THE LAND OF OZ HAS STRANGE SHAKING GOING ON

Right now Australia is embroiled in political protests over COVID lockdowns (the government there is actually barring media outlets from filming the crowd from helicopters!)

The governmenwt has suspended all construction for 2 weeks.. that will cause some issues now that more than a few places have been dealt damage from really puzzling earthquakes that just should seem to be occurring where they are…

An unusually strong earthquake struck in an unusual portion of Australia (9:15 am September 21, local time), puzzling experts with its intensity and location.

Registering a magnitude 6.0, the earthquake outside of Melbourne is the largest onshore earthquake in Victoria in recorded history.

There have been numerous aftershocks, including a a 4.7 that occurred about 15 minutes after the main shock. Melbourne is the second largest city in Australia, with a population of roughly 5 million people.

According to press reports, scientists are working to understand why today’s earthquake was as strong as it was and why it struck where it did.
