Perth tremor: Parts of WA woken by earthquake
Parts of Perth and surrounds have woken to the earth shaking after an earthquake this morning.
The magnitude-4.7 quake was recorded west of Wagin at 5.24am with a depth of 8km, 6PR Breakfast has confirmed.
One listener told host Gareth Parker the foot of her bed lifted four inches in the air.
Geoscience Australia senior seismologist Tania Pejic said there had been a swarm of activity in the past few weeks and aftershocks this morning, with more than 600 reports from people.
“Some of those reports are coming from as far as Bunbury and Perth and we expect that number to go up.” she said.
