“We’ve had several tremors/earthquakes in Victoria and capital city of Melbourne now. May as well declare ourselves as ‘an earthquake city’. It really makes one feel quite on edge,” another said.
The latest incident comes after the Gippsland town of Foster, about 30 minutes southeast of Leongatha, recorded a 3.3 magnitude earthquake on Tuesday.
In the last year, quakes have also rattled Victoria’s Apollo Bay, Colac, Lakes Entrance, Foster, Bacchus Marsh, and Rawson.
