Tremors were felt across the Riverina today following a magnitude six earthquake in Victoria's north-east.
The earthquake was registered just south of Mansfield at about 9:15am with a depth of 10 kilometres, according to Geoscience Australia.
A second earthquake was measured 15 minutes later at the same location, this time at a magnitude of four.
As well as the Riverina, tremors from the earthquake were also felt in Melbourne, regional Victoria as well as Sydney, regional NSW, the ACT, Adelaide and Launceston in Tasmania.
No reports of major structural damage have been received in NSW however there are reports of significant building damage in Melbourne.
Bronwen Keyes is a resident in Springvale just outside of Wagga and she felt the earthquake while sitting in her living room.
"We were just watching the news and we noticed this vibration and we looked and our windows were all shaking," Mrs Keyes said.
"We're on a big concrete slab so it's not like you're on piers where everything would move but my husband could feel the floor shaking and the roof was shaking as well."
"I ended up going outside just to see what was going on it was just bizarre."
Just witnessed an earthquake in Wagga Wagga, The bed me and the kids were sitting on was rattling and an underground rumble was very audible. We were shocked and ran out to see what was going on... pretty terrifying experience (about 15 minutes back)!— Dr Razia Shaik (@RaziaShaik1) September 21, 2021
