Now that was a different sort of a night.

Woken up at 11 27 with the house rattling & a big rumble.
Bounced out of bed. Heart rate 200 to the minute
Thought am I dreaming or was that thunder??
Awake 5.30 am news Quake in Adelaide Hills.
That explains it I am not losing the plot.
Any one else nearly nearly poo themselves.????

Accordfing to official reports, there have been some 20 earthquakes recorded in SA recently. The highest 5.1 to the lowest 0.6 So all said and done, they are not all that uncommon except for the fact that the majority are not preceptable to us mere humans.

Hi Daz
The Radio made a big error this morning. They said it was the biggest quake in over 20 years for South Australia - WRONG. We had a 5.5 quake about 15 years ago in the mid north. The centre was near Farrell Flat and in Clare, some 18 kilometres away the whole placed rocked and many fine old building developed very big cracks. That time it was during the day and many people ran into the streets to see what was happening.

We are all so lucky, as it is makes one think what is would be like in places like China now where again it has flattened towns with hundreds of people still missing.

Cheers

Centre was near Birdsville.
I recall one in the 50s in Adelaide that did quite a lot of damage. It knocked all the groceries off the shelves in my Dad's shop.

I think maybe the Earth has had a gutfull with far too many little humans crawling all over it, like nits on a head, it's giving the warnings, especially in China. but what makes me wonder is how the hell is half-Penny Wong going to stop the massive amount of pollution going into the atmosphere from that awesome volcano in Icelandic, activity had increased and has showed no sign of abating . I keep saying the amount of pollution from mere humans has nothing that go anywhere near volcanoes, The most notable previous example of Icelandic volcanic activity causing problems for Britain was in 1783, when an eruption at Laki sent a huge toxic cloud of sulphur across Western Europe, killing an estimated 23,000 Britons. of course Pompei was another bad one,
