An earthquake measuring 3.7 shook the town of Norseman earlier this morning.
The quake, referred to by Geosciences Australia as significant, occurred about 5.15am at a depth of about 12km and north of the town.
Geosciences said the quake could have been felt by people about 40km away.
A spokeswoman for the Shire of Dundas in Norseman says no damage to property has been reported so far.
“It just felt like a big heavy truck coming down the road,” she said.
“It went for a good few minutes - at least it felt like it.”with AAP
