Earthquake @ Mansfield Victoria 21/09/2021

One image that came up today showed a building with many bricks upon the ground and a wall fallen down. The street other wise looked ok. I hope everyone is ok, a 5.7-5.9 Richter scale earthquake releases a massive amount of energy.

Geoscience Australia can confirm that a 5.9 magnitude earthquake was recorded at 09.15 AEST this morning.

The earthquake epicentre is near Mansfield, Victoria and was recorded at a depth of approximately 10kms.

Little Boy exploded on Hiroshima 6th August 1945 with 15 million kilograms equivalent energy for reference to Understanding the Richter Scale.

Looks like about 59 million kilograms of TNT equivalent :
