(32.6 km ENE from epicenter) / MMI VI (Strong shaking): We were in a strong 5 story building on the fifth floor and it suddenly started shaking gently in the beginning after 5 seconds or so, there was this sudden hit , very strong it felt like the earth's surface got punched by a giant underground or something. Then comes the strong steady shake, pots on the shelves coming down, crackling sounds, our building was literally swinging. Wish nobody ever have such or bigger tragedy in their lives but it seems so real and natural.
