  • Sonoma CA - I was upstairs - didn't really feel any movement, but there was a sharp, loud rattling and rumbling noise.
  • Middletown, CA - I was awakened from a sound sleep. It felt as if somebody was holding the house and gave it a good shake. Earthquakes in my location are pretty common but this one seemed to last longer than most earthquakes at the Geysers.
  • Sonoma - I was wake from a deep sleep and every thing was rattling and shaking. My bed was shaking and the windows etc. I went ack to sleep when it was over and when I woke up again the items on the dresser had shifted and were hanging over the edge.
  • 94508 - Awaken out of a sound sleep by my cockatiel going crazy-flapping around her cage and breaking her wing feathers. Vertical blind slight swinging otherwise no other movement.
  • Middletown CA - We were both awakened by a heavy jolt followed by shaking and rattling. I see no reference to it from the other Middletown person who commented about this earthquake, but, for my part, I felt a less-jolting earthquake a some juncture earlier in the night. Unfortunately, I cannot report what time this earlier quake occurred. I turned over and went back to sleep and did not look at the clock. There is no question about it, however. There were two quakes instead of one.
  • 95425 - Live in a 2 story house & my room is downstairs so i was awakened by a sharp jolt of the house!
  • Sonoma - I live on the second floor, and the shaking was enough to wake me from a sound sleep. No one else in the house felt it. It didn't last more than a few seconds.

    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.

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.
