Earthquake(s) in Bosnia and Herzegovina
Based on the number of visitors from Bosnia and Herzegovina, we think that an earthquake must have been felt
The earthquake has a preliminary Magnitude of M4.5 at a depth of 2 to 5 km
Please fill in a I Have Felt It form to tell us how you have experienced this earthquake
9 km NE Zenica (pop 164,423)
18 km NW Kakanj (pop 12,406)
Based on the preliminary data from the seismological agencies, we do not expect that this earthquake will generate serious damage or injuries.
Update : USGS reports a slightly higher Magnitude of M4.6 at a depth of 5.2 km
Update : 140,000 people are living within a 10 km radius of the epicenter
Update : The earthquake happened 5km from Zenica. The nearest populated places are: Carica (16km), Gusti Grab (15km), Sebinje (15km), Donji Banjevac (18km), Busovaca (14km), Kaonik (12km), Kruscica (18km), Kakanj (13km), Lasva (10km), Vitez (16km), Gacice (16km), Dubravica (13km), Gornji Cajdras (8km), Puhovac (9km), Brajkovici (16km), Brnjic (13km), Stranjani (11km), Guca Gora (19km), Gornja Gracanica (4km), Vranduk (9km), Pepelari (10km), Loznik (13km), Nemila (13km), Mitrovici (20km), Begov Han (15km), Serici (19km). The closest civilian airport is Sarajevo Butmir (53km).
Update : Cracks in walls cannot be excluded with this extremely shallow depth
Update 28/7 – 00:09 UTC : An aftershock measuring M4.2 has occurred 30 minutes after the mainshock
Final update 08:37 UTC : We have counted 3 major aftershocks so far (M4.2, M3.5 and M3.3). As we have stated shortly after the earthquake, the extremely shallow depth may have created cracks in walls. This became reality and some pictures and reports are showing also fallen stones from roofs. We have NO reports of injured people (partly because the earthquake happened at 01:12 local time, a time that most people are inside.
People in Zenica took to the streets immediately after the shaking and stayed there for some time because of fear for aftershocks. The earthquake was felt in most parts of Bosnia and Herzegovina and in cities like Sarajevo, Banja Luka, Goraždue, Bihac as well as in Serbia

    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.
