Update 11:19 UTC : We just got in a I Have Felt It report from Massa, the city closest to the epicenter. these people are reporting a VERY STRONG shaking MMI + “Very very strong and long lasting shaking!

Update 11:13 UTC : INGV parameters are telling us M5.1 at a depth of ONLY 5.1 km. ER confirms that we call this earthquake potentially damaging in an area of 15 km around the epicenter. James Daniell who know this beautiful area also indicates that this will be a potentially dangerous earthquake (minor damage).

Update 11:12 UTC : To our surprise, INGV, the local seismological agency has not reported this quake as yet. We truly need their data to be better informed about the possible human impact.

Update 10:58 UTC : The earthquake parameters have been decreased to M5.0. EMSC maintains a Magnitude of M5.3 at an extremely shallow depth of 2 km.

Update 10:53 UTC : Most of the I Have Felt It MMI values we are currently receiving are max. MMI V = moderate shaking. Which indicates and confirms as we said earlier that eventual damage may only occur near the epicenter.

Update 10:53 UTC : Most of the people in the shaken area are currently on the streets out of fear for aftershocks

Update 10:50 UTC : We call this earthquake ONLY dangerous in a radius of 25 km of the epicenter. The shaking was however felt in a wide radius and as far as Milan and Florence

Earthquake-report.com is calling this earthquake, although moderate in Magnitude, dangerous !
