Technical problems with earthquake listings
We have currently problems with the earthquake data link (other server). We hope that the link will be reactivated soon. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
Update 13:17 UTC : We are using a shared server to host our “I Felt It”, “Earthquakes” and Email alerts databases.  This server is down for about 6 hours right now. When asked for an explanation, support said “this will take as long as it needs to run some file checking”. A shared server is used by a lot of websites. We are, just like you we guess, irritated about what happens, but as a non-profit organization we cannot pay for redundant strong hosting servers.
Update 15:52 UTC : Happy to be back :)

2 serious aftershocks in Guerrero / Oaxaca, Mexico
As predicted several weeks ago, the M7.6 earthquake in Guerrero Mexico would surely lead to a lot of aftershocks including some stronger ones which will be close or greater than M6.0. What happened today (M5.4 at 10:10 UTC and M5.3 at 13:06 UTC) could be expected and will normally not cause any additional damage. Let us hope that the aftershocks will gradually winding down in strength and number. Read also our in-depth report on the M7.4 mainshock

M 5.9      2012/04/13 10:10     Depth 20.0 km      NEAR THE EAST COAST OF HONSHU, JAPAN
07:10:01 PM at epicenter – Epicenter location see below in list
Similar earthquake than yesterday in the greater Fukushima area. Although the Magnitude and depth are pointing to a very powerful earthquake, the intensity was at the lower side with a max. JMA 4 (on a scale from 0 to 7). Earthquake-Report.com considers a 5+ as being potentially dangerous for infrastructure and injuries. The shaking was modest because the epicenter was out of the coast.
39 km (24 miles) E of Iwaki, Honshu, Japan

M 4.7      2012/04/13 06:21      Depth 26.8 km      SICILY, ITALY
08:21:36 AM at epicenter –  - Epicenter location see below in list
Moderate earthquake very close to Palermo, Sicily. The depth of the hypocenter will weaken the shaking a little bit and no damage has to be expected in or near Palermo.
12 km (8 miles) NNW (337°) from Palermo, Sicily, Italy

  • Palermo, Italy - It was strong enough that it woke me from sleeping. The host of my hostel did not feel it.
  • Palermo's university - Moderate shaking indicated
  • Palermo - è sempre una brutta esperienza essere svegliati da un terremoto (source EMSC)
  • Trapani - svegliato dal terremoto.... e che cavolo :-) (source EMSC)
  • Trapani - Dormivo. Mi sono svegliata per il rumore dei ninnoli del lampadario che sbattevano tra loro e perché tremav il letto sotto di me (source EMSC)
  • Palermo - Ero all’ultimo piano della facoltà di architettura…..e la sedia ballava parecchio…!!
  • Palermo - En attente à l'aéroport de Palerme pour un retour en avion vers la France, lorsque qu'un tremblement a été perçu par l'ensemble des personnes présentes. On aurai crus qu'un avion s'était écrasé sur la piste.

    seismograph - recordingUseful information to read this daily earthquake list
    This earthquake list covers important earthquakes in the world.
    If a more detailed page is present, the earthquake line will be linked to the detailed page.
    For your comfort, we will provide in most cases a Google Satellite Map to give you an idea where the earthquake struck, which terrain it happened and if villages or cities are located in the immediate vicinity. The multi-source approach has been setup to compare values as seismology is not an exact science and needs a lot of calculations. The reference for the time zone is UTC (Coordinated Universal Time, also called GMT). Color explanation if we add some details above the list :
    green color = NOT dangerous for damage or injuries
    orange color = MODERATE risk for damage or injuries
    red color = CONSIDERABLE risk for damage or injuries

    QuakeSOS+ and QuakeSOS free are iPhone applications developed by Armand Vervaeck, the founder of Earthquake Report. The Application simplifies immediate group communication to friends and family members (with your exact GPS location) and is feeding the users with Earthquake Report news. The 0.99 US$ QuakeSOS+ version will support the activities of SOS Earthquakes.

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.
