This earthquake was recorded in Albania on 01-19-1833, where it released a sizeable amount of seismic energy and reached a magnitude of 6.4 on the richter scale. 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 10. An earthquake of this magnitude would likely be causing slight damage in specially designed structures; considerable damage in ordinary substantial buildings with partial collapse. Damage would be great in poorly built structures. People could expect the dall of chimneys, factory stacks, columns, monuments, walls.
