This map illustrates the extent & variation of estimated ground shaking throughout the affected region. This color-coded intensity map is derived from empirical relations between peak ground motions & Modified Mercalli Intensity (MMI). The information is provided with the understanding that it is not guaranteed to be correct or complete, & conclusions drawn from such information are the sole responsibility of the user. Locations within the same intensity area will not necessarily experience the same level of damage since damage depends heavily on the type of structure, the nature of the construction, and the details of the ground motion at that site. For this reason more or less damage than described in the MMI scale may occur.
