10 intensity levelsSeismic intensity refers to the strength of a tremor and is a seismic scale used throughout Japan. It is measured on an intensity scale ranked from 0 to 7. Since the same seismic intensity can cause a wide range of damage, seismic intensity 5 and seismic intensity 6 are further divided into weak 5, strong 5, weak 6, and strong 6. There are 10 levels in total.
