Equal to the biggest earthquake Australia ever recorded… 6.9

“As it stands for as long as today, it is equal to the biggest earthquake in Australia ever recorded,” the GeoScience Australia duty seismologist Dan Connolly said.

It equaled the magnitude of an earthquake recorded in Tennant Creek, Northern Territory in 1988.

“An earthquake of this size … the enormous size, it was felt up to Darwin and down to Perth. It is a rare occurrence,” Connolly said.
