the outer northern suburbs of adelaide. I think it was impressive how the news was on facebook and a group was formed before being reported by msm. I think the group appeared about 5 minutes after.
