A 5.9 magnitude earthquake has rattled southeast Australia, damaging buildings in the city of Melbourne, the BBC has reported.

The earthquake happened about 09:15 local time on Wednesday. Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said “we have had no reports of serious injuries and that is very good news”.

The earthquake was also felt in neighbouring South Australia and New South Wales. It was followed by two aftershocks of 4.0 and 3.1 magnitude.

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