Mount Barker / not felt: No shaking felt but heard a loud sounding rumble . Went outside to hear if it may of been thunder but it wasn’t. Noise didn’t last for long but I was certain that it was an earthquake rumble as we had a major one last year & I won’t ever forget the noise. I live 10 minutes of of Mount Barker & my mum lives in Mount Barker & when I told her about it this morning, she also said she had heard it at the same time last night.
