Adelaide | A earthquake has been felt across Adelaide, with residents quickly taking to social media to report a “rumble” of about three seconds.

Geosciences Australia has confirmed the tremor  – centred 15-20km south of Blackwood – registered 2.6 on the richter scale.

Earlier this morning, an earthquake registering 3.0 on the richter scale was recorded by the agency in the Flinders Ranges near Hawker.

It is estimated that this earthquake, recorded at 4.30am, could have been felt by people up to 23km away, the agency says.
