Magnitude-4.7 earthquake rocks area surrounding Lake Muir in WA’s Great Southern More Here;

Residents in parts of WA’s Great Southern report feeling an earthquake overnight, which seismologists say is an aftershock following last month’s larger magnitude-5.7 tremor.

The magnitude-4.7 earthquake near Lake Muir, north of Walpole, was recorded soon after midnight and was felt more than 100 kilometres away.

There have been no reports of damage, but residents reported feeling swaying as far afield as Denmark and Albany.

The quake was recorded at a depth of 5 kilometres.

The tremor follows a magnitude-5.7 quake in the region a month ago, which caused minor damage.
