    Just heard that there has been a bit of an earthquake near Melbourne, which has been felt as far away as Adelaide and Sydney.

    Hoping that you are all okay and that disruption is minimum.

    Felt it at my place but no damage. Part of a building collapsed in a Melbourne suburb but no one hurt. Nothing like the damage caused in Christchurch earthquake.

    It could have been a bit nasty but the epicentre was about 100 miles from Melbourne. It was supposed to have been felt at Dubbo, north of us but we didn’t feel a thing.

    Didn't feel anything here in this part of NSW but there were a couple of places in NSW where they felt a tremor, surprisingly because they were so far from the place in Victoria, Mansfield.

    I'm in Dubbo but I didn't feel anything. Mind you my kids were making enough noise to block it out probably :D
