Minutes ago, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) reported a 7.6-magnitude earthquake near Darwin, Northern Territory, Australia at a depth of 200km.

Since it is still early, the exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be changed again later on as seismologists review their data and calculations, or else as other agencies issue their own reports.

The major earthquake was most likely felt by a huge number of people in Australia and neighbouring countries. It is most likely that there is damage to infrastructure. There is no risk of a tsunami.

More details to follow.
