We had two BIG shakes here in Peterborough SA at around 11.20pm and one at 11.25pm CDST.

First one was very loud and sounded like rolling thunder and all the windows in the house rattled.

Second one was as loud but no more rattling windows. Checked the house for cracks but have fund nothing.

Dog went off its brain!!

Peterborough lies on the Adelaide/Flinders Ranges Fault Line and we have rumbles and shakes from time to time.

One day..............................................

It's not listed on GA's website yet :HERE , but probably will by the morning if they work weekends.

On that page Willem there is also an earthquake report form if you feel inclined.

Only 2.6 ! That's only a camel belching isn't it ?
Pop over to the 'Shaky Isle's' for a holiday sometime and we might be able to arrange a common 3.5 or even a 4.
7's are rather rare but they can be Very impressive :-))

Well if there shifting, and often, its better than not, and one day, the big one happens.

I would not like to be near yellowstone now.
Looks like some serious, well above average, shallow swarm quakes as the magma below the lake area increases.

if that baby blew........wow, be like the first krakatoa, not the recent one in 1800ish.

Some discussion about it here, with the early info that has since been removed from the yellowstone site.
