Alykanas, Zakinthos / MMI IV (Light shaking): On holiday from UK. I was sitting at the table in a restaurant when the floor and table started to shake, customers at other tables started to look around with concerned looks in their faces. My husband then said maybe a light earthquake tremor as we looked at each other. I then saw the waiter reassuring customers that they often have tremors and not to worry.
