The Great Melbourne Earthquake of 2012
Australia has earthquakes? I think someone should have informed me of this.
Victoria has been shaken by its biggest earthquake in 30 years. It scared the bejesus out of Laurie at The Texstralians.
Tonight we had an earthquake! It was a mere 5.2 grade but it still scared the living daylights out of me! We live on the 13th floor of a high rise apartment building and it was just a little too strange to feel the whole building swaying. At first I thought my husband was being cheeky and jiggling the couch, but it was actually the building moving! I started to panic and I worried that the building was going to collapse. Let’s hear it for architects and engineers that plan for this kind of thing! The building still stands, praise Hey-zeus!
Matt swears up and down he didn’t feel a thing. My heart was pounding and I was panting like a dog talking to him about it. I don’t feel the need to live through any more of those, thank you!
New sources are reporting the earthquake was a magnitude 5.3 or 5.4. It occurred Tuesday night. Naturally, Australians took to the internet to share their devastating experiences.
