Western Australia is startled by an earthquake with a magnitude of 6.5 in the Indian Ocean – when startled residents report that they vibrate strongly
Western Australia has been shocked by an earthquake with a magnitude of 6.5 in the Indian Ocean.
The submarine earthquake occurred at 3.39 pm on Sunday off the coast between Port Hedland and Broome in the Indian Ocean, GeoScience Australia reported.
There is no threat of a tsunami on the Australian mainland, islands or territories, the weather agency says.
The shakes were felt by residents all over the coast, from the Kimberley region to Pilbara.
In some stores near the coast, products were sent off from shelves.
A photo taken in the cosmetics aisle at Target showed items stretched out across the floor as confused customers looked.
More to come.
