Earthquake Tremors Felt In WA and SA

A magnitude 4.3 earthquake has struck in the south of Western Australia at Norseman, in the Goldfields-Esperance area.

The quake was detected at 12.19am local time on Thursday, the Bureau of Meteorology said.

Based on the magnitude and location of the quake, which struck at a depth of 17km, the Joint Australian Tsunami Warning Centre has determined there is no tsunami threat.

Earlier a magnitude 3.2 quake rattled Adelaide about 8.30pm on Wednesday local time.

The quake was recorded at Mannum in the Murray Darling region at a depth of 12km, according to Geoscience Australia.

Locals reported a tremor that rattled windows.

"I felt the windows of my house shake in Payneham," senior seismologist David Love told the ABC.

"We wondered quite what it was.

"It was just a gentle rattling of windows, no sound of any plane or anything, and I thought 'oh it's going on a bit long for an earthquake'."
