Norica acceleration record

Accelerations at Norcia from M=6.2 Rieti earthquake

Here is the shaking record from Norcia, 14 km (9 mi) form the epicenter, in the north-south direction, which was highest of the three components (N, W, Up). The strong shaking lasted 3-4 seconds and peaked at a relatively modest 0.375 g. Well built wood frame homes should come through this level of shaking unscathed.
