Melbourne, Victoria — A magnitude 5.8 earthquake shook the city of Melbourne on Wednesday with an unusually strong tremor in Australia.
The quake occurred 10 km (6 miles) deep, near the town of Mansfield, northeast of Australia’s second most populous city, says Geoscience Australia.
The media showed an image of a brick damage on Chapel Street on the outskirts of South Yarra.
Mayor Mark Holcomb of Mansfield said he was unaware of any reports of damage in the town.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison said there were no reports of serious injuries.
Since the 2019 magnitude 6.6 earthquake struck 210 km (130 miles) from Bloom’s northwest coast town, it was the largest quake in Australia.
