A 5.8 magnitude earthquake has shaken southeast Australia, harming structures and buildings in the city of Melbourne.
The earthquake occurred about 09:15 local time (23:15 GMT) on Wednesday at Mansfield, not a long way from the Victorian state capital.
PM Scott Morrison said “we have had no reports of serious injuries and that is very good news”.
The earthquake was likewise felt in adjoining South Australia and New South Wales (NSW).
It was trailed by two aftershocks of 4.0 and 3.1 magnitude.
While this is probably Australia’s biggest quake lately, it doesn’t seem to have caused huge harm.
Talking from the US, Mr Morrison noted earthquakes were not that common in Australia and they “can be an incredibly, disrupting occasion”.
