There are mass choppers over the CBD right now flying through the buildings, between buildings, even between apartment complexes.

Ive got some photos and video on my phone.

I really dont believe that it is a coincidence that there was an earthquake in Melbourne, VERY RARE, making it the second one in a month, and now there are military helicopters doing fly bys around the city.

Im not saying something happened to bring the choppers out, but maybe the choppers did something that caused the so called earth quake? Crashed? Blew something up by accident? The earthquake is not registering anywhere on the USGS sites.

AS mentioned by Alex Jones, they're here for training and have been all week. I spotted them in the CBD on Sunday, too.

Hey thanks there Mr chadwickus

I new there was a reason for them wasting tax dollars

Now the Tonga thing.
I cant see how its related.
Because Tonga is generally off the East of Aussie in the middle.
NSW QLD would get something to.
And NZ would most definitely.
And Fiji.
Its gotta be our little Melbourne fault

I live about 120km from Melbourne and I felt this. It actually shook the house quite a bit. This recent earthquake activity is very strange.

Sure ok, but does that rule out the fact that maybe they accidently blew something up or crashed into something resulting in this so called "earthquake" that doesnt show up on any USGS or like sites?

Like I said, if you had read my post, I am not saying these choppers came out because of the shake, but perhaps the tremor was a result of them.

Nice work Chadwickus Maximus!

Hopefully it will dispense of the quickfire paranoia already surfacing in this thread.

That could be a possibility, all I did was link to an article explaining why the choppers are in Melbourne.

LOL CC! Is that 'generally' as in sometimes, all the time or in the general direction? I just wanted to make sure that Tonga wasn't in other places sometimes.

Im on La Trobe street right in the heart of the city and have seen several fire trucks heading south east, the same direction as the choppers...

Sounds like something blew...
or they blew something up.

as far as i know Australia doesnt have any major fault lines. and 2 4.3 -4.4 earthquakes in as many weeks is highly unusual i did feel it this time but not the last.

now you can pass it off as nothing major if one lived in an area prone to these sorts of things ,but i cant remember ever experiencing so many earthquakes so close in proximity to one another.

i know there will be conspiracy theories about all this, but lets just look at all the facts before we start running for the hills.

I was apparently driving when it happened.
A 4.5 would be hard to feel when driving.
Ive just asked friends family everyone, none of them felt it out here in eastern suburbs.
And some of them were walking at the time.
Pretty weird.
The last one.
Wasn't there something going on in Tonga's volcanoes?
That time?

I felt it too. Lived here or nearby all my life, never felt an earthquake before, 2 in a few weeks? hmmm statistical outlier to the max, wonder if something fishy is going on

My mate just tells me, they found evidence of undersea volcanoes, under Tasmania and Victoria.
And underneath the sea in the entire region.
Forget about tectonic plates.
Its volcanic activity causing this.

ok who or what are the possible culprits

1. tectonic plates

2. undersea volcanoes

3. underground nuclear testing

4. underground excavation (possible construction of underground bases)

any other possibilities?

I was riding my bike so I didn't feel it, but my girlfriend in Melbourne did. I doubt any of this is worth worry though... however it's interesting!
