  • Benxi, China - We were sitting in our living room when the building began to shake and sway. It's not common for northerners to experience earthquakes
  • Shenyang, China - I was lying on the bed and it started to shake quite strongly. It only lasted about 15 seconds but it was scary!
  • Shenyang - Whole room started to shake.
  • Shenyang - Sitting on sofa at home, it started shaking then moved a little away from the wall.
  • Shenyang - The room inside my sixth floor apartment shook for a few seconds, long enough to run and grab my child and wonder what to do next!
  • Lioaning Shenyang, Yuhong district - i was sleep today because i sleep morning at 5:00 or 6:00 AM clock so i suddenly and shockdly awoke up at 12:18 PM china local time. so my bed was shaking very fast speed i am afraid but i am Muslim i do not afraidd much more then i open internet so on internet there is wrote earth daily report i saw too many site forr time etc on exact time i feel it but no effect on body or building etc just shaking.
  • Shenyang - I heard it coming before the shaking started! It sounded like a train or fighter jets, then a quick jolt and swaying of my building. The chandeliers were moving - but the whole action was rolling, not violent. I live on the 33rd floor, so the swaying of the building was intense and very scary! I am a Westerner (from USA, California) - I have been through many earthquakes, but nothing like this.
  • Home, Tiexi District - Just a really quick vibration; actually felt more like someone had driven a truck into the base of the highrise building I live in.

    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. 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
