Noord Nederland beeft enkele seconden
Vanavond heeft er zich in Groningen een kleine beving voorgdaan. Afhankelijk van de bron werd een Magnitude van 3.7 of 3.9 gemeten. De diepete van de beving (breekpunt) bevond zich op een diepte van 10 km.  Het epicenter (locatie) van de beving bevond zich in Andel, alhoewel er vaak met een vrij grote foutmarge dient rekening gehouden te worden.
De vraag werd gehoord of deze beving een relatie zou kunnen hebben met de gaswinning. Steeds mogelijk maar de gaswinning in Groningen is in geen geval te vergelijken met de aardgaswinning in de Verenigde Staten die al herhaaldelijk voor aardbevingen heeft gezorgd. De Technieken zijn totaal verschillend.
Update : Het Nederlandse KNMI publiceert nu M3.4, diepte 3 km, maar locatie epicentrum wijkt nogal af…
Er wordt gewag gemaakt van lichte schade in Baflo (scheuren in muren/vensterbanken, glas van ramen gebroken). Normaal treedt er onder een Magnitude van 4.5 nauwelijks schade op, doch de zachte bodem en het zeer ondiepe breekpunt kunnen verantwoordelijk zijn voor een sterker beven.

Northern Netherlands trembles a few seconds
Tonight there was a small quake in Groningen, Holland. Depending on the source, a Magnitude of 3.7 or 3.9 was measured. The hypocenter of the quake (breakpoint) was located at a depth of 10 km. The epicenter (location) of the quake was located in Andel, although an error margin should be taken into account.
The question was heard if this earthquake could have a relationship with gas exploration. Always possible, but the gas extraction in Groningen is in no way comparable to the natural gas production in the United States which has triggered some earthquakes. The techniques are completely different.
Update: The Dutch KNMI now publishes M3.4, depth 3 km, epicenter location, but is quite different …
Some slight damage is reported in Baflo (cracks in walls / window sills, glass from broken windows). Damage normally occurs seldom under a Magnitude of 4.5, but the soft soil and very shallow hypocenter  may be responsible for a stronger quake.

    MMI II (Very weak shaking) ?
    People :
    Felt by persons at rest, on upper floors or favorably placed.
    MMI III (Weak shaking) ?
    People :
    Felt indoors; hanging objects may swing, vibration similar to passing of light trucks, duration may be estimated, may not be recognized as an earthquake.
    MMI IV (Light shaking) ?
    People :
    Generally noticed indoors but not outside. Light sleepers may be awakened. Vibration may be likened to the passing of heavy traffic, or to the jolt of a heavy object falling or striking the building.
    Fittings :
    Doors and windows rattle. Glassware and crockery rattle. Liquids in open vessels may be slightly disturbed. Standing motorcars may rock.
    Structures :
    Walls and frames of buildings, and partitions and suspended ceilings in commercial buildings, may be heard to creak.
    MMI V (Moderate shaking) ?
    People :
    Generally felt outside, and by almost everyone indoors. Most sleepers awakened. A few people alarmed.
    Fittings :
    Small unstable objects are displaced or upset. Some glassware and crockery may be broken. Hanging pictures knock against the wall. Open doors may swing. Cupboard doors secured by magnetic catches may open. Pendulum clocks stop, start, or change rate.
    Structures :
    Some large display windows cracked. A few earthenware toilet fixtures cracked.
    MMI VI (Strong shaking) ?
    People Felt by all. People and animals alarmed. Many run outside. Difficulty experienced in walking steadily.
    Fittings :
    Objects fall from shelves. Pictures fall from walls. Some furniture moved on smooth floors, some unsecured free-standing fireplaces moved. Glassware and crockery broken. Very unstable furniture overturned. Small church and school bells ring. Appliances move on bench or table tops. Filing cabinets or "easy glide" drawers may open (or shut).
    Structures :
    Slight damage to buildings with low standard. Some stucco or cement plaster falls. Large display windows broken. Damage to a few weak domestic chimneys, some may fall.
    Environment :
    Trees and bushes shake, or are heard to rustle. Loose material may be dislodged from sloping ground, e.g. existing slides, talus slopes, shingle slides.
    MMI VII (Very strong shaking) ?
    People
    General alarm. Difficulty experienced in standing. Noticed by motorcar drivers who may stop.
    Fittings :
    Large bells ring. Furniture moves on smooth floors, may move on carpeted floors. Substantial damage to fragile contents of buildings.
    Structures :
    Unreinforced stone and brick walls cracked. Low standard buildings cracked with some minor masonry falls. A few instances of damage to buildings of ordinary workmanship. Unbraced parapets, unbraced brick gables, and architectural ornaments fall. Roofing tiles, especially ridge tiles may be dislodged. Many unreinforced domestic chimneys damaged, often falling from roof-line. Water tanks Type I burst. A few instances of damage to brick veneers and plaster or cement-based linings. Unrestrained water cylinders (hot-water cylinders) may move and leak. Some common windows cracked. Suspended ceilings damaged.
    Environment :
    Water made turbid by stirred up mud. Small slides such as falls of sand and gravel banks, and small rock-falls from steep slopes and cuttings. Instances of settlement of unconsolidated or wet, or weak soils. Some fine cracks appear in sloping ground. A few instances of liquefaction (i.e. small water and sand ejections).
    MMI VIII (Severe shaking) ?
    People Alarm may approach panic. Steering of motorcars greatly affected. Structures : Low standard buildings heavily damaged, some collapse. ordinary workmanship buildings damaged, some with partial collapse. Reinforced masonry or concrete buildings damaged in some cases. A few instances of damage to buildings and bridges designed and built to resist earthquakes. Monuments and pre-1976 elevated tanks and factory stacks twisted or brought down. 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. 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. Environment : Cracking of ground conspicuous. Landsliding general on steep slopes. Liquefaction effects intensified and more widespread, with large lateral spreading and flow sliding adjacent to streams, canals, lakes, etc.
