Label info : M = magnitude, D = depth (km), Time = UTC - Click here for the Time Zone world map.

INFO link behind a specific earthquake row is showing additional maps and information + previous earthquakes
The multi-source approach makes it possible to compare preliminary Magnitude and Depth values as seismology is not an exact science and needs a lot of (re-)calculations.

ER I Felt A (not Listed) Earthquake Dec 11 23:59 4.6 0 MAP I Felt It
  • São Paulo - It shook several times for a minute or two, then it stopped. No property damaged as far as I know.
  • New Castle, Colorado - One big shake. No damage. 3:02 a.m. Mountain Time December 11, 2018
  • Glenwood springs - Wet fast lasted 1-2 seconds followed by a weaker tremor approx 5 mins later
  • Glenwood Springs - One at 3:03 local time, 7 seconds? Another shorter stronger joltier one after 4 a.m. then a small rumble a couple minutes after that.
  • Glenwood Springs - Moderate shaking
  • Shipbottom NJ - The shaking lasted for about 10 seconds.
  • North Bethesda, Maryland - The vibrations were strong enough to wake me up from my sleep at 4:48 am EST. There were a series of vibrations, 5 or 6 one right after the other. They each lasted about two seconds.
  • Missouri Heights - I was laying in bed when I heard and felt the rumble and it woke up my wife. I looked outside and everything was calm
  • Glenwood Springs - Around 3:05 am about 5 to7 seconds light tremors, and then about 4:13 2 of the same kind about a minute apart
  • Glenwood Springs - At 3:03 our home in West Glenwood shook enough to awaken us with rattling window and moved the furniture a bit, for less than 10 seconds. We actually thought there was an explosion at first from the degree of motion. 4:13 was a stronger shake followed by a rumble that woke up the neighborhood.
  • Coon Rapids - Event @ 0630 CST UST Dec. 11th(Tues.), 2018. Lasted for 10-15 seconds, twice felt, 2-3 minutes between. Very light tremors to wake me up. Checked this web site and saw Glenwood Springs, Co. had a 3.6 M @ 5ft depth around 3am Tuesday Dec. 11th, 2018. Also checked the gas lines in the basement to be safe, all good, no damage. No visible shaking, just felt it.
  • Glenwood Springs - First around 3 a.m. woke my husband and me, but was mild enough we thought that it was perhaps a slide of snow coming off the roof. The second movement shortly after 4 a.m. was undeniable, much stronger, waking us to full alertness as our bed and house shook and rumbled. At first we wondered if a train (tracks at the end of our block) had wrecked, or if an explosion had occurred nearby. A third tremor occurred a few minutes later but was much weaker.
  • New Castle - First one at 3:03AM 5-10 seconds. Sitting on couch, felt building sway. Second one at 4:13AM again 5-10 seconds. Still on couch, felt building sway.
  • El Jebel - Shortly after 4 am heard disturbance outside house that was hard to figure out what it was. Lasted about 3 seconds.
  • Bartow - Light shaking
  • Buford Georgia - Woke up around 4AM, house shaking but not bad enough for things to fall from shelves etc. lasted about 15 seconds.
  • Atlanta - Around 415 am est
  • Between, Ga - 3-4 seconds about 30 min ago
  • Lawrenceville - I felt like a freight train was in my backyard! My dog (Rani) knew it was coming. So, she hugged me like a little baby! What an experience!
  • Villa Rica, Ga - I woke up to shaking at around 4:15 am it lasted around 5 seconds after i woke up then felt the same thing around 4:30 am
  • Pineville - Wish I had looked @ time but was between 10 & 11pm 12/11. Our dog started to growl and then our bed shook as did water bottles on our nightstands & our dog started barking. Lasted 10 seconds-ish. Our son came from his room (opposite side of house) to see happened. Hubs went outside thinking maybe someone had hit our house w/ a car but it wasn't the case. Hubs said the deer in the woods behind our house were running. Looked online but can't find anything for that time. It was 12/11 NOT 12/12.
