ABC News Breakfast Experiences Literal On-Air Wobble As Earthquake Hits Victoria

A magnitude six earthquake hit Melbourne/Naarm and areas of regional Victoria today, causing damage to some buildings.

The earthquake hit at approximately 9.15am AEST – while the ABC News Breakfast team were still at their desks.

Presenters Michael Rowland and Tony Armstrong were sat in the News Breakfast set discussing the program after broadcast had ended when the earthquake occurred.

It can be seen visibly rocking the set in a video posted by the News Breakfast Twitter account.

Someone off screen can be heard saying, “there’s an earthquake, holy shit,” while another says, “I’ve never had an earthquake in here before!”.

Then, a voice can be heard saying, “f*cking scary.”

Rowland asked whether it was an earthquake or a structural issue. He then said, “let’s go, that was a big one.”

Co-host Tony Armstrong then commented, “that’s still tremoring.”

Tremors from the earthquake were felt throughout the country, including in Adelaide, Sydney and Canberra.

According to the 9News website, the Channel Nine headquarters in Melbourne/Naarm’s Docklands had to be evacuated as a safety precaution.
