The record of this quake is likely a duplicate. In rare cases, originally reported quakes turn later out not to have been earthquakes.
This can happen if initial automatic calculations return an earthquake, but turn out to be wrong during subsequent (manual) revision.

Sacile / Weak shaking (MMI III) / horizontal (sideways) swinging / 20-30 s : I never feel something like this before. It was my first time.

82.4 km WNW of epicenter [Map] / not felt : it can't be true, a so strong quake so near it would have been impossible not to feel it... moreover on INGV website there's nothing about it | 2 users found this interesting. (reported through our app)
Sacile (193.1 km ENE of epicenter) [Map] / Moderate shaking (MMI V) : December 29th 2020. Contractions beneath the ground were felt. The house felt like it was rocking back and forth. All objects and bookcases were shaking. It began at around 12:30pm and lasted about 10 minutes.
161.2 km ENE of epicenter [Map] / Light shaking (MMI IV) : Quasi 1 minuto di scuotimento, non molto forte, ma ben percepito e da mettersi sotto le porte, non tanto per l'intensità quanto per la durata infinita. (reported through our app)
