Adelaide rocked by earth tremor
Multi-storey buildings shaken
Several calls made to triple-0
A 3.8 magnitude earthquake rocked Adelaide and the surrounding suburbs last night.

At 12.15am, Geoscience Australia seismologist David Jepsen said the quake hit at 11.27pm with an epicentre somewhere in the Adelaide Hills, AdelaideNow reports.

"It's located in a population centre so expected to be felt quite widely," Mr Jepsen said.

And the feeling would have been even stronger for multi-storey apartment dwellers.

"If you're in a building of many floors the shaking would be amplified, apartments or tall buildings in the city," he said.

However, Mr Jepsen said it was unlikely there would be any aftershocks or major damage from tonight's quake.

"Something of this size, it's highly unlikely there would be any damage."

A police spokesman said there were several calls to triple zero around the time of the tremor, and the Bureau of Meteorology also fielded lots of inquiries.

"There were reports as far away as Monarto and Salisbury," a spokesman said.

Early reports from Twitter users said the quake happened at approximately 11.35pm CST last night.

Twitter users reported houses shaking, while over 3000 Facebook users joined a group titled "the earthquake in adelaide!"
