Very strong  dangerous aftershock in Guatemala
Click here for our extensive in-depth article on the Magnitude 7.4 mainshock
Based on the number of visitors in our site at the moment, we do think that a very strong earthquake did occur in Central America
We have preliminary date showing a Magnitude of M6.2 at a depth of 31 km.
We do fear again for unstable houses and constructions in the already earlier hit areas inside the country.
Please fill in a form to let us know what you have experienced
Update : We do not think that this earthquake will generate a tsunami as the epicenter area was in the same area than the mainshock a couple of days ago and as the mainshock did not generate big tides neither.
Update 22:34 UTC : as could be expected, the earthquake was felt all over the country as well as in neighbouring Mexico
- Max. expected shaking by USGS : MMI VI Max. reported shaking at USGS : MMI IV (light shaking)
- These kind of aftershocks will probably continue for quite some time; will gradually become weaker with occasionally now and then a bigger bump like the one we just experienced.
Update 22:54 UTC : at least 15 million people felt the earthquake in Mexico, Nicaragua and Guatemala
- CONRED the Guatemalan relief and rescue service just held a press conference in their offices when the earthquake struck. The premises were immediately evacuated
Update 22:59 UTC : This aftershock was not so harmless as we thought.
- In zone 5 of San Marcos a wall collapsed and a woman was slightly injured.
- 3 people were found under debris, they have been transported to the hospital.
- A bus crashed (turned around) and 10 people were slightly injured, they are in a hospital now.
Update 23:07 UTC : USGS has revised the earthquake data and reports now a Magnitude of 6.5 at a depth of 30 km.  On the basis of these new numbers we can conclude that 183000 people have experienced a strong shaking and 1.42 million a moderate MMI V shaking
Update 23:13 UTC : – Power went down in some of the earlier hit areas
- The President of Guatemala has suspended his upcoming trip to Spain
ER thinks that the Guatemalan people, Conred, politicians and certainly also the President did a great job coping with this disaster. The president was at the scene coordinating actions from the very beginning. What a difference with the earthquake in Myanmar.
Update 23:59 UTC:  - 20 houses are no longer habitable
- 2 families have been evacuated
- a minor was injured by this aftershock
- Based on the new data (M6.5 at 30 km)  USGS has recalculated the intensities - 5000 people will have felt a very strong MMI VII shaking - 434000 people a  strong MMIVI shaking and  more than 2 million a moderate shaking”

Extremely dangerous earthquake in Myanmar
Due to the importance of this earthquake, we have started an in-depth article which we will pdate when we get more details.

    Useful 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. 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.
