CCTV captures violent shaking during Australia earthquake
This is the terrifying moment strong tremors rocked a house in rural Victoria, Australia on Wednesday morning.
CCTV footage shows the violent rattling brought by the magnitude 6.0 earthquake in Benalla City on September 22. A woman was seen rushing to shield a small child while the shaking went on.
The earthquake struck near Mansfield town near Melbourne, Victoria at a depth of 10 kilometres, Geoscience Australia said. The agency also recorded a magnitude 4.0 aftershock. Tremors from the strong quake were felt up to 800 kilometres away in Adelaide, South Australia.
No casualties or serious injuries have been recorded so far, but some properties were reported damaged, including a burger restaurant that collapsed in Melbourne’s South Yarra suburbs.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison said: ‘We have had no reports of serious injuries, or worse, and that is very good news and we hope that good news will continue.’
The quake is the strongest to rock Australia since the magnitude 6.6 tremor that hit near the resort town of Broome in the Kimberley region last 2019.
