“It’s certainly not unusual to get aftershocks of this size after a magnitude 5.4 earthquake,” seismologist Jonathan Bathgate told news.com.au about the quake that occured east-southeast of Melbourne.

An earthquake measured at 5.4 on the richter scale hit Gippsland in the state of Victoria a month ago.

“Well, I had just got home and sat down to check my e-mail, when I felt the building shake and the windows and the objects on my desk rattle,” a woman affected by the quake told AAP.

The State Emergency Service (SES) has had no reports of damage or injuries following the earthquake.
