"I felt it" reports:
Rome (Italy) (133 km S from epicenter)(no details): il piano a coda ha avuto un piccolo assestamento, e finché non ho trovato conferma nel sito EMSC, non potevo pensare fosse stato a causa di una lieve scossa. Nessun movimento percepibile del lampadario, che con la scossa forte delle 21:19 M=6 aveva oscillato di 5 cm, mentre questa era ML=3.4. (via EMSC)
Modena (Italy) (255 km NW from epicenter)(no details): Stasera a Modena si muovevano i lampadari di casa, abito al terzo piano! (via EMSC)
Roma (Italy) (131 km S from epicenter)(no details): A Roma zona prenestina si è sentito abbastanza da far tremare i lampadari e le sedie (via EMSC)
Ascoli Piceno (Italy) (39 km E from epicenter)(no details): Poggiato ad un pilastro di casa effetto massaggio (via EMSC)
Roma (Italy) (132 km S from epicenter)(no details): Roma (via EMSC)
