Experts warned that aftershocks could continue for months to come.

Emergency Management Commissioner Andrew Crisp said while there was still "significant aftershocks" that could impact Victoria, it was unlikely they would exceed the original magnitude.

There were several aftershocks shortly after the quake; these measured 3.5, 4.1, 2.5, 3.1, 2.4 and 2.9.
