Abstract

An earthquake of magnitude Mb 4. 9 caused damage of intensity IV to VIII in Liege, Belgium on 8 November 1983. Damage was sustained by older, low quality domestic buildings whilst modern engineered structures and facilities were unaffected. The effects of topography, near-surface geology and mining operations were evident in the distribution of damage in the town. A short temporary microseismic array study detected seven probable aftershocks, seven mine-related events and seven near events in the six days following the main shock.
