Depok (Indonesia) (202 km NW from epicenter)(no details): As usual, I was at my desk working, sitting on a chair with a large & wide flat metal base in contact with the floor. I felt the chair buck upwards slightly (knew it was unmistakably an earthquake) over maybe a minute in duration, two or three times. I've often felt this sensation as I've lived in the greater Jakarta area for nearly 20 years. It also doesn't seem to affect my cats at all. I immediately checked Twitter to see where it was - I understand distance is important - and won't lose any sleep over it tonight (10pm local time now) but will certainly say a prayer or two for those who are affected.
