    Hopefully. My property is vacant at the moment so PM is going there regularly for opens. I will get them to check there is no obvious damage.

    I think even the above picture of the chair fallen over is a bit of an exaggeration. I felt nothing...

    I reckon some/many of the building cracks photos you see posted on the internet that have turned up since the earthquake are preexisting building cracks and the owners are going "you beauty"...

    Just like the people who were hitting their cars with golf clubs after the Sydney hailstorms way back so the cars would be written off.... the assessors could pick the difference

    And more today - http://www.sunshinecoastdaily.com.au/news/reports-earthquake-tremors-sunshine-coast/2725779/ :(

    Some of the properties I had been looking at up there are on landslide hazard & steep slope overlays & I had been looking at various insurance policies checking out what's covered. They only seem to cover damage from earthquakes if it occurs within 2-3 days of the quake. So I guess if a few small quakes progressively destabilise the ground and damage doesn't show up within that tiny window you would be screwed. I had also been thinking that the Sunshine Coast doesn't get earthquakes :oops:

    Still didn't notice.

    But I was drinking an Admiral Ackbar from fortitude brewing at that precise time (8.4% amber ale deliciousness)

    I swear this is just some psychological experiment where the media puts out reports of earthquakes that didn't actually happen, and they wait and see the publics' reaction. The susceptible/suggestible folk all experience memory distortions that coincide with the media reports. The less suggestible folk shrug their shoulders and wonder what everyone is going on about because they didn't feel a thing.

    Clearly people have never undertaken geography lessons about earthquakes - although they generally occur around the inter-plate boundary fault lines and are more powerful in these areas (i.e. those that places such as New Zealand and Japan sit along), they can and do occur on occasion along the secondary intra-plate fault lines such as those that cross through Central Queensland and diagonally across the Adelaide Hills.

    Very few large earthquakes in Australia cause major damage. Only two have hit major Australian cities in the last century (Adelaide 1954 and Newcastle 1989), of which only one has resulted in fatalities (Newcastle in 1989).
