Posted:Pulled this off the Seismology research centre website:

"006 October 22, Caulfield, Vic, ML 2.9
1236 UTC, 145.03E, 37.87S, normal depth [MEL]
(Sunday October 22, 10:36 pm AEST)
A small earthquake occurred beneath the suburb of Caulfield, about 8 km southeast of the city of Melbourne. It was felt in the southeast suburbs of Melbourne, including Clayton, St Kilda, Elsternwick and South Yarra, with some reports from beyond Dandenong. It was too small to cause any damage."

Posted:Small earthquakes are fun.

Big earthquakes are not.

And week long aftershocks from big earthquakes are really friggin' annoying.

I always thought a earthquakes felt EXACTLY like an out of control subway was going by. A small earthquake felt like you were on the platform as the subway passed. A large earthquake feels like you're the one on the train.


Well, shall we go?
Yes, let's go.

Posted:I heard it... I thought it was an aeroplane going over...

It wasn't until someone told me that there was an earthquake that I clicked..

I remember a couple of similar ones in Geelong growing up.. I like little quakes..
