A second earthquake has shaken Melbourne and parts of Victoria. The earthquake, measuring 4.6 on the Richter scale, struck at 4.30pm yesterday, and came twelve days after an earthquake of similar size was felt in the same area.

Ten News said that ‘terrified office workers reported computer screens vibrating on desks, and ornaments falling from shelves.’

Closer to the epicentre, which Clive Collins from Geoscience Australia says was in a similar location to the last earthquake, the publicans of Korumburra described what they felt. John Beardsworth of the Austral Hotel said that the earthquake felt like a truck driving past the hotel. ‘It puts the shivers up me a bit,’ Mr Beardsworth said.

Chris Corr of the Korumburra Middle Hotel said that ‘it felt like there was a strange beast crawling across the roof.’ On the contrary, a Melbourne resident who wished only to be known as ‘Simon’ said that he had not felt the latest earthquake. ‘But, by God, I heard all about it,’ Simon recalled.

At the Herald Sun website, public reaction to the earthquake prompted arguments. ‘You Melbourne people are always real quick to crittersize Moe and the Valley,’ said Joey of Moe. ‘But I don't hear any sympathy when we are much closer to the eppycentre of these earthquakes than you.’
