Solingen (10955 km ENE from epicenter) / MMI II (Very weak shaking): I was sleeping and had a very strange feeling of inner restless and fear. I got awake and knew it was an earthquake, but i could not explain what was really happening. I was quite surprised when i heard about the earthquake in Chile this morning.
