I ,along with many other Victorians in Australia,experienced my first earthquake this morning about 9:15 am.
It was recorded as a 5.9 magnitude.and an after shock of 4.0 magnitude.
I was having a lay in bed due to the fact my wife had a bad night due to her health problems which affected my sleep as well.
And I thought geeeze she`s making a lot of racket coming up the passage to the bedroom with her walker and then the bed started shaking like crazy . I thought my computer`s going to hit the deck along with the printer as other things started to fall over.
Our house sits on concrete stumps and the thought went through me that the house could collapse ,but thankfully there was no structural damage that I could find.
Apparently it was felt far and wide covering most of Victoria / NSW and even Tasmania.
Anybody else here had a similar experience ?
