Earthquake by kazzzz on 6 March 2009 10:05am
We just had a little on here, about 9 this evening, it felt quite strong, the whole house shook for several seconds. We sure are inundated with a lot of natural occurences around here of late.
It was 4.7 apparently.
On this map I'm near Healesville.

I know Mike, it's quite a start to the year!

Very scary! Have you felt an earthquake before in your area?
Re: Earthquake by kazzzz on 6 March 2009 12:55pm
Yes we have , but not for ages, there are a few fault lines around here.

Oh, you poor thing. Glad you're alright. And glad it wasn't a bad one. I felt one in S.F the first night I ever traveled to the west coast. Woke me at 4:24a.m. that morning. It was a 5.4 and I was terrified. lol.

I've been to CA 4 or 5 times, but never felt an earthquake there. There've been a few here in New England, but just enough to make the house shudder for a second or two, like when a plane flies low over the house or a big truck comes up the street.

Glad it wasn't a bad one, Kazzzz.

Good Lord, Kaz, you've been beaten up a bit! I hope that everything gets done with so you can enjoy the rest of the year in peace.

I hope there are enough mental health professionals for all the traumatized people there. Glad you're (relatively) all right.

Glad to hear you're okay, Kazzzz! All the best!
