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.

    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.
