Seismological Society of America (SSA)Catalog of Earthquake-Related Sounds
This collection of 21 earthquake-related sounds, prepared by Karl V. Steinbrugge, was originally published in BSSA vol. 64, no. 5 in 1974 and updated with eight additional sounds in 1985. You can listen to individual sounds below by clicking the play button in the audio player next to the recording number, or you can download a Zip file containing MP3 audio files of all the sounds. Most of recorded on the inside of different buildings but some are from outside. (Compiled by Karl V. Steinbrugge)

USGSShaking in the Atwood Building in Anchorage, Alaska
This video presents a visualization of how the Atwood Building in Anchorage, Alaska, shook during the M7.1 January 24, 2016, Iniskin, Alaska, earthquake. The building was instrumented by U.S. Geological Survey to obtain data to study its behavior and performance during strong shaking. Such data is useful to make decisions for improving the building's performance.
