A strong and shallow earthquake registered by the USGS as M5.2 has hit the Manjimup region, southwest Australia at 21:07 UTC Nov 8. The agency is reporting a depth of 10 km (6.2 miles).
The epicentre was located 64 km (40 miles) ESE of Manjimup, and 330 km (205 miles) S of Perth.
More than 2,500 people have lodged reports with Geoscience Australia after the tremor, but there have been no reports of major damage.
Many residents in Perth described being woken up by the latest earthquake and reported buildings shaking.
“There’s nobody else in my bed and my bed went rocking,” Guildford local Sue told ABC Radio Perth.
Seismic and Volcanic activity has been correlated to changes in our sun.
The global uptick in earthquakes and volcanoes we’ve witnessed lately is likely attributed to the drop-off in solar activity, coronal holes, and the increase in Galactic Cosmic Rays penetrating silica-rich magma.
