Earthquake in Melbourne


I'd got back from Canberra last night about 8-30pm.  It had been a long day and I was wearily sitting in my office at home in the north of Melbourne when, at around 9-00pm, I heard what sounded like a motor outside the window - weird enough for me to stop and think 'What is that?'. Then the window frame itself started shuddering for 10 seconds or so.  It was an earthquake of magnitude 4.6 - the second I can recall experiencing in Melbourne.

I guess that puts paid to the Pangea commentary about Australia not having earthquakes and being stable enough to store the world's used uranium rods?
