Earthquakes aren’t really a thing in Australia. If they ever happen, they’re usually tiny. One shook residents on the border of Queensland and New South Wales this morning, however, with reports of a 5.2 magnitude quake measured off the coast.
According to Geoscience Australia, the quake struck at 9:41am AEST off the coast of South East Queensland, at a depth of 35km.
No damage has been reported, however the estimated 5.2 magnitude quake means that shaking could have been felt up to 200km away according to Geoscience Australia.
Many on social media felt it.
