Still reported as 6 at the epicentre. Strength was a 4 by the time it reached Melbourne. Think that a 5 would have felt 10 times stronger.

Yep, Richter scale is logarithmic so a 6 is ten times greater than a 5.

I liked Titus O’Reilly’s comment that he fully expects Mt Dandenong to erupt some time today.

Incredible today’s shake was strong as the quake that rocked Newcastle in 1989.

Just lucky the epicentre wasn’t in metro Melbourne.

Son back into his Docklands building after evacuation call.
We had to evacuate the building. Weird experience even watching two light poles near The Dump shake. I thought I was going to have a seizure. I thought this would've come from Moe/Morwell epicentre as they always are. How did Mansfield get this?

The Victorian Alps are young in a geological sense and have faults running through them.

What a shame the dump didn't collapse. I know starting an earthquake is an extreme measure to take by RFC management, to ensure we never have to play a home match there again. But you can only tell the AFL non-brains trust so many times that it isn't our home ground, without them listening, before a club needs to take matters into it's own hands.

True. Isn't it due for a re-construction?
