Paper Number: ISRM-IS-2000-266
... ABSTRACT: On 12 April 1998, the strongest earthquake in the last century with an epicentre in Slovenia shook low a populated area in the Alps (The upper Soca Territory) of NW Slovenia. The earthquake of a local magnitude of 5,6 (MwA=6,0) caused no loss of life, although a lot of damage...
