A resident of the cosmopolitan Adelaide Hills region has confirmed just how big the Melbourne earthquake was today.

Speaking to The Advocate via telephone a short time ago, a local drama queen has revealed that she felt the tectonic event in her comfortable little 6 bedroom Gumeracha home.

“It was quite something, I tell you,” explained Ura Idla this afternoon.

Her comments come as the city of Melbourne deals with the fallout from the 5.8 Magnitude earthquake that shook the city around 9 o’clock this morning.

The quake was reportedly felt as far as Albury-Wodonga, Canberra and Launceston.

However, not ones to miss an opportunity to try and copy Melbourne, it’s believed people who live in and around Adelaide are trying to get in on the action.

“I had to grab hold of the kitchen benchtop to keep my feet I think,” explained Ura, who has called upwards of 20 friends and family to check in on them, and talk about her experience.

While her neighbours aren’t so sure about the tremors that supposedly reached up into the Hills, Ura says it was definitely an earthquake.

“I’m not carrying on, and I’m not a drama queen if that’s what my kids have told you,” she said.

“I felt it god damn it.”

More to come.
