Earthquake Melbourne Lasting for around 30 to 40 seconds

Reports are coming in from all over the city - from the Dandenongs in the east, Bentleigh in the southeast, Pascoe Vale in the west and through the inner city.

Windows were rattled and floors rocked as the tremor hit around 8.55pm local time and and lasted for around 30 to 40 seconds.

The Geoscience Australia website crashed as people flocked online to find out what occurred.

The Bureau of Meteorology said the quake was felt further afield than Melbourne, with reports coming in from Bright and Myrtleford in the northeast and Wonthaggi in the southeast of Victoria. Source
