2014 December 20 @ 8:50pm AEDT, Offshore S of Marlo VIC Magnitude 3.4

2014 December 7 @ 7:54am AEDT, Winchelsea VIC Magnitude 2.6
This earthquake occurred approximately 4km northeast of Winchelsea, approximately 30km west of Geelong, VIC. This event was preceded less than a minute earlier by a magnitude ML 1.9 foreshock
2014 December 4 @ 6:05am AEDT, Pakenham VIC Magnitude 3.4
This earthquake has been widely felt in Melbourne’s southeastern suburbs and in the Gippsland region, and it is possible that it could be felt at up to 50km from the epicentre. The earthquake was around 18km deep, and an event of this magnitude and depth is unlikely to have caused damage.
In the few hours since the earthquake there have been no aftershocks, which is in contrast to yesterday’s Korumburra earthquake of similar magnitude which had at least 9 aftershocks in the 24 hours after the earthquake. The Korumburra event was much shallower at around 8km deep, and was 50km further east (about 100km east of Melbourne). The difference in behaviour is not unusual because the two earthquakes have occurred on different faults.
The Gippsland region of Victoria has a higher-than-average level of seismic activity compared to Australia overall, so although it is unusual to have two earthquakes so close in space and time, it is not unusual to have earthquakes in the area. The last largest earthquake in the Pakenham area was in 2001, a magnitude 3.6 event with its epicentre about 6km away near Tooradin.
