no news items yet to include as its only just happened. from the looks of the info on rsoe, it centred in the outback right on the boarder. more details as they come in.

while others may not think its big...the last 5.6 we had was back in 1989 in Newcastle which had fatalities.

5.6 in the outback?

probably wasnt anyone there to feel it.

Certainly wasn't felt by me here in Adelaide.
Quite unusual for Oz to get one of that magnitude, especially in the outback of all places.

Yes there will be more to come in that area,but dates and times are uncertain but we know where they come from and that is important.

There are plenty of fault lines in Australia.

In fact, this article specifically mentions Southern Australia.

Yeh, I'm in Adelaide and felt nothing.

Still, given the frequency of our quakes (or lack thereof) and relative strength this is out of the norm and could even be related to the 188 day cycle.....as much as I'm loathed to admit......or it is just coincidence....

Precisely...seeing even 1 EQ on the Quake map in Australia is very rare.....

It's not as rare as you think, it's jsut that we don't often get many that can be felt...

Been plenty in the area already...

Yes, apologies, we don't get larger ones like that.

well that is quite vague. How do you know this and who is we? you seem to try and put yourself out there as an expert on quite a few threads.


Seems odd to have a 5.6 in SA, even if it is way north.

Guess it's sparsely populated around there? I don't know? Hopefully!

Yeh, it's outback......WAY outback.

A couple of Kangaroos, Dingoes...and maybe a Gecko felt it.

OK, it's not really. There would have been plenty who felt it. Alice Springs may have, tourists at Uluru probably would have.

that is bugga all...when I was outback I had to change the roll on the "siesm[wtf = i, e, or an a?) graph" every morning and 5.6 is like a small case of flatulence...out in the Southern Flinders, that isn't anything even worth talking about.

Maybe a 7+ but even then, if you got excited, everyone would laugh and think you were an idiot because it isn't anything worth mentioning.

It also depends on the depth and out where I was, Woomera way... Strezleki Desert..mining can cause up and register up to a 5 so don't worry.
