I felt the same thing. I'm in the house alone and the house shook.
What's going on?

Librarygirl, they've just mentioned it on the news - you probably heard. And I am not on Twitter but I searched it for Melbourne, and it seems to have been felt all over the place. WOW.

No didn't catch the news - an earth tremor?
My son just rang from the grandparents a few kilometres away,
he was pretty alarmed.
My kitty has disappeared - probably hiding under the bed,shaking. Better go and check.

Hi I'm in Mordiallooc and yes we felt the same thing here. When you say "all over Melbourne" where did people feel the earthquake?

Felt it in Kew, it was quite strong (although never having felt an earthquake before I have nothing to compare it to), brick wall wobbling a fair bit.

Yep- here in far kew the walls and floor were shaking.
The elderly Jack Russell slept through it, bluey wasn't worried (though she''s terrified of thunder)

Rumbles in Preston Heights. (I started saying rude things out loud about the traffic, and then realised it was more than a fleet of SUVs hurtling down Plenty Rd.)

Well, we're out in the Far East
(Vermont) and it felt pretty scary.
I wonder where the - is it epicentre? - was?

We shook fairly hard here in Altona - although my cats didn't even wake up. Laura's cats are far more attuned to the ways of the earth. Hippies.

I didn't notice a thing at work in Doncaster and I feel a bit ripped off.

According to yahoo news, there was an earth tremor.

I felt it in Macleod. I had just gone to the kitchen to put the kettle on and heard the low growling noise. I wondered if it was an earthquake but was too embarrassed to say it out loud (I have been accused of catastrophic thinking!), and even felt the glass on the window but it had stopped by then.

Man, I can't BELIEVE it. I narrowly missed ANOTHER earthquake because I was out of town for two days. I'm always away when the fun happens, it seems.

What did everyone in Victoria do this year, break mirrors or something? It's turning into an alarming place to be...
