Tremors from two earthquakes in regional Victoria felt just minutes apart
The first earthquake hit Lake Eildon National Park at 3.50am with a handful of people reporting the 2.4 magnitude event.
Just southeast of the first earthquake site, 25-minutes later, tremors from the slightly stronger 2.9 earthquake was reportedly felt by 21 people just after 4.15am.
The earthquakes were both recorded to hit the area at a 1km depth.
A minor flood warning was issued just upstream from the affected area on Friday.
“These appear to be on a different nearby fault to the Woods Point earthquakes, closer to Mansfield,” the Seismology Centre tweeted on Saturday.
It comes just two weeks after a magnitude 6.1 earthquake struck inland near the western coast of Indonesia’s Sumatra island.
It killed at least two people and caused tremors that were felt in neighbouring Singapore and Malaysia.
