Would all the Melbournians have to evacuate in case such an event stated in the article happens?

I don't know
depends on how big it would be, there's not many places to quickly get to either

Apparently in the gippsland area, since 2009 there have been around 200 minor earthquakes. Who knew?!

I didn't know there were volcanoes there

So the last one erupted 5000 years ago but they usually erupt every 2000 years? Hmmm, kinda overdue

lol! I think you're right. Plus the trendy thing in journalism these days is biblical-like predictions of doom.

now every minute tremor will be reported, until the next "thing" happens.

ha ha! Winter arrived in Perth a few weeks ago. Perth's known for being windy and when it rains here it buckets down but these days that's being reported as if it were Armageddon. Since when is the weather everywhere supposed to be mild and boring?

I was talking to a colleague and he told me that QLD gets earthquakes. I missed the 5 point something a couple of weeks ago. ESSCC Seismological Observatory

The headline magnitude is "pretty much" meaningless (to anyone but the mainstream media) , its how shallow and close to a population centre that matters.

Think two hand grenades

1x explodes 500 meters away
1x explodes with you holding it.

Both have the same energy, but its not hard to see which one is far more problematic.
