Multiple Earthquakes Continue To Rock Queensland

Queensland continues to be rocked by multiple earthquakes almost two weeks after a 5.8 magnitude quake hit the northern part of the state.

Although none have lived up to the tremors felt on August 18, residents continue to feel the earth rumble.

According to the Brisbane Times, 10 tremors have hit Queensland over the past week with 35 more recorded during the week of the major quake.

However, it's all perfectly normal say experts.

Geoscience Australia seismologist, Hugh Glanville, told the news site we could still be hearing reports of “aftershakes” for months to come.

“It can go through periods of ramping up and down,” he said before reassuring that it was unlikely to indicate another big quake was coming.


The Geoscience Australia website recorded three quakes in Queensland on Tuesday.

The first at 7.27am was off the coast of Bowen and hit 2.7. It was followed by a 3.9 magnitude quake at 9.38am in the same location.

Another 1.9 magnitude quake hit at 3.20pm around the Airlie Beach coast.
