3.4 earthquake September 6 12:09 (GMT +10)

A magnitude 3.4 earthquake near Shepparton, Greater Shepparton, Victoria, Australia, was reported just 20 minutes ago by Geoscience Australia (GeoAu), considered the main national agency that monitors seismic activity in Australia . The earthquake occurred at a very shallow depth of 2.4 miles below the epicenter around noon on Tuesday, September 6, 2022, at 12:09 p.m. local time. The exact magnitude, epicenter and depth of the quake could be revised in the coming hours or minutes as seismologists review the data and refine their calculations, or as other agencies release their report.
A second report was later released by the RaspberryShake Citizen Seismograph Network, which also listed it as a magnitude 3.4 earthquake. A third agency, the Euro-Mediterranean Seismological Center (EMSC), reported the same 3.4 magnitude quake.
Based on preliminary seismic data, the quake should not have caused significant damage, but was likely felt by many people as a slight vibration in the epicenter area.
Weak tremors could have been felt at Carag Carag (pop. 73) located 2 miles from the epicenter, and Rushworth (pop. 1,300) 9 miles away.
Other towns near the epicenter where the quake could have been felt as a very weak tremor include Kyabram (pop. 7,100) located 13 miles from the epicenter, Rochester (pop. 3,000) 16 miles away, Tatura (pop. 4,500) 16 miles away, Mooroopna (pop. 7,700) 23 miles away and Shepparton (pop. 31,100) 26 miles away. In Bendigo (pop. 100,600, 42 miles), the earthquake was probably not felt.

Data for the same earthquake reported by different agencies

Info: The more agencies report the same earthquake and publish similar data, the more confidence you can have in the data. It normally takes up to a few hours for the seismic parameters to be calculated with near optimum accuracy.
