INDONESIA:N.MOLUCCASISLANDS

This earthquake was recorded at a focal depth of 45km below the ground in Indonesia on 11-15-2014 T02:32:12, where it released a sizeable amount of seismic energy and reached a magnitude of 7.1 on the richter scale. Considering this quake occurred 45km under the surface, it is best classified as a deep geologic event. Earthquake intensity was also measured using the Mercalli intensity scale which quantifies the severity of shaking felt by the quake. On a scale of 1 (barely sensed) to 12 (completely devastating), this quake had an intensity of 5. An earthquake of this magnitude would likely be causing considerable damage to specially designed structures; well-designed frame structures thrown out of plumb. Damage would be great in substantial buildings, with partial collapse. Expect that buildings would be shifted off foundations.
