|The Modified Mercalli, or Mike-Mike scale is used by Santa Clara County ARES/RACES to standardize and make more efficient the reporting of earthquake damage. Instead of reporting damage by using general descriptions like "major" or "minor" or "heavy", a Mike-Mike value is reported. This value is quick and simple to communicate over the air and equates to a standard level of damage as defined in the scale below.|
|Mike-Mike Value||Short Description|
|Mike-Mike-1||Not felt at all|
|Mike-Mike-3||Know it was an earthquake somewhere|
|Mike-Mike-4||Windows, dishes rattle|
|Mike-Mike-5||Pictures move, doors swing, small items on floor|
|Mike-Mike-6||Glassware broken, books off shelf, floor lamps topple|
|Mike-Mike-7||Furniture broken, cannot stand, chimneys fall|
Response Format: "<your-call-sign>, <your-city>, <MM-number>, <your-call-sign>"
