Dusty dervish I dont think your crazy i am in Burleigh at the foot of Skyline ridge and in a concrete building and have on a number of occasions have felt rumbles including yesterday. sometimes i try and put it down to trucks or explosives in the quarry but it definately rumbles through the floor. No movement of glassware or windows but strange through the floor.

Wonder if after shocks are still possible?

A quake that big should produce aftershocks, for at least the next week.

What is the word from the experts on this little number, do they even have a clue????
A chain of ancient extinct volcanoes extends down the east coast - beginning with the oldest in Nth Queensland (Cape Hillsborough Volcano through to the Mount Macedon Volcano in Victoria). Maybe this hotspot activity is firing back up?

I think its all related to the japanese earthquake and new zeland one, its just a normal pattern i reckon.

Nothing to get worried about.

...just been reading a bit about crustal thickness and seismic waves http://www.earthscrust.org/science/transects/east_aus.html
also found this to be of interest http://www.quakes.uq.edu.au/html/quake_info/OZ_QLD_info.html

Check this link, you will see how often our country rumbles through the month, quite a few, just these last 3 in the last 5weeks were a bit bigger.

Nth Qld Quake: 20.34 degrees S- 147.659 degrees E / depth- 10km at 5:31:19utc april 16

Port headland: 19.861 degrees S- 113.587 degrees E/ depth-13 km at
18:41:19 utc april 17

almost in line, at the same depth. Is there a fault line that we dont know about?

Not likely. You'd see an indication of it in the geology between those two areas if it was there. It often happens that one quake will move something which allows a whole heap of pressure in other areas to be released in a series of other quakes soon after.

hmm, but from one side of Oz to the other is a mighty long way to seek release, especially since there is no fault in sight.

True, but tension does not neccessarily need to follow a fault. You can also flex across 'solid' rock, much like flexing a plastic ruler. I'm not suggesting that the Nth Qld fault did cause the Port Headland one, just that the two may not be as related as they appear.

I agree. They may not be related at all. But then again, what do we know?:)
It just pays to keep investigating odd occurances so that we don't get too complacent and just accept what ever tidbit we are fed, and expected to believe, as gospel.Once in a 100 year floods, a monster cyclone, and now earthquakes? Something is not happy, and my lousy airconditioner,my 5km roundtrip in the car, to the shop, my cows farhting, are not the cause.

This vid is for those weather gurus who understand jetstream and its effect on the weather, and explains the HAARP influence very nicely.

Nothing to get too excited about natural disaster wise. A chain of volcanoes isn't suddenly going to erupt anywhere along the east coast or anything like that. http://www.quakes.uq.edu.au/html/quake_info/townsville.html 493 in this area since records started. Largest 5.5 so close to the record but missed it by that ... much.

Damn! I reckon a few active volcanoes would give the tourism sector a much needed boost grin

Edit Reason: Last volcano to erupt on mainland was Mt Gambier ca. 5000 yrs ago
