Augusta-Margaret River Shire (Australia) (148 km W from epicenter)(no details): my house is on stumps, so I suspect was less affected than a building built on a cement pad. I only noticed a couple of items swaying a small amount. my fist thought was wind, but have never felt that reaction before , so though a small tremor (via EMSC)
Port Hedland (Australia) (1562 km N from epicenter)(no details): I went to bed around 3am sunday morning 16-9-18, fell asleep and some time later, I was laying in the bed and thought I could hear drilling from a rig happening...underground. I listened, immediately thought the above but then considered it possibly to be an earthquake,it ran for about 20 mins, but I cant be sure exactly what time, im thinking around the 4,5 or 6am it hadn't started to get light yet. I went back to sleep and and didn't think much about it until this afternoon a family member mentioned an earthquake in Perth, so I went looking to see if there was, this is my story. (via EMSC)
Clarkson (Australia) (315 km NW from epicenter)(no details): People felt 10km from me...I felt nothing....spewin. (via EMSC)
