Earthquake rattles western NSW

A magnitude 3.8 earthquake has rattled central western New South Wales this evening.

Geoscience Australia says the epicentre was 20 kilometres north of Boorowa and 40 kilometres north-east of Young.

It is understood local police have been fielding a large number of calls from concerned residents, but there are no reports of damage at this stage.

It comes just days after a magnitude 5.3 quake struck the Gippsland region in Victoria. Source
