Melbourne earthquake: Australians react to rare quake that rattled country

The Australian city of Melbourne experienced its strongest earthquake in more than a century on Wednesday – but many people appeared surprisingly unfazed.

One resident said he thought the 5.9 magnitude quake was his neighbours doing a “high intensity workout”.

Another leapt up to make sure his drinks were not spilled.

Geologists say the quake is the largest in south-east Australia since the 1800s.

Australia’s PM said there were no reports of serious injuries.
