Pretty decent size in terms of spread

I am up near La Trobe University at present, and it really shook everything up here. Picking stuff up that shook itself off shelves. No real damage aside from that.

10km depth is pretty shallow for a magnitude 6, they must have really felt it close to the epicentre, where I am today 175km away today it felt like about 3.5 compared to earthquakes I've been in in NZ and Indonesia..

Took me back to living in NZ a few years back, though not as full-on as a couple we experienced in Wellington.

Knew it was big when I felt the S wave then the P waveform a couple of seconds later.

Looks like I've of the basin edge normal faults going out into Bass Strait.

Yeah, you get the S waves first which oddly a lot of people do not feel if they are too weak, while others are hypersensitive to even very minimal S waves. I read somewhere this is a bit like some people suffering sea sickness while others do not.

Nearly everyone experiences earthquakes with P waves the same as the back and forth wobble.

One little story from my childhood. I was up in the Mallee on a huge property when I was about 9 or 10, standing in a massive field of wheat that came up to about chest height. A small earthquake struck a town nearby and I just happened to be facing the direction the S waves approached from, I could see it ripple across the top of the wheat like the swell rolling in towards you at the beach but much much faster, it was a bizarre scene because you could see crests and troughs over several kilometres of wheat even though the wave height was probably only a couple of centimetres.

Guarantee it was climate change.  Still waiting for that pinhead Bandt to confirm that.

Tectonic plate movement in NZ apparently, so it's the Kiwis' fault!

I understand that the Federal Government is responding to the earthquake by giving NSW a $700M disaster relief package ...
