Pankrati, Athens (413.3 km ESE from epicenter) / not felt
Cairo (Egypt) (759 km SE from epicenter)(no details): I felt like I had felt another one, but I thought there was no way - but sure enough - there was a 4.0 in the same area as the 6.0, so maybe I did. Almost unnerving! This was was minor swaying/trembling, unlike the swaying from the 6.0 from Crete. The 6.0 swaying was very distinct, built up, and lasted a while. I ALMOST went for the doorway for that one, but this one was almost nothing. --El Maadi, Cairo, Egypt (via EMSC)
