09:15 pm - Someone's taking the whole "Four seasons in one day" thing a bit too far.
So, there was just an Earthquake in Melbourne.

What the fuck, universe. What the actual fuck.

Melbourne's not in an earthquake zone, that shit does not happen around here.

And yet, well, just take a look at melbournemaniac or Twitter.

And actual genuine earthquake. What the hell?

(Before anyone asks - it wasn't a bad earthquake, furniture shook and rattled but nothing fell here, and as far as I know no-one is hurt. I'm just weirded out, because WTF, seriously)

ETA: A US Earthquake site says it was of magnitude 4.7. The Australian site has, naturally, crashed.
Current Mood: confusedconfused

Oh wow. That's fucking weird. (Though at least it was only a four-pointer. They're scary, but nothing too bad ever seems to really happen. We had one of those out here a year or two ago.)

I the ABC streaming and they're making me laugh. But then I'm in the San Francisco area, so eh...yeah.

Mainly it's all the people calling in going 'OMG!' Although after I posted the first comment, a bloke called from the Dandenongs saying he wasn't too thrilled. He'd lost his place in the fires, and now this. =/

Indeed. Poor buggar. A lot of people in the fire regions were calling in, but he was the only one that was directly affected by the fires, and now this.

I'm wondering what the hell is going on with the whole bloody country! The fires blew me away with their intensity. And I've seen some bush fires in my day. Then the flooding up in the Pilbara is a 'wtf?' for me...especially the fact that Exmouth has gotten it's annual total of rainfall in just this past 3 weeks.

Yeah, I feel rather sorry for that guy.

Global warming. Climate change. Impending apocalypse. Some sort of shit is going down.

Funny you should mention that...SBS news show 'Insight' just did a show on the effect of climate change on Australia. The first segment was about the fire hazards in Australia, and how they're expected to get worse by 2050. =/

I saw a link for it on one of me facebook groups. The section on cyclones featured a couple from Exmouth, that went through Vance. the episode is here.

Some childhood mates of mine went through Vance, and the 10th anniversary is coming up here in two weeks. When I lived there, we got nailed all the time and it was nothing really...then Vance hit and me mates said the attitude changed. =/
