    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.

    1. Deborah Egger says:

      We felt the earthquake and thought at first it was either an explosion in the neighborhood or an earthquake. Heard a loud noise, house shook, felt the vibration in bed and asked ourselves: What was that?!? Glad to know no one was hurt and there is no real damage. Stäfa, Switzerland
