Melbourne shaked by largest earthquake in 200 years.

A earthquake has been recorded in central Victoria today morning at 9:15 local time in the high country near Mansfield.

The quake caused building damage in Melbourne, about 200km to the south-east, and tremors were felt as far afield as Temora, north of Wagga Wagga.

It’s the biggest earthquake recorded in Victoria since 1966, when a magnitude 5.7 earthquake was recorded at Mt Hotham.

The Victorian State Emergency Service received 48 requests for assistance between midnight and 11am today, of which 27 were for building damage.
