Update 01/11 – 00:08 UTC : No report yet from the very well organized Sichuan seismological agency. We expect the first reports on the situation in the early UTC hours.
Update : The seismic hazard map at right shows that the epicenter of the earthquake is located in an area with limited ground acceleration.
Update : We fear eventual damage and/or injuries in a radius of 20 km around the epicenter
Update : In 1976 a 6.4 magnitude earthquake at a distance of 104 km from the current epicenter killed 41 people
Update : Earthquake-Report.com calls this earthquake moderately dangerousbecause of the time of occurrence and the very vulnerable houses in the area.
