"My chair moved and I heard a rumble," said a woman from Canning Vale to 7 News.

"My windows began to vibrate as always when the construction works are moving along the road, it must have been the earthquake," added another man.

A third woman from Harrisdale told the publication that her bed was shaking and that the light from the ceiling was moving from one side to the other.

There is no threat of tsunami to the mainland of Australia, the island or the territories, says the center.
