"I felt it" reports:
Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky (Russia) (303 km SW from epicenter)(no details): Началось всё с лёгкого дрожания. Я сперва подумал, что стена, на которую я облокотился, задрожала от закрывания двери стоящего рядом холодильника. Затем дрожание стало утихать, но в следующий момент последовали три-четыре очень ощутимых толчка, заставивших меня переместиться в безопасное место, к дверному проёму на выходе на лестничную площадку. (via EMSC)
Earthquakes in same area up to 1 year afterwards (likely aftershocks)
