  • Caldas da Rainha, Portugal - Senti este terremoto à coisa de 10/15 min. Estava a dormir quando de repente só sinto a cama a abanar imenso e um barulho enorme como se tivesse um comboio a passar por cima de mim. Logo a seguir a minha irmã que se preparava para as aulas entra em pânico pois diz que a mesa da sala de jantar onde ela tomava o pequeno almoço abanou de tal forma que os copos quase caíram. Foi um bocado assustador para mim pois nunca acordei com um terramoto.

    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.
