Hi Tempo,
I was really amazed how this earthquakes was reported by some, oh yes it was Very Strong, that strong it shook the windows. :)

It may have been strong and scary to be at home, but I didn't see any major damage reported at all.

Oh No!
How will Victoria ever recover??
(apologies to NZ)

5.4?

It doesn't even get into the papers here (NZ) unless it's over 6 (Remember it's a logarithmic scale)

Hi Mags, Australia sits in a very stable area, we are unlikely to have any big earthquakes. A bit of damage and sometimes lives lost but we will never see quakes like you see in some places.
Hi River, I hear a few people were crushed to find their beers spilled after being knocked over by the viscous shaking.
Hi TSB, Agreed mate, it's a pretty feeble earthquake but thats how we like them here. Here in Western South Australia we get 1 or 2 shakes every five years or so, mostly around 3 on the scale. I've never felt one.
Hi Windsmoke, Its nice to laugh but this one was a little one thankfully. I'm glad there were no injuries or substantial damage.
