Hi mental, thanks for the uplifting posts but keep in mind that what makes us worried is the fact that we're not on a fault line and we never ever get earthquakes. In the 1980s a city in another state got one and there were 13 deaths, that's the only time there's been an earthquake in this country that injured anybody. Here in Melbourne we've only ever had 1 other earthquake in our history.


I understand...

BE safe - walk don't run - get flashlights by your beds - watch for swinging doors -

let your tap water run, if you see any color to the water do not drink it -

drive a bit slower with your lights on

What should we do to be prepared for a major quake.

Other than my shtf bob i got nothing.

Im up three stories and my building would be going down im 99% sure of it.

Where should you go bathtub/shower or doorframe. Anyone got any tips?

What I find rather weird, is the fact that Australia, especially melbourne does NOT get earthquakes, I am aware of one or 2 in the history of australia...

and then 2 in one day ??

thats not right is it ?

I thought the WA quake was off the coast of broome.
Not actually on land, in the sea.
Not just tectonic plates cause quakes.Volcanic activity also does.
There is many volcanoes under the sea.
There is also sub plates.They move to.
But the tectonic plates moving are the quakes you cant hide from you get ground waves and everything is smashed.
If you do some searching, there is always small quakes across Victoria.
And the rest of Australia.
But they usually occur in isolated areas and are so small the vibrations don't make it to large populations.
Like the one today.
The ones down in that area, always seem to get some feeling because they aren't far from large population.

There are also about 10 dormant volcanos in Victoria aswell.

I have dreamt last week of strong winds and dark dark sky during daylight hours. Please tell me that volcanoes aren't associated with strong winds, because I dreamt about the Tsunami 2 days before it happened, vividly, and it had the same power as this recent wind dream).

You are right about the one off W.A but if you look at this it shows another earth quake yesterday that is not on the usgs site

the link you provided doesnt work..

the theory of volcanoes being connected and simultanously becoming active is extremely intriguing and i would like to see a decent map with volcanoes and possibly some sort of underground information aswell....

Everyone please be careful out there! I hope nobody has been hurt at all.

Best of wishes to all of you out that way!

Be in peace.

The paranoia has officially set in for me. I hope there isn't another quake of a volcanic eruption.

I can't help but think the beached whales have something to do with this.

i have been doing a little bit of research on volcanoes in this area.




even though there are no volcanoes really in the area that the quake happened is there any chance that an inactive volcano hundreds of kilometers away could have caused that tremor...




Volcanoes in eastern Australia that have not erupted in thousands of years still pose a threat and emergency services should be better prepared, an expert told a geology conference today.

I am totally intrigued, too.... Honestly, no fault lines?

It would be really nice if we could get some answers, then.

As for what to do in an earthquake, I heard that doorways were the place to be. I remember ducking down underneath them when living in California.

In school we were taught 'duck and cover'. Pretty much squatting down underneath a desk, with hands over head, for some reason...
I haven't lived there in years though, please nobody get hurt out there.


We need a Australia Earthquake thread to be flagged to the TOP threads, so it gets more attention and hopefully answers.
