Frisco (United States, 12403 km E of epicenter) : An event woke me up about 12:30 Saturday morning, 4/25/2015, in Colorado. There was then a small aftershock. FYI, the next step shows folks drinking what seems to be alcohol, we are supposed to choose a scenario, I don't drink, plus I was asleep in bed so no way to choose the correct picture. The drawings are juvenile and insulting. I have an MS in Geophysics from School of Mines. (reported through EMSC)

I thought it was due to low blood pressure recently I am experiencing. Keeping the eyes checked with my wife resting on opposite sofa who also told the similar experience. I opened my eyes and show that ceiling fans were swinging. This took nearly one minute then we collected keys and rushed down from 10th floor taking stair case. Avoided elevator. On the way asked people to climb down as it was earth quake. (reported through EMSC)

Dhaka (Bangladesh, 743 km SE of epicenter) : At first I didn't notice anything. I was walking out of the bathroom as it was happening, but wasn't aware. Then my younger brother, who always seems to get scared from such events, started panicking and calling me. I was then informed, by him and my mother, that an earthquake was occurring. I told my brother, who was eager to head out of the building, to remain calm as I stood by the window. To determine whether it was true or not. Then I felt the slight swaying motion beneath me and confirmed that there was indeed an earthquake. I was checking to see if any neighbors knew about it and if anyone was evacuating the buildings. No one really was, but as I felt a more intense sway a second time, I picked up my youngest brother, who was asleep, and headed down the stairs. As I opened the door, the neighbors started coming out as well. (reported through EMSC)
