Muswellbrook / MMI VI (Strong shaking)
(6.3 km ENE from epicenter) / MMI IV (Light shaking): Short sharp shock (via app)
Muswellbrook / MMI IV (Light shaking): Felt sideways whack, like a large heavy mattress being shot at side of house, didn't have the 'blast followed by falling rubble' sound that local mine blasting has. only heard sound of house being jarred sideways 'nails in timber creaking'. There was only one jolt/creak noise. Power went off for a few seconds. I am located at Anzac Parade, Muswellbrook.

Freeburgh (15.3 km WSW from epicenter) / MMI II (Very weak shaking): Woke to a deep rumbling coming from mountains to our east (towards epicentre). Went for approximately 15 seconds. Loud enough to concern us that something wasn't right! Second earthquake followed 30 minutes later, not quite as loud or long.
Tawonga South / MMI IV (Light shaking): Woken around 3am. What seemed like a door slammed and a shaking.
mount beauty / not felt: loud bang
