Australian Goldfields Rocked by 5.0 Earthquake, Largest in 50 Years
April 20, 2010
Hundreds of schoolchildren and miners were evacuated when the biggest earthquake in 50 years hit Australia’s Goldfields earlier today, causing damage to buildings in two towns. So far, only two people have been reported as being treated for minor injuries.
The shallow, 5.0 magnitude quake struck about 8.20am local time (23.20GMT), 10km (six miles) north-east of the gold mining city of Kalgoorlie and the neighbouring town of Boulder in Western Australia.

Tremors were felt up to 200km (124 miles) away from the epicentre of the quake, which struck at a depth of 10km and caused structural damage to many buildings, including local pubs.
Locals in Kalgoorlie, including some who initially thought the quake was one of the regular blasts from the nearby mines, said it lasted about 20 seconds.
One woman said her family had sheltered beneath door frames for fear their house would collapse around them, while other residents said holes had appeared in some roads.

The worst-hit buildings were historic structures in the centre of nearby Boulder, a remote town about 600km (370 miles) east of Perth which sprang up in the wake of Australia’s 1800s Gold Rush.
In Boulder, rubble littered some streets in the aftermath of the quake which damaged at least six of the town’s hotels, including the historic Golden Eagle Hotel.
The hotel was left with cracks in the walls, holes in the ceiling and the balcony was left hanging off the building’s facade.

Hundreds of children from three local schools were evacuated after a ceiling collapsed in one building, while others were declared unusable after the quake.
Miners were also evacuated from the Kalgoorlie Consolidated Gold Mines Super Pit – the largest open pit gold mine in Australia –
as well as several of the area’s underground mines as several aftershocks shook the region.

John Wulf, a cleaner at the Kalgoorlie Hotel, told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation he had felt an aftershock but it “was nothing like the major one”.
“I was inside and I took off outside very quickly,” Mr Wulf told the ABC of his reaction to the earthquake. “I’ve been through earthquakes before but I haven’t felt one like that before.”

Annie Fowler, owner of the Criterion Hotel in Kalgoorlie said it was “pandemonium” in town. “We’re living in this big mining area.
There’s a big hole here and there’s underground tunnels everywhere,” Ms Fowler told Sky News. “It certainly ruined my cup of coffee this morning.”

Geoscience Australia spokesman Chris Thompson said it was largest shallow area earthquake to rock Australia in decades.
“It’s certainly the largest event in 50 years for the area, and possibly the biggest since we have begun recording in the early 1900s,”
Mr Thompson told The Times.
Mr Thompson said there had previously been a magnitude 4.5 earthquake in the Boulder area in 1987.

He said Australia experiences earthquakes of a magnitude 5.0 or larger on average once a year, however they rarely occur in populated areas.
The largest known on-shore earthquake to hit Australia occurred in Meeberrie, WA, in 1941 and was estimated to be of a magnitude of 7.2.
Damage from that earthquake was relatively small because of the low population in the epicentral region.

5.6 earthquake South Australia
March 23,  2012
 The US Geological Survey is reporting a 5.6 magnitude earthquake has struck in outback South Australia.
The quake hit just before 8:00pm (CST) at a depth of 10.7 kilometres.
The epicentre was 370 kilometres west-north-west of Oodnadatta, near the Northern Territory-South Australian border.

AUSTRALIA  Intensifying forces of nature: Townsville begins clean-up after freak storm and powerful mini tornado
March 21, 2012
– SES crews and the Army will help the clean-up in Townsville after a freak storm ripped through the city, as the weather bureau warns of more heavy rain for the region. Residents have described terrifying ordeals of being forced to huddle in their hallways and bathrooms as the storm tore open their homes early this morning. Premier Anna Bligh and LNP leader Campbell Newman have flown into the city, putting election campaigning on hold as they assess the area. Ms Bligh has declared the region a disaster zone and says the storm was akin to a “mini-tornado,” packing winds of up to 130 kilometres per hour. About 60 properties have been badly damaged and some buildings have collapsed, with much of the devastation centred on a one-kilometre radius around the suburb of Vincent. Shane Fayers, his wife and their two children were forced to take shelter in their toilet as the storm destroyed the top floor of their two-storey home. “Front kitchen’s gone, living room, dining room and just the front porch that was all roofed that’s gone. It’s just smashed everything,” he said. Further down the street Tracy Thomas lost part of her roof and fence. Erin Matinca said, “The whole house was shaking. The whole upstairs was just shaking. The sound was quite horrifying. It was very scary, but it was all over in a matter of a minute or two minutes. It was just unbelievable,” she said. -ABC

Devastating mini-tornado hits Australian city
A devastating "mini-tornado" tore through the city of Townsville, ripping roofs off houses, snapping trees in half and injuring 13 people as wild weather pounded northern Australia.
The Queensland State Emergency Service (SES) said it received dozens of calls for help, with 13 people needing treatment, mostly for cuts and abrasions. Three were hospitalised.
"Rapid Damage Assessments in the Townsville area have recorded approximately 60 homes with varying degrees of roof damage," the SES said, adding that at least six of the properties suffered significant structural damage.
Meteorologists, who said the freak storm could not officially be called a tornado as there was no funnel, recorded winds of up to 111 kilometres (69 miles) per hour, leaving thousands of homes without power.

Quakes rattle towns in Australia's southeast
9 June 2012  Officials in the New England region of the Australian state of New South Wales are breathing a sigh of relief, with no major damage found from two earthquakes that hit on Friday night.
Residents were shaken when two magnitude-4.2 quakes hit within a few minutes of each other.
More than 400 people have reported feeling tremors or hearing loud noises. Many called police because they thought they were being robbed.

Gunnedah Shire Mayor Adam Marshall says he has never heard of a tremor in the region before.
"I guess no-one's really thought about checking their insurance policy for anything like earthquake damage," he said.

Magnitude-6 Earthquake Strikes Off Australia's Macquarie Island
June 22, 2012  (RTTNews) - A powerful earthquake of 6.0 magnitude struck in the Pacific Ocean off Australia's remote and sparsely-populated Macquarie Island on Friday, according to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).
The USGS reported that the quake struck at a shallow depth of 6.2 miles at about 3:30 p.m. local time, with its epicenter located some 14 miles northwest of Macquarie Island.

There were no immediate reports of casualities or damages, and the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center is yet to respond to the tremor.
Macquarie Island is located in the southwest corner of the Pacific Ocean, about half-way between New Zealand and Antarctica. Politically, it is part of Tasmania, Australia, since 1900 and became a Tasmanian State Reserve in 1978. In 1997 it became a World Heritage Site.

The island is home to the entire Royal Penguin population on earth during their annual nesting season. Ecologically, the remote island is part of the Antipodes Subantarctic Islands tundra ecoregion.
Since 1948, the Australian Antarctic Division (AAD) has maintained a permanent base on the island. The population of the base, the island's only human inhabitants, usually varies from 20 to 40 people over the year.

Bizarre Foam Covers Beach and Streets in Beachside Australian Town
1/28/13  Residents of Mooloolaba, a beachside Australian town, woke to an unexpected sight on Monday morning -- the beach and streets covered in up to 10 feet of foam.
The frothy white substance is a freaky side effect of Tropical Storm Oswald, which caused damage throughout Queensland. Turbulent waves forced pockets of air into the ocean water, producing the foam that blanketed the area.
Tourists and residents were enjoying the fluff, playing in it and taking lots of pictures. But they had to tread carefully. In a video posted to YouTube, police and onlookers were stunned to see a car emerge out of the foam like a sea monster rising from the deep.

Stunning images of Australian dust storm
Jan 11, 2013
'Eerie and amazing' images of a dust storm in western Australia have been posted online. As southern Australia 'sizzles' in an extreme heatwave, the 'meteorological phenomenon' rolled over western Australia.
Buzzfeed posted incredible images of a 'meteorological phenomenon' which showed a huge dust storm off the coast of western Australia. As it moved over the water it looked like a tangible substance, dense and unyielding.

The photos were taken by various Australians and are posted on Facebook at Perth Weather Live. The images have received media attention and various comments. Most of the photos were uploaded from mobile or cell phones. In one photo, the Macedon Gas project site looks like the aftermath of a disaster. One comment on this image read, 'makes nice picture but not good for the aircon'.
The dust storm off the coast of Onslow, Western Australia, is predicted to be followed by tropical cyclone Narelle, according to the Australian.

The Australian Bureau of Meteorology said the dust storm was not directly linked to Tropical Cyclone Narelle. Narelle is currently hundreds of kilometres off shore. The dust storm met with strong winds and rain as it passed over Onslow, resulting in it 'dumping sand and dust' it had picked up. Winds with a speed of 102kph were recorded.
Category-three cyclone Narelle continues to track its way to Australia and wind speeds at its centre are estimated to be 250km/h. Western Australia is known for its gas production and precautionary measures are being taken. Flights are on stand-by to evacuate workers, if necessary, According to the Australian,

Seven people died as a result of Cyclone Bobby in February 1995, and three more lives were lost during Cyclone George in March 2007.
Strong winds, with increasing speeds and destructive gusts, will continue Friday and Saturday. The main area affected will be Whim Creek and Onslow in Western Australia plus, later on Friday, the Karratha area.
