This is the terrifying moment a strong earthquake shook a popular snow resort in Australia as skiers were riding down its slopes on Wednesday morning. CCTV footage captured the skiers sliding on Mount Buller in Victoria when the magnitude 6.0 tremor struck on September 22. Some people further up the slope appeared to stop for a few seconds to wait out the shaking. Relieved staff at the sloped said there was no avalanches and guests were fine and back skiing. The earthquake struck near Mansfield town near Melbourne, Victoria at a depth of 10 kilometres shortly before 9:15 a.m. local time, Geoscience Australia said. The agency also recorded a magnitude 4.0 aftershock. Tremors from the strong quake were felt up to 800 kilometres away in Adelaide, South Australia. No casualties or serious injuries have been recorded so far, but some properties were reported damaged, including a burger restaurant that collapsed in Melbourne's South Yarra suburbs. Prime Minister Scott Morrison said: "We have had no reports of serious injuries, or worse, and that is very good news and we hope that good news will continue." The quake is the strongest to rock Australia since the magnitude 6.6 tremor that hit near the resort town of Broome in the Kimberley region last 2019.

Legalising cannabis is about the only thing Germany's Free Democrats (FDP) could easily agree with the centre-left Social Democrats and Greens, the FDP leader has said, sounding cool on the possibility of forming a so-called "traffic light" coalition. Christian Lindner wants his business-friendly FDP to be kingmakers after Germany's national election on Sunday, at which the future course of Europe's largest economy is at stake after 16 years of steady, centre-right leadership under Angela Merkel. Opinion polls show a coalition of the centre-left Social Democrats (SPD) and Greens with the FDP, dubbed a traffic light alliance due to their party colours of red, green and yellow, is a real arithmetical possibility after the election.
