Another earthquake in Bosnia and Herzegovina
Another strong aftershock has occurred in the Zenica area Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Please report (even in your local language) if you have experienced this earthquake by the form below
The earthquake was measured (preliminary) at M4.6 and at a depth of 2 km
This aftershock (earthquake), has the same Magnitude than the earthquake on July 27/28.
During that earthquake minor damage was reported. Depending on the time the shaking lasted today, we fear for the same scenario
Update : EMSC has lowered the Magnitude to M4.5

  • Jagersfontein - I was in bed reading, still wide awake. I heard a rumbling from far and as it came closer I could feel vibrations. I woke my husband and we both were wide-eyed, and for a good few seconds the house rumbled. It was rather frightening and very unexpected.

  • Sarajevo - Sitting in office, chair shook for a few seconds. Lasted about 3 seconds.
  • Sarajevo - Light shaking reported in Sarajevo
  • Sarajevo / Zenica, BiH - Dina from Zenica, BiH. 27/28 July earthquake was the worst since 1974...we all left the buildings. Today, 30 July - equally strong if not stronger quake again reported in Zenica - I felt it despite the fact that I'm in Sarajevo 74km away.
  • Bugojno - Was reading in bed.Lasted about 5s.It was not so strong as the quake 27/28 july
  • Zenica - This earthquake was shorter than one that happened int the Saturday (via emsc)
  • Zenica - 8th time in 3 days. My home has been damaged by the first one already. I am not scared but I would not find it crazy to see a bigger one coming. (via emsc)
  • Travnik - it lasted for approx 10 sec`s.
  • Zenica - Sta reci? Deveti potres od subote, strasno. Ovaj je vrlo kratak bio ali je bio poprilicno glasan, kao udar samo, sa vrlo malo ljuljanja. Sacekao sam u kuci i po smirivanju puni gas van kuce. Zenicani moji, nedaj te se... Valjda ce nas ovo popustiti... GILE
  • Zenica - Felt similar to the one on the 28th in strength but only lasted about half as long. Some things fell & some furniture shifted. Most everyone in the neighborhood got out of their houses for a short time.
  • Tuzla - Sitting on the chair. I thought my heart was bumping hard so I felt like my chair is shaking and my colleague felt this too.
  • Tuzla Bosnia and Herzegovina - Well i live around 70km from the epicenter and the shaking was from my experience very strong, but according to definition it was "light shaking". Really freaky feeling. My only concern is that this shallow epicenter may mean more earthquakes and even stronger ones. Hopefully there will be no more shaking. Cheers

    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.
