Temblor causes damage to some buildings in capital Melbourne, but no tsunami warning issued
MELBOURNE, Sep 22 (AA): A magnitude 6.0 earthquake jolted Australia’s Victoria state Wednesday, damaging some buildings in the capital Melbourne.
A tsunami warning has not been issued so far, government agency Geoscience Australia said in a statement.
The quake reportedly occurred at a depth of 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) near the town of Mansfield, about 200 kilometers (124 miles) northeast of Melbourne.
The agency also reported that a magnitude 4.0 aftershock was later recorded.
While no casualties have been reported so far, the quake was felt as far away as New South Wales and South Australia states.
