    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.

    1. Bob Faske says:

      not a great way to wake up...bed shaking and floor rolling for 10-15 seconds exited on stairway from 4th floor of 8 in south end of Crucita....only one neighbor exited the building at the same time.
      No apparent damage (3 sets of closed bi-fold doors opened, but no obvious interior or exterior cracks in masonry observed) except to my sense of security

    2. Esmail Ghohestany says:

      I was going to bed that I felt I couldn't control my balance and I saw the apartment was shaking to some extent strong and I wanted to wake up my wife and my son and I had become fearful and afraid of a strong earthquake the same as iran-iroq border earthquake on yesterday.

      experiencing issues with your site. It appears as if some of the written texzt on your content are running off the screen. Can someone
      else please ptovide feedback and lett me knjow if thhis is happening to them as well?
      This may be a issue with my web browser because I've had this
      happen before. Cheers

        Hi, Armand here. Main problem is that i can't see the errors myself. Smartphone, desktops in alle browsers are just fine here. We will order a total review of the functionalities and visibility in the site very soon and hope that that way all issues will be solved. My gratitude for telling me this.

    4. Donna D. says:

      11/1/16 @ 11:28 p.m. Sitting at computer and the screen started shaking. It felt like someone heavily stomping in the next room. I noticed the time and became alert. The strong vibrations went on for several seconds. I immediately went to FB- social media, and numerous people were also reporting feeling this in the Tulsa area.
