At 01:36 UTC (03:36 local time) on August 24th 2016, an earthquake Mw 6.0 struck an extensive sector of the central Apennines (coordinates: latitude 42.70° N, longitude 13.23° E, 8.0 km depth). The earthquake caused about 300 casualties and severe damage to the historical buildings and economic activity in an area located near the borders of the Umbria, Lazio, Abruzzo and Marche regions.
Just after the mainshock, SISMIKO, the coordinating body of the emergency seismic network at Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia (INGV) , was activated in order to install a temporary seismic network integrated with the existing permanent network in the epicentral area.
All data acquired from SISMIKO stations, are available at the European Integrated Data Archive (EIDA).
