Seismology Research Centre’s Wayne Peck says the area where Victoria’s earthquake occurred is “reasonably active” but “not very active” on a world scale.

On Wednesday, Victoria experienced an earthquake of 5.9 magnitude and six tremors following the event.

“That’s actually the largest event we’ve ever recorded in Victoria,” Mr Peck told Sky News host Chris Smith.

“We will certainly have aftershocks for this event for weeks to months but most of those, after the first week or so, most of those events will be too small for humans to feel.

“The most likely outcome is that the aftershocks will continue to ramp down to a point where most people won’t be able to feel them, even in the epicentral area.”
