on the move.

The Southern hemisphere has had an active day, with tremors rocking Wellington (NZ) and Melbourne (Australia). 

Just before midday, Melbourne experienced a 3.2 magnitude tremor in the south-eastern suburbs, the epicentre striking at Korumburra.

With the NZ neighbours also experiencing a shock in Wellington – scoring 6.5 in magntitude – beurologists are simply stating that it is a “shaky day” for Mother Nature.

“There will be aftershocks, that’s a certainty,” Senior seismologist Clive Collins told the Herald Sun earlier today. 

The last Victorian quake saw more than 200 aftershocks for the state, leaving predictions for more movement to be expected this time around.

Fortunately for the two countries, little damage has been reported.
