Tremor hits South Australia, but it's not an earthquake

DID you feel that?

People across South Australia have reported being woken by mysterious tremors that rattled windows and sent pets into a frenzy - but authorities say there was no earthquake.

The tremors and loud rumbles were heard between 2am and 2.30am on Saturday, prompting many people to take to social media to share their experience.

The Geoscience Australia website initially showed a 1.4 magnitude quake around Mount Compass but the notice was removed from the website after further investigations, advising instead that the event was caused by thunder and that no quake had been detected.

Some noted at least two minor shakes, while others reported hearing rumbles that woke them up.
