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.

    1. Nat Childs says:

      My regular quake reports have begun showing many previously reported quakes along with new ones -- each report is getting longer, the latest showing 83 quakes. Something's changed and before each report only contained new quakes.

      • Armand Vervaeck says:

        We apologize for all the misery as after a software update some things really went wrong. After stopping the mail service for a couple days (time to review what was wrong) the software people were convince to have found it, so yesterday we restarted the service, only to see that the issue was not yet solved. We stopped it gain.
        We are truly sorry for the inconvenience this caused. We continue to search for the problem.

    2. Jan Palmer says:

      I was sitting at my computer table and felt it shake and screen shook. Husband outside didn't feel so just found out size and such.

    3. 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

    4. 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.

    5. 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

    6. David Brown says:

      We were falling asleep when the house began shaking.
