Darwin, Mantra on the Esplanade / MMI II (Very weak shaking): I sat on my bed with back on the wal. 5th Floor hotel Mantra on the Esplanade in Darwin. It felt like a vacuüm movement, but was repeated, no sounds of closing doors or windows. Looked it up, found there had been an EQ in .5.2 earthquake, 92km SSW of Merizo Village, Guam. 2020-02-20 01:54:56 at epicenter (19m ago, depth 10km). That was 19 mins before my observation. Maybe an aftershock of that one?
