Two earthquakes hit Eidsvold region
A GEOSCIENCE Australia seismologist says people felt the first Eidsvold earthquake more than 70km away from its epicentre.
"That's a fair distance," duty seismologist Andrea Thom said.
The first earthquake measured 3.2.
Ms Thom said some aftershocks may be felt within the next 24 hours.
"It's just natural earth processes taking place," she said.
Ms Thom said Geoscience Australia relied heavily on feedback from the public when quakes happened.
"Because we don't necessary pick up those smaller events automatically," she said.
"So if someone feels it and lets us know we can check it manually and analyse the event."
GEOSCIENCE Australia has confirmed two earthquakes hit west of Bundaberg this morning.
The first quake measuring 3.2 hit near Eidsvold about 2.20am with a depth of 4km.
The second earthquake, measuring 1.7 and with a depth of 1km, hit the region about 2.55am.
