AN EARTHQUAKE cut the power supply to more than 1,000 homes in Sydney, officials said yesterday.

The earthquake, described as "moderate" and measuring 4.7 on the Richter scale, hit Australia's largest city just before 1pm on Wednesday and lasted several seconds. Centred in Wilton, about 45 miles south of Sydney, the quake jolted office blocks but there were no reports of major damage or injury.
