Felt by very few people; barely noticeable
Felt by a few people, especially on upper floors.
Noticeable indoors, especially on upper floors, but may not be recognized as an earthquake. Hanging objects swing.
Felt by many indoors, by few outdoors. May give the impression of a heavy truck passing by.
Felt by almost everyone, some people awakened. Small objects move. Trees and poles may shake.
Felt by everyone. Difficult to stand. Some heavy items of furniture move, plaster falls. Slight damage to chimneys possible.
Slight to moderate damage in well-built, ordinary structures. Considerable damage to poorly built structures. Some walls may fall.
Little damage in specially built structures. Considerable damage to ordinary buildings, severe damage to poorly built structures. Some walls collapse.
Considerable damage to specially built structures, buildings shifted off foundations. Noticeable cracks in ground. Wholesale destruction. Landslides.
Most masonry and frame structures and their foundations destroyed. Ground badly cracked. Landslides. Wholesale destruction.
Total damage. Few, if any, structures standing. Bridges destroyed. Wide cracks in ground. Waves seen on ground.
