Ouangani (Mayotte) (27 km W from epicenter)(no details): Séisme ressenti commune de Ouangani Mayotte magnitude estimée entre 4,8 et 5,2 plus longue que d'habitude.Le 4,7 me semble bien faible pa rapport au ressenti !!!! (via EMSC)
Mamoudzou (Mayotte) (18 km NW from epicenter)(no details): En pleine nuit, c est toujours très impressionnant. (via EMSC)
Sada (Mayotte) (30 km W from epicenter)(no details): pas très fort , je pense la magnitude surévaluée , les séismes sont très modestes ces derniers temps je ne comprends pas les réactions disproportionnées au regard de l'intensité ressentie du moins à Sada. Beaucoup moins fort qu'en mai. a moins que quelque chose atténue les secousses entre le foyer et l'ouest, vu qu'il semble à l'est des gens les ressentent violemment qd ici c'est à peine si on les perçoit. Sinon où en sont les études et les bases installées? si on savait que ces séismes sont suivis par plusieurs stations qui permettent de localiser précisément les foyers et déterminer leur magnitude et mécanismes je pense qu'on serait bien plus sereins. Il y a un fort déficit en études et en communication qui sont très nuisibles à la population !!! il faut y remédier : plus de stations à Mayotte et Madagascar proche!!! (via EMSC)
