  • Bardo Limo - Heard noise like a rumble of thunder then dining chair seemed to sway from side to side for a couple of seconds. A definite movement but no damage.
  • Tignale - Rammelende ramen, trillen van voorwerpen
  • EMSC Northern Italy Aug 28 17:49 4.0 3 MAP I Felt It INFO
  • Malcesine - Dauer circa 3 Sekunden (via emsc)
  • Desenzano del Garda - Did not feel like a 'rolling' earthquake, but a 2 second strong vibration. (via emsc)
  • Bardolino - Light shaking, felt it about 3 seconds inside a building at the first floor.
  • Riva del Garda - Felt just light shaking, the glasses in the cupboard rattled. No damage.
  • Torri del Benaco - Hat ca. 1sek gewackelt, schwaches nachbeben win past minuten spätwr
  • Toscolano moderno - No property damage that I can see. Wildlife surrounding us was very scared. It felt like it was right under us both, almost like an explosion underground, whole building shook for a few seconds quite violently. Heard aftershock around 10 mins later but it was much weaker, didn't really feel the second tremor! This is our first trip to Italy so was a very exciting and slightly terrifying experience!
  • torri del benaco - Whe where eating at the moment and everybody went outside it was a scary moment
  • Toscolano-Maderno - Interesant experience!
  • limone sur garda - Das Hotel hat für ca. 2 Sekunden recht spürbar gewackelt. Keine weiteren Erdstöße.
  • Lake Garda - Quite noticeable, brief noisy shaking
  • San Zeno di Montagna - We were sitting outside on the balcony of the family villa in San Zeno to gavé donner. There was a strange vibration like someone was dragging a giant galvanised bucket along a concrete pathway. It lasted for about 10 seconds.
  • Torri del benaco - Es hat mindestens 5 Sekunden stark vibriert, wie wenn eine Fähre gegen das Hotel gefahren wäre. Das Wackeln des Hauses war stark zu spüren. Wir haben gleich das Haus verlassen. Andere Gäste, die sich vor dem Hotel aufhielten, sagten uns, dass sich das Haus sichtbar bewegte.
  • Moniga del Garda - Light to moderate shaking. Sitting on terrace (01st floor) of Villa, quite strong shaking of building, but no damage. Indoors TV shaking. Knew it was a quake as I was in San Fran in Oct 1989...
  • Manerba - Was indoors in second floor apartment. There was a grating noise and a noticeable shaking followed by a second noise and shake a split second later It felt like some heavy machinery had rammed into the building. It didn't occur to me that it was an earthquake because I never associated this part of Italy with earthquakes.
  • bardolino - shaking and remote grumbling for about 5 secs, clear it was an earthquake, no damage done, went immediately over to lake and saw 4-5 strong waves rolling towards rhe shore, not sure though if they were quake-related
  • Gar da - Wir saßen bei einem Drink in der Altstadt, als plötzlich ein Donner grollte. Es schien, als würde sich der Boden heben. Dann wurden wir auf unseren Stühlen hin und her gerüttelt. Alles klirrte und die Menschen liefen aus den Häusern.

  • Polla (SA) - It lasted only 2 to 3 seconds, but was a sudden jolt that woke my husband and startled me. We are in an "earthquake-proof" home and have never before felt earthquakes others here told us about. Thus, we know it was more than just a category one or two.

    Unreinforced stone and brick walls cracked. Low standard buildings cracked with some minor masonry falls. A few instances of damage to buildings of ordinary workmanship. Unbraced parapets, unbraced brick gables, and architectural ornaments fall. Roofing tiles, especially ridge tiles may be dislodged. Many unreinforced domestic chimneys damaged, often falling from roof-line. Water tanks Type I burst. A few instances of damage to brick veneers and plaster or cement-based linings. Unrestrained water cylinders (hot-water cylinders) may move and leak. Some common windows cracked. Suspended ceilings damaged.
    Environment :
    Water made turbid by stirred up mud. Small slides such as falls of sand and gravel banks, and small rock-falls from steep slopes and cuttings. Instances of settlement of unconsolidated or wet, or weak soils. Some fine cracks appear in sloping ground. A few instances of liquefaction (i.e. small water and sand ejections).
    MMI VIII (Severe shaking) ?
    People Alarm may approach panic. Steering of motorcars greatly affected. Structures : Low standard buildings heavily damaged, some collapse. ordinary workmanship buildings damaged, some with partial collapse. Reinforced masonry or concrete buildings damaged in some cases. A few instances of damage to buildings and bridges designed and built to resist earthquakes. Monuments and pre-1976 elevated tanks and factory stacks twisted or brought down. Some pre-1965 infill masonry panels damaged. A few post-1980 brick veneers damaged. Decayed timber piles of houses damaged. Houses not secured to foundations may move. Most unreinforced domestic chimneys damaged, some below roof-line, many brought down. Environment : Cracks appear on steep slopes and in wet ground. Small to moderate slides in roadside cuttings and unsupported excavations. Small water and sand ejections and localized lateral spreading adjacent to streams, canals, lakes, etc.
    MMI IX (Violent shaking) ?
    Structures Many low standard buildings destroyed. Ordinary workmanship buildings heavily damaged, some collapse. Reinforced masonry or concrete buildings damaged, some with partial collapse. Buildings and bridges designed and built to resist earthquakes damaged in some cases, some with flexible frames seriously damaged. Damage or permanent distortion to some buildings and bridges, designed and built to normal use standards. Houses not secured to foundations shifted off. Brick veneers fall and expose frames. Environment : Cracking of ground conspicuous. Landsliding general on steep slopes. Liquefaction effects intensified and more widespread, with large lateral spreading and flow sliding adjacent to streams, canals, lakes, etc.
