I have just received a PM from another KP friend letting me know others were wondering how Bundaberg fared in the 'earthquake'.
Well, Bundaberg is still here and so am I!!
The epicenter of the 'quake' was supposedly 50km off the coast between Bundaberg and Gladstone a little north of where we live.
I am glad to reassure everyone all is well here.
Thanks for your concern.

A magnitude 4.4 earthquake was recorded off the Queensland coast near Bundaberg in the early hours of Sunday.

"It was like a small wave went under the house," Gladstone resident Michael Bruce wrote.

"So that's why my mirrored doors in my bedroom shook, was thinking it was a ghost," Kylie Allen said.

"I went outside just after 12 and it was dead silent. No animal noises of any kind. They must know when something is going to happen," Misty Dilli wrote.

One South Bundaberg resident said her dogs "were going crazy" but she had had no idea why.

A Joint Australia Tsunami Warning Centre alert showed the earthquake was 312km north of the Sunshine Coast at 1.31am. No tsunami warning was triggered.

"It is entirely possible that we could have aftershocks," Geoscience Australia Duty Seismologist Marco Maldoni said.

"Whenever there is an earthquake it increases the likelihood of further shocks, but you cannot say with any difinity."

Mr Maldoni said there had been two reports from Gold Coast residents who claimed to have felt the earthquake.

"People have not felt much, so I think it had a fairly weak impact," he said.

"It is mostly just a slight feeling of movement and slight vibrations."

Earthquakes are rare in Queensland but in mid-2015 a series of tremors was recorded off the coast, felt from Tweed Heads to Bundaberg, including one off the coast of Fraser Island on the same day a year ago. Another in the same area last year was recorded as a 5.3 magnitude, which made it one of the largest ever recorded in the state.
