Magnitude 5.6 Earthquake Rattles NorCal Saturday Night

According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the quake happened at 3:50 Saturday morning.

Darwin residents have been shaken up by a 7.2 magnitude natural disaster.

The quake struck at 2.53pm NZ time, near Indonesia's Tanimbar Islands in the Banda sea at a depth of 208km, the US Geological Survey reported.

Strong shaking caused alarm in the East Timor capital of Dili, prompting people to run out of their houses, a Reuters witness said, but there were no immediate reports of deaths or damage.

There were also unofficial reports of the quake being felt as far west as Goodland and in the Great Bend and Ellsworth areas.

"Wow! first quake I have ever felt, bounced around for about a minute here in Darwin River", exclaimed one resident.

The quake, reported to be magnitude 7.2, was felt in Darwin about 12.30pm local time.

For those curious, the National Weather Service says there is no threat of tsunami.

There were no reports of major damage or injuries, and a tsunami didn't occur.
