Perth experiences tremors as earthquake rocks the South-West

FRIDAY has started shakily in Perth as some residents were woken by earthquake tremors early this morning.

The 5.4 magnitude earthquake struck at 5.10am this morning in the Lake Muir area near Walpole. roughly 370km from Perth.

However, despite roughly 370km separating Perth and the affected site, residents reported being woken by the quake.

It was the second earthquake Perth has felt this year, following a 5.5 magnitude quake in the Lake Muir area in September.
