chania crete / MMI V (Moderate shaking): definitely felt this quake in our "boutique" hotel with a staircase like a winding road to the third floor. I think everyone got out of the hotel barely dressed!
Nafplion Greece / MMI V (Moderate shaking): More of a strong jolt than shaking. Woke two of us up, but very short duration. Felt as if something had fallen on te roof.
Kato doratso / MMI V (Moderate shaking)
Hydra / MMI V (Moderate shaking)
Perivolos Santorini / MMI V (Moderate shaking): It was a windy morning but this was so much more than wind it felt the bed was shaking and the room and lasted about 30 seconds
Platanias, Crete, Greece / MMI V (Moderate shaking): I woke up as my bed were shaking. The doors on the closet and the mirror on the wall were shaking and making a noise.
Agia Marina Chania / MMI IV (Light shaking): My partner woke up alarmed and woke me up. We both jumped out of bed and stood by the bearing wall of our hotel room.
Tolo, Greece / MMI IV (Light shaking): We're about 120Km from the quake and it woke us up by rattling the plates on the bedroom wall at 0645 local time. At about 1730 on the beach we also had a series of small waves (gives a wave speed of about 11km/h.
Mriehel, Birkirkara / MMI II (Very weak shaking): It was about 5.40am on Fri. 29th August 2014 when I was woken up in my 2nd floor flat by a tremor which shook my bed vigorously.The tremor lasted about 10/15 secs. Quite surprised to experience this in Malta as well as noting later that the epicentre was actually in Greece!
Heraklion (Greece) (198 km SE from epicenter)(no details): Was very quiet afterwards, it was early morning so thats not unusual but it just felt silent for the few seconds afterwards. I am very sensitive as i hate them so much and even though the 1 on the 29/8 was the biggest, i felt the others smaller ones , but no one believed me. (via EMSC)
