"I felt it" reports:
Oulu / MMI IV (Light shaking): I was sitting down, writing on my pc. Suddenly i just heard this noise and it started shaking and vibrating. It lasted around 20 seconds to a minute
(26.7 km NNE from epicenter) [Map] / MMI IV (Light shaking): I heard the windows and walls creak like in a storm. Then it got stronger and I thought the windows were about to come in. When it settled I went outside to see how powerful the storm was. But there was snow coming and barely no wind. Didn't see cars either. So I thought it was a strong gust.
oulu / MMI V (Moderate shaking)
Oulu, Rajakylä / MMI V (Moderate shaking): We felt two clear ”knocks” that shook the house. The knocks woke my husband. I was worried, but found the earthquake information here.
Oulu (20.4 km NE from epicenter) [Map] / MMI V (Moderate shaking) (via app)
Kuopio / MMI II (Very weak shaking)
Lehtoranta 8 / MMI IV (Light shaking)
Oulu / MMI II (Very weak shaking): I thought at first that a big car drove by, but the shaking and noise lasted longer. This earthquake felt similar to the one that happened last year 30th of february.
