We are all so #ed if one of the may dormant volcanos erupts.

How did we get a quake we have no fault lines?

Yo my Aussie mates,

Don't mind a 5.1 and don't shat your pants.
Your building will not fail from such a quake.
Its scary, but it sure reminds you your alive a???

We get the ridiculously scary 6.5 - 7.0 and one day the big one in my city.
No doubt they always come when we are sleeping...

You'll be fine - I now find the rush of terror rather exhilarating myself!


Have a drink on me!

I think what's freaking people out more was that not only are earthquakes pretty rare down there, it was also predicted a few days ago -- not the fact that it was a mere 5.1.

Here's another article on SMH:

Umm if your residence is bulit to withstand an earthquake that may be the case.

We live thinking we would never get an earthquake, since we live near no fault lines.
This is why we are tripping........

the point is that quekes are rare in australia and if they do occur they are usually unnoticed..

does anybody belive that the dredging may have something to do with this....

Interesting thought about the dredging but i dont know enough of how it works....it wouldnt go that deep or extract enough to cause that...would it?

it all depends on what they were doing exactly but it is highly unlikely..

it is very strange that it happened 50-60 kilometers east of phillip island...

this looks like the last one Melbourne had in October 23, 2006

A MAGNITUDE 2.5 earthquake has hit Melbourne and its suburbs, but there are no reports of damage.

Geoscience Australia senior seismologist Dr Phil Cummins said the quake was recorded at 10.36pm (AEST) last night, and it prompted a flood a calls.

It was big enough to send a shudder through buildings, Dr Cummins said, but the quake appears to have done little more than rattle window panes.

“We've got it as a magnitude 2.5 at the moment,” Dr Cummins said early today.

He said the epicentre was just north of the Melbourne suburb of Dandenong, in the city's south-east, and it would have been felt over about a 50km radius.

“We've had reports of people's housing shaking and of hearing a noise, but no damage,” Dr Cummins said.

He said more details on the quake would be released later today when data from a number of stations could be analysed.

Dr Cummins also said the event was not common.

“A magnitude 2.5 (earthquake) around this area is not that rare, but it's not a frequent event either,” Dr Cummins said

My thoughts will be with you Aussies
I hope this doesn't get worse.

how is this possible if we aren't near any fault line?

I would take precaution for the next few days. Everything that's hanging and can fall should be put on the ground. Also make sure there's separate room or shack outside the house you can stay in. What you guys have felt may or may not be a small foreshock. So things can become worse so it's best to take some very small measures that will benefit you tremendously if things come to worse.

I know I saw the question but it looked as though nobody else had so I decided to ask again sorry.

You have to ask your self what would be the point of using HAARP on such a place like Melbourne or is Keven Rud in town tonight? lol but all joking aside why would they bother and if they did why not put some kick in it like a 6 to really get the attention

As Victorians we have NO IDEA what to do incase of an earthquake.
Can anybody enlighten us? As far as I know, it's NOT a good idea to stand under door frames, and it IS a good idea to crouch underneath sturdy tables.

Anything else?
