Earthquake felt in Darwin

A 6.7 magnitude earthquake in the Banda Sea off Indonesia was felt in Darwin this morning. 

The quake happened at 11.17 (AEDT) north east from the Island of Timor Lest and measured a depth of 180km. 

Nine News reports residents in the Northern Territory took to social media saying they felt the quake. 

"In Humpty Doo. Thought someone was shaking the couch but no one is here but me, and the Christmas tree and TV were swaying," one woman reportedly posted. 

"Yep shook our whole couch from side to side and the Xmas tree was swaying out here in Herbert," another wrote.

"Probs the most intense tremor I have experienced in Darwin in more than 30 years. Yikes!" one man wrote. 

The quake has not led to the issuing of any Tusnami warnings - for Australia, Indonesia or East Timor.
