  • Kalamaria - I've lived in Thessaloniki for 5 years and this is about my 3rd quake I've noticed. Out of all of them, this was the loudest & most scary for me, I saw & felt the building sway & the rumble was loud, but I was surprised that nothing in my small unit on the 2nd floor rattled etc. I wasn't asleep which made it worse, but it has scared me a fair bit! (source EMSC)
  • Kalamaria - Sense that the move was up-down, like something really heavy falls behind you. (source EMSC)

  • Thessalonika - It was a strange one, as if a small bomb had exploded. Or as the warplane breaks the sound barrier... (source EMSC)
  • Evosmos - I was lying down in bed and felt sort of jerky sensation, not the rolling mention I have experienced in the past. The building and outside noise was quite noticeable. (source EMSC)

    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.
