Orroroo / MMI III (Weak shaking)
Peterborough sa / MMI V (Moderate shaking)
Between Burra and Clare, mid north SA / MMI IV (Light shaking): Very deep rumble, not a lot of shaking as much as just the deep sound. 5-7 seconds long. Dogs were scared before i heard it roll through. Power went out directly.
Yongala, SA / MMI IV (Light shaking): Felt the same as a passing train sans train.
adelaide hills / MMI III (Weak shaking): i havent felt a rumble like this since Graham Downs celebrated his anniversary, just a faint rumble up here in the hills
woodside / MMI III (Weak shaking): it wasn't much, but it was a fair way from us. it felt like Graham Downs was on the job for valentines.
Peterborough / MMI IV (Light shaking)
Peterborough S.A. (20.8 km SSE from epicenter) [Map] / MMI V (Moderate shaking): Fell asleep on lounge floor watching tv, which was still on, & I was awoken by a strong, tremor that vibrated through the floor & rattled the windows @ 12.19am Sat 15th February & lasted 10 secs, maybe. Very scary, as haven't felt one in in over 20 years this strong! I've just recently returned from a cruise to New Zealand & didn't feel one there!!
