(2983.5 km SSE from epicenter) / MMI II (Very weak shaking): I woke up and the first thing that came in my mind was „thats an earthquake and not just the storm outside“ although i have never experienced one before. I checked my phone for the time indtantly: 7:16. I sleep in the attic so I notice quite a lot of whats going on outside. I‘m not sure if i am right, but here is my report.
