  • Porto - 06:10 Vibração semelhante à passagem de camiões.
  • Oliveira de Azeméis - Acordamos com uma uma única pancada na casa.
  • Ovar - Estava sentada a acabar o meu pequeno almoço quando ouvi um som à distância como o de um trovão. Logo em seguida ouve o tremor (fraco) da casa. Foi tudo muito rápido, como uma onda. Fiquei com medo porque estava sozinha e coloquei a chave na fechadura para sair para a rua caso isso se repetisse. Mas não aconteceu.
  • Fajões - Short duration (maybe 1 second). Shaking and noise.
  • Oliveira de Azeméis - Acordamos com um estrondo e a tremer na cama como se fossemos gelatina.

    Slight damage to buildings with low standard. Some stucco or cement plaster falls. Large display windows broken. Damage to a few weak domestic chimneys, some may fall.
    Environment :
    Trees and bushes shake, or are heard to rustle. Loose material may be dislodged from sloping ground, e.g. existing slides, talus slopes, shingle slides.
    MMI VII (Very strong shaking) ?
    People
    General alarm. Difficulty experienced in standing. Noticed by motorcar drivers who may stop.
    Fittings :
    Large bells ring. Furniture moves on smooth floors, may move on carpeted floors. Substantial damage to fragile contents of buildings.
    Structures :
    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.

    1. Carlos A. Graulau says:

      felt it in my room.lasted for about 30 secs with a PW(primary wave and a stronger SW(secondary wave). No damage in my area

    2. Jeanne C. says:

      I felt it in Powhatan Va. it felt like a wave rolled under me and there was a loud boom like thunder.

    3. Tito Stevens says:

      It would really be instructive if you could post a daily map of the world showing the places where earthquakes 5.0 on the Richter Scale and above were located and the time they were felt so we could see if there is some kind of trend developing in the tectonic plates.

      • Armand Vervaeck says:

        Will put your request in our ToDo list – some new enhancements will be applied the coming weeks

    4. David Brown says:

      We were falling asleep when the house began shaking.
