An earthquake from MAGNITUDE 6, which took place with an epicenter near Mansfield in Victoria around 9.15am has been felt as far as to Canberra.

At 10 a.m. this morning (September 22), less than an hour after the quake, nearly 650 people from across the ACT submitted a filter report.

Canberrans largely felt the quake in the inner north, inner south and city center, however, reports spread across most of the ACT, with nearly 20 reports also in the Queanbeyan area.

The ACT Emergency Services Agency (ESA) said tremors could also be felt to Sydney.

ACTESA Triple Zero (000) has also received a number of calls from concerned members of Canberra who have felt the aftermath.

At this stage, there are no reports of injuries within ACT.

However, ACT ESA says it is prepared to respond to any incident that occurs within the area.
