  7. Smee,
    I just felt something on whilst lying on my bed...I have felt this feeling before, though of a much wilder nature..again lying on a bed in Los Angeles some years ago (thought I'd surf the bed out of the Hotel window that time!).
    I did feel a few little shakes in Templestowe mate, and I must admit my mind did race off to the Los Angeles event.

    Stay away from any coastlines/beaches folks... Just a general precaution.
    Though of a minor nature in this case, there are always aftermaths...
    Take care one and all.

  18. Felt some mild perturbations whilst at home (Bayside). Thought it was a dump truck or something going past - there's a bit of building happening around here.

    Didn't realise it was a tremor until I saw this thread.
