5 Jul 11 - "Scientists are now warning that volcanoes in Western Victoria and South Australia are due to erupt," says this article from Melbourne's Channel 7 News.

University of Melbourne scientists have found that the volcanoes usually erupt every 2000 years, with the last eruption at Mt Gambier, South Australia, 5000 years ago.

The prediction comes just hours after two earthquakes - one a 4.4 magnitude - hit the state this morning.

The tremors shook Melbourne office buildings, Melbourne Airport, and many homes across the state.

A second, smaller quake, which struck
Korumburra, was also felt in Melbourne.

People should prepare for lots of aftershocks in the coming hours, said senior seismologist Clive Collins. "After the last significant quake in Victoria there were more than 200 aftershocks,"

"There's potential for larger events in this sequence," said Seismologist Adam Pascale.

Meanwhile, the Alpines were experiencing blizzard conditions.
