    The INFO link behind earthquakes is showing additional information and a map with older seismicity in the epicenter area.
    The multi-source approach has been setup to compare values as seismology is not an exact science and needs a lot of (re-)calculations. The reference for the time zone is UTC (Coordinated Universal Time, also called GMT). Color explanation (titles above the list) : green color = Max. slight damage and NO injuries, orange color = MODERATE risk for damage and injuries, red color = HIGH risk for damage and injuries

    Felt by persons at rest, on upper floors or favorably placed.
    MMI III (Weak shaking) ?
