Very Strong earthquake in a nearly unpopulated region of Australia


earthquake-report.com

Update : The earthquake was reasonably close to Yulara (about 100 km) – which had damage through an earthquake in 1989.
Update : These earthquakes are not uncommon in Northern Territory and South Australia with a similar earthquake occurring last year. Click here for more information about historic damaging quakes in Australia (CATDAT).
Update : USGS expects a very strong shaking close to the epicenter as a result of the very shallow depth of only 3,9 km. Luckily, there is no settlement with more than 1000 inhabitants.
A very strong earthquake with Magnitude 5.6 occured in the desert regi

Earthquakes of this size and depth are very rare in Australia. It has been along time since we have had quakes this strong. Could it be a Scalar Weapon test as it is very unusual for the succession of these Quakes, that also happened in South Australia. There is not much coming in at the moment with reports of where it was felt and the continuance of aftershocks. Will post more as links come in.

One of you is wrong. Which one?

Australia has a population density of 3 people per sq. kilometer. As opposed to England with a figure of 259, for instance. Even Afghanistan has a rather crowded per sq km of 54 people by comparison. It isn't a question of where there aren't people in Australia but where there are people. Of course, that's like anywhere...along the coast lines and major cities there.


Odd thing on this one. I used the Euro Quake agency (EMSC) to search ..always skeptical of the 'It's rare!' claim ...but damned if that isn't true in this case. For the interior of Australia, they show only 4 quakes since 2004. 1 of them was at this same spot, same depth and same strength on 03/23/2012. What is at that spot to have generated two quakes over a year apart with matching depth and strength....and virtually nothing whatsoever for activity outside of that? Hmmm......

I wouldn't say either of them are wrong. Once a year could be considered rare, or common; depending on how you look at it. Just my opinion.
