Earthquake shakes Melbourne suburbs


www.abc.net.au

The United States Geological Survey reported on its website the tremor was a magnitude 4.7 quake, about 96 kilometres from Melbourne, and Geoscience Australia says the tremor was centred near Korumburra.

There have been no reports of injury and police are urging people not to call 000 unless they have been injured or suffered property damage.

Victoria Police and the State Emergency Service also say there has been an earth tremor but said there are no reports of any damage so far.

Terry Ryan from the Bureau of Meteorology says the tremor struck just before 9:00pm (AEDT).

"At 8:55pm there was an earthquake 5.5 kilometres north-west of Korumburra, which of course is in South Gippsland," he said.

"At this stage the estimation was 8 kilometres deep."

Wow after the beached whales and dolphins post this one really hits.
I felt the quake and jumped out of my computer chair as quick as i could.

I was playing Empire total war, so the sounds of cannons and battle were loud, but when the whole apartment block shook I started to crap. I knew it was something else straight away.

My question to everyone is how do we get a 4.7r quake in Melbourne when we are so far away from any major fault lines?

Could it be HAARP? or are my ATS senses on nerve.

Yep, and there's a discussion thread on it aswell here:

We don't get earthquakes here, which is why this is worrying - it's not normal. (to the non-Australians).

Don't need to be on a tectonic plate boundary for there to be an Earthquake. Although it is rare for it to happen; is is by no means unusual and has happened in the past.
