Moderate earthquake in the Alexandria area, Egypt
The earthquake’s epicenter was in the greater Alexandria area, but luckily in the sea.
Magnitude was M4.8 which may have been dangerous if the epicenter was on land.
104 km NE Alexandria (pop 3,811,516 ; local time 23:17:35.2 2013-01-17)
78 km NE Edko (pop 105,599 ; local time 23:17:35.2 2013-01-17)
60 km N Rosetta (pop 64,481 ; local time 23:17:35.2 2013-01-17)
When you are one of the people who experienced this earthquake, please fill in the form behind “I Felt A (not Listed) Earthquake”. Thank you.
ER expects NO damage or injuries based on the data we have seen so far. Both agencies (EMSC and Geofon – USGS data are not known yet) are putting the epicenter about 50 km from Al Burj, in the Mediterranean Sea. This distance is weakening the shaking a lot. Aftershocks cannot be excluded but will normally be weaker than the mainshock.

Egypt January 17 earthquake


 

Moderate earthquake in Croatia
An earthquake with a preliminary Magnitude of approx. M4 was well felt in Croatia
Geofon reports a preliminary Magnitude of 4.2 at a depth of 10 km
When you are one of the people who experienced this earthquake, please fill in the form behind “I Felt A (not Listed) Earthquake”. Thank you.
Update 13:36 UTC : Depths are varying but the latest set is reporting a very shallow hypocenter. The person telling us below what he felt, said that the shaking lasted for only 3 seconds, which is a good sign and will decrease the chance on minor damage like cracks.
Update 14:04 UTC : Epicenter is located at 11 km from Sinj. Sinj is a small city with a population of 11,524 inhabitants. 3 km NW Potravlje (pop 827)
ER does not expect any damage from this earthquake. EMSC has in the meantime decreased the Magnitude from an initial M4.2 to M4.0. Depth has however also decreased to 2 km.
Update 18:31 UTC : Local reports are confirming : NO damage or injuries

    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.
