Hello ATS,

This is my first earthquake thread so im sorry if this is a non story.

There has been a 5.0 Earthquake 20km from Newman in Australia. I am only posting this because it is relatively shallow and i thought shallow earthquakes can cause significant damage.

hisz.rsoe.hu...

Newman has a population of 4245 so im hoping all those people are okay. Cant find anything on this.

en.wikipedia.org...

Stay safe my Australian friends.

Peace

I have lived in Newman for 15 years, we are a town of 8500 people. The earthquake was just after 4am and woke us up immediately. It lasted for between 10-15 seconds and was pretty scary! There is no damage in the town luckily, its just shaken a few people up!

Newman is a Mining town on the edge of the Great Sandy desert 1100km friom Perth Western Australia. I have been here 21 1/2 years and this is the first time i have ever come across something like this here. It happened at 0403 this morning with the house shakiung and was very loud outside. Did not last long but was scary enough, woke us all up and my animals went skitzo...........
