- A strong earthquake has rocked parts of Darwin, with tremors lasting several minutes and felt right across the city and in rural areas. Geoscience Australia says the earthquake measured 7.2 on the Richter scale with its epicentre about 500 kilometres east north-east of East Timor in the Banda Sea. The director of the Australia Seismological Centre in Canberra, Kevin McCue, says the earthquake is unlikely to have caused any damage because it occurred at a great depth.
