    I was in a shop in Warragul and it shook strongly for about a minute from start to finish. Similar intensity to the one in about 1977 or 78 I think which is the strongest in my experience.

    Geoscience Australia website states magnitude 6.0 centred at Mansfield 10km deep.

    Showed up as a very faint semblance of a line, mainly on our southern seismographs here in NZ at about the 35 minute mark on the diagram below.

    Felt it at my place. House was shaking like a bowl of jelly.

    At first I was wondering what was going on. By the time I realised what it was, I started heading for the door it stopped before I got outside.

    I reckon it lasted about 10 to 15 seconds.

    6 on Richter scale.

    I was asked " Is it ignorance or apathy?" I replied "I don't know and I don't care."
