A 5.8 magnitude earthquake has rattled southeast Australia, damaging buildings in the city of Melbourne.

澳大利亚东南部发生 5.8 级地震,墨尔本市的建筑物受损。

The earthquake happened about 09:15 local time (00:15 GMT) on Wednesday at Mansfield, not far from the Victorian state capital.

地震发生在曼斯菲尔德(当地时间周三 09:15|新西兰时间 12:15),距离维多利亚州首府不远。



Prime Minister Scott Morrison said “we have had no reports of serious injuries and that is very good news”.

总理斯科特·莫里森说:“我们没有收到严重受伤的报告,这是个好消息”。

The earthquake was also felt in neighbouring South Australia and New South Wales (NSW).

邻近的南澳大利亚州和新南威尔士州(NSW)也有震感。

It was followed by two aftershocks of 4.0 and 3.1 magnitude.

随后发生了两次 4.0 级和 3.1 级的余震。

While this is one of Australia’s largest earthquakes in recent years, it does not appear to have caused significant damage.

虽然这是澳大利亚近年来最大的地震之一,但它似乎并未造成重大破坏。

Large earthquakes are uncommon in Australia because the continent lies centrally on a tectonic plate.

大地震在澳大利亚并不常见,因为该大陆位于构造板块的中央。

This quake struck at a shallow depth of 10km (6.5 miles), according to Geosciences Australia. It was initially measured at 6.0 magnitude before being revised to 5.8.

据澳大利亚地球科学局称,这次地震发生在 10 公里(6.5 英里)的浅层深度。 它最初被测量为 6.0 等,然后被修正为 5.8。

The geoscience agency says Australia experiences a potentially damaging earthquake – defined as above 6.0 magnitude – about every 10 years.

地球科学机构表示,澳大利亚大约每 10 年就会经历一次具有潜在破坏性的地震——定义为 6.0 级以上。

Melbourne, the country’s second largest city, is home to about five million people.

墨尔本是该国第二大城市,拥有约 500 万人口。



The city is currently in lockdown due to a recent wave of coronavirus cases.

由于最近一波冠状病毒病例,该市目前处于封锁状态。

 

New Zealand’s GeoNet tweeted: “This is the largest on land earthquake in Australia since 1997. Earthquakes in Australia are reasonably uncommon, being far from the active tectonic zones of the Australian plate (like the one we live on!)”

新西兰的 GeoNet 发推文说:“这是澳大利亚自 1997 年以来最大的陆地地震。澳大利亚的地震相当罕见,因为远离澳大利亚板块的活动构造带(就像我们生活的那个!)”

A seismologist has told ABC radio in Melbourne this morning that it’s the biggest earthquake Victoria has experienced since European settlement and there will be aftershocks, potentially one magnitude lower.

一位地震学家今早在墨尔本告诉 ABC 电台,这是维多利亚州自欧洲定居者到来以来所经历的最大地震,并且会发生余震,可能会低一个震级。
