A seemingly non-descript earthquake has turned out to be damaging in Indonesia. The M5.2 shown below in Manggarai slightly damaged over 300 houses.

Strong but deep earthquake in Guatemala-El Salvador border.
A 5.7M earthquake hit just on the border of Guatemala and El Salvador but the depth (160km) would had weakened the impact creating a max. felt intensity of III – IV on the Mercalli scale (weak to light shaking). This earthquake can not make a tsunami because it was not strong enough and also because it was triggered below land.  The earthquake should had being felt as a weak shaking on both Guatemala and El Salvador capitals.
Update : People have felt this earthquake far stronger than usually with other deep earthquakes. Every earthquake is being felt completely different and another proof that raw numbers give an indication but do not always tell the full story. This site has been started to fill part of this gap.

    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.

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.
